A burger you could find a fancy restaurant, or make at home for less and impress anyone! This thing has it all! A beautifully toasted brioche bun, a Waygu patty, bacon, bree, blueberry compote, honey bourbon balsamic onions, and Arugula. Also, that Dan-Good flavor! You hungry yet?!
So for the burger, I planned on using some good grass fed beef, but the waygu popped up at my grocery. It wasn’t that expensive and no it’s not the Japanese stuff, but you could definitely tell it was a better beef. I’d say use grass fed or something “better”, but honestly just use whatever is accessible to you! It will still be delicious, promise!
The blueberry compote is VERY simple. You can do this with fresh or frozen blueberries. All you really need on top of those are sugar and lemon juice. Some folks add other stuff, but for this burger, you can use the simple stuff. Take it off the heat in the end to firm up. Save the rest for pancakes, ice cream, or something sweet!
Now for the onions. This is onion heaven. I’ve had balsamic onions before, but I was excited when I came up with these. They’ll add some sweet, funky, strong, salty flavor that will compliment everything on this dish, especially the cheese and sweet compote.
And that’s all there really is to it! These are great for a date night or impressing family. Serve with fancy homemade fries or a salad. Enjoy!
