Today is a special day because I am introducing the best hamburger. Why is this one so special? Because it is a tortilla burger! All made from scratch so not only the hamburger but also the bread. While the dough is resting you can make the hamburger and then bake a great bread. I promise you this is a great hamburger. So are you ready to learn how to make the best tortilla burger? Lets get started!
I don’t know about you but when I eat a normal hamburger I am always wrestling with either the bread or the hamburger. Either my bread disappears faster than my burger or half of my lettuce, sauce or tomato is falling out.
So I have made a tortilla burger that can easily be eaten with two hands and no food is falling out. You see, the tortilla bread has an oval shape and is wrapped around the burger. The bread is soft and spiced with garlic and seasoned with salt and pepper. It is big enough to build your hamburger. I start with some finely sliced iceberg lettuce, then my burger, then some tomato, pickle and some hot ketchup.
But you can customise this burger all you want and add:
- caramelised onion
- roasted red tomato salsa
- another burger
- tortilla chips
No matter how crazy you make your tortilla burger it will always fit and else you have to make a little bigger bread. The bread is made by hand like the soft vegan flatbread made with warm milk to dissolve the butter. Add the butter mixture to the flour plus the garlic and knead into a elastic dough by hand.
Let it rest for 30 minutes and cut into three pieces. Roll the dough in long oval shape and bake for a couple of minutes in a dry pan no oil. Keep warm.
The hamburger is very simple but good meat doesn’t need a whole lot. Take some quality ground beef and add diced onion, garlic and season with salt and pepper. Shape into hamburger patties and grill on a barbecue, a grill pan or a cast iron skillet. Just a little oil and you can grill your hamburger. Grill for 5 to 6 minutes per side depending on how thick your hamburger is.
I like my hamburger well done but if you like it medium that is fine as well. Stack up the hamburger and serve with some homemade potato chips. Now can you see why the best hamburger is a tortilla burger? Give it a try.
