Kiwi Style Burger Recipe

Have it ever crossed your mind to create your own fast food burger at your home kitchen? Previously when McDonald in NZ reintroduced their Kiwi Burger for a limited time period. It got me thinking, why not try recreate the kiwi burger myself at my home kitchen.

The benefit of recreating my own burger is that I get to know what type of ingredients used and adjusting the seasonings to suits my taste as well. So the game is on. Off to the supermarkets to get the needed ingredients. Now, what makes a kiwi burger? The kiwi burger sold by McDonald’s consists of a 4 ounce beef patty, griddle egg, beetroot, tomato, lettuce, cheese, onions, mustard, and ketchup on a toasted bun. Hence, it will be the same ingredients needed for my Kiwi Style Burger.

Homemade Kiwi style burger ; homemade burger is always the BEST!

After attempting in making it myself at home, it’s not as fast as I thought it will be after all. Therefore, in order to serve it faster, you may consider preparing all the ingredients much ahead of time. Okay, let’s get down to how you can make my homemade kiwi burger.

4. Divide the meat into 4 equal portions. Shape it into round shape, and ensure the patties are tightly packed without any air pockets in between.

*To ensure it is tightly packed without any air pockets inside, you can toss the patties between your left and right hand a few times.

5. Rest the patties in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or more.

*This step allows the patties to be well marinated and also firm up the patties, making it easier to handle for he next steps.

6. To make the burger sauce, mix mayonnaise, tomato ketchup, HP sauce and hot sauce until well combined. Set aside.

7. To prepare the egg, lightly grease the pan and egg ring with cooking oil.

8. Once the pan is hot enough, pour in the egg.

9. Cover it with a lid and continue to cook for about 1 minute.

10. Remove the lid and egg ring. Flip the egg over and continue to cook for about 30 seconds. Remove and set aside.

11. Heat up the pan with some cooking oil, and add in the burger patties. Lightly press the patties a bit. Continue to cook until it becomes brown, then flip it over and repeat again.

*Make sure you do not over cook the patties here if you do not want a overly well done burger.

12. Place the patties on a baking tray. Layer the top with a slice of cheese. Toast it on the highest level rack of a preheated oven of 240 degree Celsius until the cheese melted. Remove and set aside.

13. Layer the burger bun base with a slice of cheese and toast until cheese melted.

14. Toast the half of the burger too until slightly golden.

*This step helps to prevent the burger from becoming soggy.
