The “Au Chalet” Burger
As weather is getting colder the “Au Chalet” Burger is perfect to warm-up. It is kind of based on the the Raclette dish, which is a generally hot melted Raclette cheese served on a potato with some thin cured meat and pickles.
You can play with the ratio pickled onions/ gherkins/ garlic to suit your tastes. If you cannot find cured meat or ham, you can replace it with some bacon I guess.
Ingredients for 2 burgers:
4 slices of Raclette cheese
3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
1 clove of garlic
10 little pickled onions
1 small onion
300gr of minced beef, pork or mixed
4 tomato slices
Dry cured meat or ham
Mince the gherkins and pickled onions and mix it with mayonnaise and crushed garlic.
Grate the potato and onion and mix them together.
Preheat some oil in a pan on medium heat, shape the potato and onion mix in two thin pancakes and fry them until golden brown on both sides.
Form two patties out of the mince and cook as you prefer.
Slice into thin stripes the dry cured meat.
Toast the buns.
