DIY BURGER KIT: IN COLLABORATION WITH FOODSLUT
While events are not taking place, restaurants are closed and we are encouraged to 'stay at home' we wanted to bring as much of the experience and quality as we can to you - while also having fun with likeminded people, brands and initiatives. We're excited to announce that we have partnered with Foodslut to create the 'slutty burger' DIY kits, with 50% of proceeds going to the Felix Project.
Foodslut was started by Jack Whitehall, his brother Barney Whitehall and friend Marcus Petty Saphon as a way to celebrate and share fun, delicious and ‘slutty’ recipes during lockdown. The food blog recently held their stay at home burger competition, which saw hundreds of entries and also raised funds for The Felix Project. The competition saw Jack cook along live on instagram with the likes of Jamie Redknapp, Gordon Ramsay and his parents, Michael and Hilary. The winners were judged by a panel including Gregg Wallace and Candice Brown.
We're donating 50% of all proceeds to The Felix Project who collect fresh, nutritious food around London that cannot be sold. They deliver this surplus food to charities and schools so they can provide healthy meals and help the most vulnerable in our society. Now more than ever the charity welcomes donations to help families during this period.
Below we have listed a step by step guide to help you prepare the ultimate 'slutty burgers' for you to enjoy with your household.
Included in the pack, making 4 double patty burgers for £30 [+ delivery] :
* 4 x Brioche Buns
* 600g x Burger Patty Mince
* 8 x American Cheese
* FOODSLUT Bacon Jam
* Brown Butter Burger Sauce
* Bread & Butter Pickles
* Crispy Shallots
You will need to provide:
* Iceberg Lettuce
1. PREPARE YOUR BURGERS
Take your HG Walter beef mince out of the packet and split it into 8 equal sized balls (approx 75g each). Very thinly slice your iceberg lettuce (as seen in step 3).
2. TOAST YOUR BUNS
Slice the buns in half and toast them in your frying pan, cut side down until golden brown.
3. ASSEMBLE YOUR BASES
On the bases of your toasted buns, dollop 1 tbsp of brown butter burger sauce and cover the base. Put a generous amount of sliced iceberg lettuce on top and 3 slices of your pickles.
4. THE SMASH
Get your large frying pan smoking hot. Once hot put a small amount of oil in each pan and place 4 of the beef balls in each pan. SMASH them down into the pan until quite thin. Use something large and flat for this, the bottom of a pot works well (oil the bottom of this as well.) Season with salt & pepper. After 3 minutes flip the smashed patties and season again. THIS MAKES 2 BURGERS - to make all 4 at once you will need 2 pans.
5. SLUT THEM UP
Now place a slice of cheese on all 8 patties and on 4 of the patties put 1 tbsp of the bacon jam. After 3 mins of cooking put the patties without the bacon jam on top of the patties with the jam to make 4 double stack burgers. Sprinkle the double stacks with the crispy shallots.
6. THE STEAM (OPTIONAL STEP BUT WORTH IT!)
Top each burger with the top of the bun, for an extra level at this point put a splash of water in the pan and cover with a lid to steam the buns and make the cheese extra melty. Take each burger out of the pan and place on the base.
