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.
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.
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.
