Everyone I know loves a fat, juicy burger with a side of hot, salty fries. But like the elusive cupcake, a good burger is so difficult to come by. Granted the definition of good is hugely subjective, case in point Mc.D's prosperity burger. I was so full of hope having read countless reviews about this seasonal treat..only to have my bubble go 'pffffttttttttt' when I finally took a tentative bite: soggy buns check, patty that tasted like cardboard check, watery peppery brown liquid check. I mourned that night..for the unnecessary wasting of precious calories.
Rice burger with sweet potato wedges~ Because it's healthier and because I would rather stop talking for a week than look at another potato.
Half a cup cooked sushi rice, formed into patties and panfried till crispy
1 piece butterflied chicken thigh, grilled [ I marinated mine in worchestershire sauce, honey, smashed lemon grass and garlic]
Fresh lettuce, tossed in the pan juices from the chicken
some tomato slices
Sweet potato, boiled to soften, tossed in olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted for 30 minutes
Assemble burger, and enjoy a non-soggy bun, perfectly juicy meat and crunchy veg that hasn't been lying at the back of someone's fridge for a month.
