(Edit: Some people are having issues that I’m using Coon Cheese. Get over it people, it’s an Australian brand and if you have probs with the name then head on over to www.coon.com.au If you have issues with how trashy this ‘burger’ is that’s fine.)The Luther Burger. It’s a bacon cheeseburger topped with a fried egg and a slice of pineapple and Krispy Kreme donuts for the hamburger buns… I came up with the idea of making these babies for Richard’s food blogger meetup when I was stuck on ideas and entertaining myself reading this is why you’re fat knowing that everyone would be bringing super nicely presented foods haha yes I know this pretty much junk food but eh whatevs
Stuff to make the Luther Burger: box of Krispy Kreme donuts, bacon rashers, pineapple slices, cheese slices, hamburger patties and eggs
First cook your bacon. I placed the bacon on a tray and grilled in the oven until nice and crispy because I have issues with bacon spitting its hatred at me
Burger patties a-cooking
I didn’t have any egg rings so had to cook the eggs one at a time in this mini egg pan and then flipping into another pan to seal the egg yolk innards
And then the fun bit assembling time!
Slicing the donuts horizontally is the oddest feeling.
Since I’d cooked the patties in the morning I just nuked them in the microwave before assembling
Sadly 1 tin of pineapple slices holds only 8 slices so 4 of the burgers missed out on the tastyness.
I <3 bacon
Cheese slices. I used Coon cheese slices but I think next time (rofl maybe not) I would use the orange American cheese
Plonk the top donut half on top and tadah!
So very tasty oh yes! Sweet and salty with a truckload of guilt. Now who wants to try it deepfried?
