A Spanish-flavored burger with quality ingredients? It’s possible! Burgers have a very bad reputation, and sometimes they are considered junk food. However, it all depends on the burger. A hamburger from a fast food restaurant is not the same as a homemade, quality hamburger. We will offer you some ideas to customize your burgers with Spanish flavor. For example, you can prepare your burgers with meat from native breeds of Spain that’ll entice you just from the smell. Complements are also very important. Good homemade potatoes are always the right choice. You can also use Spanish products to savor a recipe with a lot of quality on your hamburgers. Without belittling the bacon, a cheeseburger with Cabrales cheese is simply delicious. Do you dare try it?
Is there anyone who doesn’t love serrano ham? Here is a veal hamburger with Iberian pork and a few slices of serrano ham. You could even chop pieces of ham and include them in the meat at the time of shaping! A slice of tomato, onion… You don’t need any more.
This is a simpler recipe than it seems at first, with unique results. If you decide to prepare some burgers with squid ink bread, your guests will be surprised. It’s risky but it produces good results.
To make a delicious burger with mushrooms, we suggest a white wine sauce. In addition, if the meat is Morucha bred veal from Salamanca or veal from Aliste (with I.G.P.), you will make a winning recipe.
With Galician beef or, if you prefer more gourmet, ox, you can prepare a delicious burger. If you like strong flavors, Cabrales cheese will give you that potent flavor you are looking for.
Piquillo peppers are a perfect product to include in many recipes, even in one like this. We suggest you also add Idiazábal cheese for burgers that are boldly flavored and delicious. Keep in mind that if you succeed at cooking these burgers… your family and friends will always ask for them!
