Wasabi Mayonnaise

Wasabi mayonnaise is a great dip, that you can use in fish burgers, sushi, and just about anything else you’d like. As its name suggests, all you need to make wasabi mayonnaise is wasabi and mayonnaise. If you want, you can just use a some mayonnaise straight out of a jar, and add wasabi to…

Hemingway Daiquiri

For my first cocktail, I’m making one of my personal favourites: the Hemingway Daiquiri. This delicious cocktail was named after the American writer Ernest Hemingway, because it was supposed to be one of his favourite variants on the Daiquiri.

A little like chavroux, or other types of spreadable goat cheese they serve in those…

We have a number of vegetarian friends, and when they visit, we want to be able to offer them something that’s not just a meat dish minus the meat. And everybody loves burgers. So I…

Quick and Easy Salsa Dip with Nachos

No new burger tonight, we’re making this great easy appetizer instead. You can serve it before your burger, or you can serve it inside your burger if you’re making one of these (or, you can of course do both – which is what I did). This salsa really is minimum input, maximum output: the only…

Californian Aunt Millie

The Californian Aunt Millie is the first Burger Night Burger I ever made. I got my inspiration for this burger from the Cheese and Burger Society website. That site (essentially a smart Pavlovian advertisement for an American cheese brand) offers 40 (non-vegetarian) great looking burger recipes, and the Aunt Millie is one of them. I added avocado…
