This #homemadeMonday is somewhat special to me, as it marks 101 days without fast food. Not that I am a big fast food fan, but a girls´d gotta have a double cheeseburger every now and then, am I right? Well not for 101 days she hasn´t. 101 days ago I embarked on a journey of eating healthier, working out more and being more mindful about my body. They´ve gone by in a jiffy, I have to say. What hasn´t gone by though is my love for burgers. And so I thought the best way to celebrate this achievement was by giving the homemade burger a try. From scratch. Two reasons this burger is special: 1. I made the buns. Read that again – I MADE THE BUNS. I love cooking but man, do I suck at baking. And so I followed @anchacheregi´s burger buns recipe to the core and I am sooo happy with the result. I am adding it here, but the credit is all her´s. 2. I followed Chris Morocco´s tips for how to get the best umami flavour out of onion instead of bacon – and they´re sheer genius. So keep on reading to learn how to make the best homemade burger.
For those days when you feel like having a bucket of KFC crispy strips or hot wings, but you don´t want to deal with the guilt of having eaten fast food (yet again!) afterwards, this #homemadeMonday brings you a delicious recipe for crispy chicken with garlic sauce. It takes close to as long as a drive to your local KFC but I dare say is even more delicious and healthy! Perfect for a hungover weekend spent in your pjs or a friends movie night.
