    Glad you posted that as I was going to ask you about brick cheese as even a quick Google left me a little baffled as to what it actually is.

    Any particular brand I should look out for?

    I always use Monterey jack and the brand is 1840. It melts wonerfully. The cheeses have been the hardest thing for me to find.

    Week 5 brings us to the *BONG... BONG... BONG...* The Big Ben!

    A beef patty in a ciabatta bun with blue cheese, bacon, water cress, and pickled red cabbage.



    Another burger that I thought hmmm not sure about this one but again it was fucking tasty. Whoever is creating these bad boys is a bit of a genius. As with the previous burgers, all the flavours are distinctive and work in perfect harmony with each other. Each flavour brings something to the party and compliments the others.

    The savory/salty blue cheese melts into the flavour of the beef and bacon and sings with the tangy notes of the pickled cabbage while the water cress is there in the background grounding the whole thing. Wonderful! I am going to learn to trust there will all be great no matter how odd it seems. The ciabatta roll worked damn well. It wasnt as crusty as I was expecting and the chew of the dough was perfect and held together well under the weight of all the ingredients.

    for reference, here is the original

    Also, made some beer battered onion rings to go with. Yummy :-D



    Next week I will be tackling the Honky Tonk! Ding Ding... bring on round six :-)
    DROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!

    Love you!

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    The Farmer John: A beef patty nestled between 2 sliced of thick cut freshly cooked eggy bread ( or french bread or gypsy toast - whatever you choose to call it ) with a slice of mature leedhammer cheese, home made hash browns, and crispy bacon - topped off by onion rings.

    It's like breakfast in a burger! :-0



    I couldn't find Limburger that the original called for so I used a mature leedhammer instead. The origonal also had a parsley garnish but even I won't go so far as to buy a bunch of parsley just so I can put a sprig of it on top, besides it tastes like a bush. The kind that grows in the wild for the less mature of you... I know you were thinking it :-P

    This is another that I felt really isn't going to work... but once again it does. Although, another that while tastes great is by far not my favorite burger. The eggy bread isn't so good as it cools down, so that's a problem. The tastes are great together but then as with the last one all the elements are tried and tested common things that work together. It's good, but probably my least favourite so far. It's good on paper but maybe works less well in the real world setting. I would give it 7/10 - very nice but could be a lot better. This burger is a real gut buster too! Phew.

    The origonal for reference here.

    Next week brings the Aunt Millie!

    I made the burger yesterday instead of the weekend because it's my OH's birthday and we are off to Bodeans. Mmmm. I'm gonna need a bigger boat ;-) and by boat I mean trousers! :-0

    I've been watching a shit load of cookery programmes the last couple of weeks - literally around 50 hours a week of the pure cooking shows.

    Today, I finally hit paydirt.


    Ladies and gentlemen, I proudly present to you.....

    Spinach -Mozzarella stuffed burgers.

    I'm gutted I couldn't find a video of it online (the show was called You Gotta Eat Here), as it looked fucking amazing. The basic principle if taking a burger patty, sticking a small ball of cheese mixture in the middle, slapping another patty on top and sealing them together like a pie. Then when you bite down, you get the melted cheese oozing out of the center.

    I've never heard of the whole stuffed-burger thing before, and the whole principle is so obvious I facepalmed pretty hard when I watched earlier. I'm going to make one this week, and will upload suitably decadent photos of my creation (I'm going to use a mix of blue cheese, ricotta and spinach with angus beef).

    Another week, and still no heart attack! The 2 month marks brings us to the Aunt Milli!



    A juicy beef patty in a poppy seed bun with rocket, red onion, sliced tomatoes, black olives, feta cheese crumbles, and italian dressing. origonal here

    A really tasty one, although I found the feta a little bit strong. Very good balance of Mediterranean flavors. I really like sauce in my burgers so been finding the last few a bit dry. I made an italian dressing and sloshed over a good slosh of italian dressing over the bottom with the rocket and then on top of the tomatoes. It did make it nice and juice and added a good tang.

    All in all I really enjoyed this. I love rocket and olives so good for me though im not over keen on feta cheese. I think it's just cottage cheese with delusions of grandeur :-D

    Next week brings the Gypsy! Bring it on! Burgers! burgers! burgers!

    @monkehhh - I always make my own burgers using East London Steak Co. minced beef, but this time I didn't. This time I tried their upminster burgers to see what they are like, very good!!! ... if you make your own or you use their ones I recommend them. And the steaks... mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

    @load 2.0 - Thanks very much :-)

    Try an English goats cheese rather than feta. Should have a little less salty, tangy punch. Other than that, that sounds (and looks) like one tasty burger.

    I quite liked the feta to be honest. I thought it contrasted really well with the rocket and red onion.

    So which ones are you particularly looking forward to? The Highwayman looks brutal. The Brooklyn looks lovely, and The Sheboygan looks interesting but where are you going to get cheese curds from? Also what the fuck are cheese curds? If I had to pick one, The Macho Nacho - but it needs a sauce. Just some salsa or something.
