'Bangers and Mashed' Burgers

Although technically Bangers and Mashed is a recipe using mashed potatoes and either beef or pork as the meat, why not combine the two and enjoy an imaginative take on comfort cuisine?

'Bangers and Mashed' Burgers Directions

  1. In a large bowl, add the pork, beef, chives, lemon zest, peppers, thyme and marjoram and mix well. Make into 4 patties. Coat the outside of each burger with the grated potato.
  2. Over medium-high heat, in a large skillet, add the burger and cook on each side about 3-4 minutes, or until the potato crust begins to brown. Turn and cover.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking until burger is well done*. Now for those of you who wish to have a burger other than well done, simply grill over medium-high heat to your desired doneness. I just happen to love these burgers cooked through.
  4. Remove and served on toasted English muffins. top with Cheddar cheese if you wish or some Dubliner Cheese.
