Halloween Monster Burger


Burger patties
• 1 pound ground beef (450 grams)
• ½ teaspoon salt
• ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
• 2 teaspoons dried thyme
• 1 large egg
• 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
• 4 tablespoons cooking oil

Mayo sauce
• 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
• 4 teaspoons ketchup

Burger monsters
• 4 Turano Brioche Rolls
• Baby romaine lettuce (2 leaves per bun)
• 4 slices of cheese , see note 3
• 4 tablespoons ketchup (or to liking)
• Dill pickles , sliced lengthways (4 slices)
• 8 large green olives (without stones)


① In a mixing bowl, combine ground beef, salt, pepper, thyme, egg and breadcrumbs. Using your hands or fork, mix thoroughly. You want to distribute the seasoning as evenly as possible.
② Divide into 4 equally-looking pieces. Roll them into balls and place onto a tray lined with baking parchment. Press down until you get large and thin patties. Press each in the middle to make a slight dent.
③ Heat oil in a large skillet, place patties in and cook to your preferred level, about 3-4 minutes per side. You can also grill them or oven-bake.
④ In a small bowl, mix together mayo and ketchup.
⑤ Take a Brioche Bun base, spread with about a tablespoons of mayo sauce, lettuce, cooked burger.
⑥ Top with a slice of dill pickle and a slice of cheese that you have cut some triangles out so it looks like teeth. Spread about a tablespoon of ketchup over (to resemble "blood") and cover with bun.
⑦ Stick 2 large green olives onto 2 toothpicks and stick these into the bun.
