Super Luxurious Over-the-Top Burger

This is a burger recipe. No big deal there you may well be thinking. But this is a special recipe. Very special. I shit ye not. Actually with reference to that phrase check this out. You either think that is funny or you don’t. If you think it is funny good. If you don’t think it’s funny then good for you.

Anyway, back to the recipe. What is so special about it? Well let’s have a look at the ingredients.


Nothing amazing. I mean there are a lot of ingredients.

  • Ground beef (quite fatty otherwise you get dry burgerage)
  • Cheese slices (Leerdammer is a good one)
  • Beefsteak tomato
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • Baps
  • Streaky Bacon
  • Mushrooms
  • Jack Daniel’s BBQ Sauce
  • French’s American Mustard
  • Ketchup

Plus one special ingredient:


This is Truffle Butter. My sister got it for me when she and her husband visited Lake Como a while back. I was wondering what to do with it. Maybe something exotic. But then I thought ‘Sod it; I’ll stick some in a burger’. Nice.


A big, super-loaded burger. With all the trimmings.

So I did.

First I souped-up the baps. They looked a bit sad…


So I brushed them over with some egg wash infused with a touch of sugar and baked for 3 mins…


Then I set to work on the burgers, mixing a table spoon of the truffle butter into the beef, along with an egg…


…and some grainy mustard apparently; don’t remember doing that but the picture never lies.

Gently press the meat into some cutters to form patties…


Put them in the fridge for half an hour to firm up a bit. Make the mushroom topping. Very simple. Slice and dry fry the mushrooms and then add the BBQ sauce…


Grill the bacon…


Fry the burgers in a ridged griddle to enable burger fat run-off…


Add the cheese for the last few mins to enable a bit of melting.

Create the burger sauce by combining some ketchup with an equal amount of mustard.


Now all you have to do is construct.

First get a bun and cut in half. Smear on some burger sauce…


Add a cheese topped burger…


Then some mushroom…


Then a slice of tomato…


Mmm. Not enough cheese…


Now for the bacon…


A bit of lettuce…


Now I think this needs a bit more burger sauce…


Just remembered. I’ve got some pickles in the back of the fridge…


Enough. Where’s the bap…


Serve with fries….Nuff said…


But what about the taste? Well the truffle butter really shone through. Definitely a super rich creation.

  1. Yup, that is a creation all right. I don’t think you missed a thing & that truffle butter, well that is something I’d really like to try. Glad you included the photo to show me what a ‘bap’ is.

  2. This also reminds me of the old joke: A ball of twine asks a piece of raggedy string if it can tie up a parcel. No. I’m a frayed not, came the reply. Why did I type that?
