All-American Waffle Burger

Hello, world! This is our first ever post on The Blueberry Bison, so we thought we’d start off with a fun experiment from this weekend: the All-American Waffle Burger.

To prepare the pickle waffle “buns”:

  • 1 cup AP flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • 3 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 ½ cup milk
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 5 pickles, minced as small as you can

Sift together your flours, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Then make a well and pour in your milk, egg, and melted butter. Last but not least, add your minced pickles and mix until smooth.

When using a waffle iron, follow settings to create a waffle to your liking. Once cooled, separate into quarters and set aside.

To prepare the maple ketchup:

  • ½ can tomato paste
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp lemon juice

Combine tomato paste, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup and lemon juice in bowl. Whisk until you achieve a smooth consistency.

To prepare greens:

  • 1 full bunch of mustard greens
  • 1 tablespoon brown mustard
  • 3 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • pinch of salt and pepper

Chiffonade mustard greens. Combine with mustards, salt, and pepper and then sauté in olive oil until lightly wilted.

To prepare the burger:

  • 1 ½ lb of 80/20 ground chuck
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 4 slices of American cheese, cut in half
  • 4 slices of Swiss Cheese, cut in half

Take raw ground chuck and form small slider burgers (roughly 3 oz. each). Sprinkle with salt and pepper before pan searing in a lightly oiled pan until desired temperature. Top with cheese and melt.

To assemble: just like a traditional burger, we started with the waffle “buns” followed by mustard greens, tomato (2 medium-sized tomatoes sliced thin should do), burger, and ketchup. Enjoy!
