BUN, BURGER, CHEESE, VEGGIES, FRIES
How to Make YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME BURGER & FRIES DESSERT
- 1BUN: Cut each donut in half (like a hamburger bun). Set "buns" aside.
- 2HAMBURGER: Make your favorite brownie recipe. While baked, finished brownies are still in the pan, a bit cooled, but not too much, use a round cookie cutter, about 3 inches in diameter. (the size could change depending upon the size of the "bun". You want it to fit nicely on the bun) Use the cookie cutter to cut out six (6) circles ("hamburgers") from the brownies. (eat whatever brownie pieces remain :-))
- 3Place each "burger" on top of the bottom part of each "bun".
- 4PICKLES: Wash and peel the kiwi fruit. Slice and place slices on top of the "burger".
- 5TOMATOES: Wash the strawberries, and cut off hull and leaves. Slice and place on top of the "pickles".
- 6CHEESE: Melt white chocolate. Add yellow food coloring until you get the right color for "American Cheese". (sure, you can change the coloring to any "cheese" you prefer.)
- 7Spray cooking spray onto freezer or waxed paper. Spread "cheese" onto the paper in long, rectangular shape(s).
- 8After "cheese" hardens a bit, cut lines down the rectangle horizontally and vertically, to make six (6) squares. Cool for approximately ten (10) minutes in the refrigerator, until "cheese" hardens but is still malleable.
- 9Remove from refrigerator, peel off one square slice and place on top of the "tomato" slices, draping the edges over the sides of the "burger." (Note: you can certainly put more slices of "cheese" on each burger...go wild!)
- 10KETCHUP: Combine "ketchup ingredients in a blender. Puree until smooth. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, just until the mixture will puree. Puree should be thick. Pour/spread (I used a plastic sandwich bag with an end cut as a piping tool for the "ketchup"), and drizzle over top of "cheese".
- 11MUSTARD: Combine "Mustard" ingredients in a blender. Puree until smooth. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, just until the mixture will puree smoothly. Puree should be thick. Pour/spread (I used a plastic sandwich bag with an end cut as a piping tool for the "ketchup"), and drizzle over top of "ketchup" and "cheese". You now have a finished burger on top of 1/2 of the "bun".
- 12Put the remaining top of "bun" on the finished "burger". Sprinkle sesame seed (or crumbled Rice Krispies) on top of bun.
- 13FRENCH FRIES: Peel seed and slice your mangoes into "French fry slices". You may server your "fries" with "Ketchup" alongside or drizzled over the "fries", plated with your finished "cheeseburger".
- 14BONUS STEP: You can make and add "lettuce" to the burger using the same ingredients and directions for the cheese, with green food coloring instead, and flair out the edges of the "lettuce" before adding to the "burger".
