Americans are celebrating Pie Day and well so am I!
We are home celebrating with these delicious homemade burger pies.
Homemade burgers are the best! Not my opinion, a fact! I love adding fresh garlic, and herbs to my meat before turning them into delicious patties.
These burger pies have the juiciest and most flavourful burger patties, a generous dollop of caramelised onion, and 2 kinds of cheese all wrapped up in store-bought puff pastry because I’m a lazy lady. How are you celebrating today?
Cheese Burger Pies
600g beef mince
1 medium onion, sliced
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1 teaspoon jeera powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup bread crumbs
50 g mozzarella
50g cheddar cheese
1 rolls of puff pastry
For the caramelised onion
28 g butter
1 large onion, finely sliced
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
pinch of salt
In a frying pan on medium-high heat, melt the butter and add in the onions. Spread the onions out evenly over the pan and let cook, stirring occasionally. After 10 minutes, sprinkle a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of sugar on the onions. Cook until the onions are a rich, browned color. At the end of the cooking process add in the balsamic vinegar help deglaze the pan and bring some additional flavor to the onions. Set aside to cool.
Fry the onion until soft. Add to a bowl along with the mince, garlic, egg, spices, and breadcrumbs. Mix together.
Divide mixture into four equal portions and shape each into a patty.
Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a pan and fry each patty until golden on either side. Place the patties aside to cool.
Roll out the puff pastry, using a small plate, slightly larger than the size of your patty, cut off the excess dough.
Place the cooled patty on the disc, along with some caramelised onion and cheese mixture.
Roll the remaining puff pastry out into a slightly larger disc than the previous one, and drape this over the top of the burger patty. Crimp the edges with your finger and thumb to secure the pie.
Egg wash the top and bake at 180C for 30 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
Serve with a side of chips or a light salad. Enjoy!
