Dorito Burger

Thick all beef burger patties packed with crushed doritos served up with beer battered onion rings and cheddar cheese oozing with a sweet and spicy creamy jalapeno honey mustard. Oversized and just how dad would do it. Dad’s burgers are stacked thick with a large beef patty that’s bursting with crushed cheesy Doritos, thick cut crispy beer battered onion rings, melted cheddar cheese and dripping in a sweet and spicy honey mustard sauce.

We’ve prepared something fun and supersized just for dad. Centered around Father’s Day packed with things dad likes all smashed together into a burger because what dad doesn’t love a burger. You’ve got your beef, chips, beer, fried food, cheesy, spicy, and sweet and of course bigger=better. These big guys give an old fashioned burger a run for their money. They are of course on the heavy side and potentially educe a food coma, but that’s what comfort food is all about.

DORITO PATTIES

Think regular homemade burger patties but with loads of crushed Doritos. Ground beef mixed with fresh oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper and of course crushed cheese Doritos. They add a great cheesy, crunchy bite to the burgers and are mixed into the patties rather than coated on the outside, this is done to prevent them from burning. Love adding fresh oregano to burgers it adds a bold earthiness into the mix and we chose to keep the ingredient list short and sweet as to not take away the beef flavour and overpower the Doritos. 

We rolled the patties for these extra thick and extra big. This is intentionally done to create this BIG ASS burger. But really if you wanted to simply roll out smaller patties and even smash them that works well too. Serve up a double stacked patty instead of a thick single one. Whatever works best for you.

BEER BATTERED ONION RINGS

Extra crispy with extra crunch these burgs get stacked with thick cut beer battered onion rings. This step is the most time consuming part of this entire burger.  When making beer battered anything, whether it’s fish or chicken for tacos- this is the blend we use. I like to use a light Mexican lager but any lager would work too. If you don’t want the beer you just use soda water. The carbonation is key to getting that light and crispy not too thick fried layer. 

If your not comfortable frying food or don’t have the time use frozen rings and follow the directions. It’s not often we get to substitute those sautéed onions for onion rings instead as a burger topping.  It’s definitely a splurge. If your looking for other ways to add that crunch to the burgers, some good options are more Dorito chips or french fries/ tater tots. I would still add some type of onion raw or pan fried that way your not missing out on any flavours.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 2 cups cheese Doritos
  • 2 TBS garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup fresh oregano finely chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • cheddar cheese slices
  • Oversized sesame burger buns
  • 1 TBS smoky mustard or substitute dijon
  • 1 TBS red chili flakes
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 TBS honey
  • 6 =8 jalapenos rounds thinly sliced
  • Beer onion rings can use frozen instead
  • 1 large white onion
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 TBS baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 TBS smoked paprika
  • 1 mexican styled lager
  • Oil for frying

Instructions

  • 1. To make the burgers: add the doritos to a food processor, blender or into a bag and crush with a mallet. Blend into a fine crumb texture. In a large shallow bowl, combine crushed doritos, ground beef, garlic powder, oregano and season with a good amount of salt and pepper. Use your hands to mix well. Form 6-8 oversized balls (3-4 oz) for the burgers and set aside. Or form 2 oz regular sized burgers (about 12).
  • 2. To make the sweet and spicy sauce: in a bowl mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, honey, chili flakes, jalapenos (add more for extra spicy). Mix until well combined. For a subtle beer flavour add just a touch to the sauce to make it a little thinner.
  • 3. For the onion rings(if using frozen, bake according to package directions): Cut the onion into 1/2 inch thick rounds. Separate each layer into individual rounds. In a shallow bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, paprika and salt. Mix to combine with a fork. Coat each onion ring into the dry mixture and set aside. Once all the onion rings are done, seperate the mixture in half into another shallow bowl. To that bowl pour in 1/3 cup of beer. The mixture should resemble a pancake batter. Dip each ring into the beer battered and again into the remaining dry mixture. Repeat until all are done.
  • 4. Heat vegetable oil to 350 degrees F. Once the oil is hot, drop in the onion rings and cook for roughly 1 minute per side. Do this in batches if needed.
  • 5. When ready to cook the burgers, press them down directly on the grill using a large metal spatula. If you don't have one, you can pre-press them using the back of a side plate. Press the burger down until it reaches the size of the buns. The patties should still be thick. Cook flipping once about 3-4 minutes per side. Melt the cheese directly on the burgers during the last minute of cooking.
  • 6. To serve: spread the sauce on the bottom and top buns, add the dorito patties and top with a few crispy onion rings. Enjoy!
