Vacation recipe: hamburger with bun the luxe

There is one dish that my eldest son loves: A hamburger with a bun. He loves it (of course) with french fries, but if we try to keep things a little bit healthier, we eat a salad or roasted potatoes as a side dish.

We try to keep the hamburger as healthy as possible, by taking a quality hamburger and combine it with lettuce, cucumber and tomato.
On vacation we've got a skottelbraai. A very popular sort of barbecue in Holland. But you can also use the skottelbraai as a big frying pan. Today a recipe with the skottelbraai: a hamburger with bun the luxe.

Ingredients (4 persons):

  • 4 hamburgers (the best you can get);
  • 4 hamburger buns;
  • 2 tomatoes;
  • 4 slices bacon;
  • lettuce;
  • 50 grams feta;
  • salt en pepper.

Wash the lettuce and tomatoes. Cut the lettuce in sizes just a little bit bigger than the bun. Slice the tomato. Cut the buns through. Crumble the feta with you fingers and add a little bit of salt and pepper.

Cut with a sharp knife a little bag in the hamburger. Put one tablespoon of feta in the hamburger and press the sides, so the cheese won't leek out.
Turn on the skottelbraai (or barbecue). Bake the bacon crispy and leave it to drain the excess fat on kitchen paper. Grill the inside of the buns, until you see the grill marks in it. Lay each bun on a dish. On the bottom of the bun, put the lettuce.
Grill the hamburger, about 3 minutes on each side, until it's done. Put the hamburger on the lettuce. Top with bacon and tomato and as last the top of the bun.
Have a nice meal!
