Hey there– Do you like these little “flattie” buns? I’m trying to decide, myself. On one hand, they are less calories and don’t overpower the burger wrapped inside them. On the other hand, they can get squsihy if you put as much sauce on your burger as I do (now who’s counting calories?) and it seems a little like I’m missing out on the toasty big bun.
OK, but on to the burgers. These things were surprisingly delicious. We liked them even more than I anticipated. Just a savory departure from the standard mustard and catsup on beef. And, of course, who doesn’t like all those grilled onions tucked inside that bun? If you like curry, you should give them a try…
CURRIED PORK BURGERS
1/4 cup lite mayonnaise
1/4 tsp. curry powder
tiny pinch of salt
1 pound ground pork
1/4 cup red onion, chopped fine
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. curry powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
Red onion slices, about 1/2 inch think
Buns, lettuce, tomato…
Thoroughly mix up all the burger ingredients. Shape it into 4 patties and grill them on a bar-b-que or skilllet lightly sprayed with cooking spray– about 12 minutes or until an internal thermometer reads 160 degrees. Grill the red onion slices as well, just until they start to brown around the edges.
Toast up the buns and put them together, layering the burger, lettuce, tomato, curry mayo and grilled onions. Eat them while they’re hot! oh yummm.
