Burger & french fries

First things first – sorry about my english – hope you’ll understand my recipes.
Every now and then there are these days you have this desires for something hearty.


This day was such a day – I felt a great desire to fries.

Lately I  try to create everything myselfself and avoid the supermarket.
Homemade is the best for you, your friends, your family. It is simple and (sometimes) very delicious.
So the road to the French Fries in the freezer is closed.
No fear your going to love these chips and they are made really fast – promised
There were plenty of potatoes from the farmer’s market @home, but only french fries?
No way, if french fries then BURGER’s too.

Here are the ingredients for Home made Burger (XL!!!)  with french fries:

600g ground beef
1 x Onion
4x Burger Buns
4 x Slices Chestercheese
pickled cucumber slices
Ketchup, Mayo, Mustard and what else you like about covering (onions, salat, etc.)
8-10 big floury potatoes (I tryed it with waxy potatoes – it works)
1 -1,5 l Oil (rape oil works well)
1,5 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 teaspoon bell pepper powder
1 TL hot bell pepper
½ TL cayenne pepper
~ 10 basil leafs
a little bit fresh parsil
2 – 4 clove of fresh garlic (2 big ones or multiple small)

Homemade fries are not magic und they can be wonderfully prepared beforehand and serve them later.
Cut the halves again lengthwise into strips. Cut the halves again lengthwise into strips. Depending on the size of the potatoes the stripes could be divided again.

Wash the potatoes thoroughly and then dry them. This is important otherwise the oil will inject the whole kitchen. Give the oil into a big frying pan and heat it up.

Make the wooden spoon test, the oil should be hot in the whole pan. Take a wooden spoon and dip it in the oil. Bubbles arise when the fat is hot.

Put the potatos in the hot oil – portionwise and wait about 15 minutes.The pan should be filled, the fries should not be overlap. After 15 minutes, the fish fries from the fat und drain on paper towel.


Rrepeat until all the fries are pre-cooked. The second and third time the fries take faster color. stove off –not pour the oil away, we need it later.


Put aside fries and now is Burgertime.
Mix the ground beef with spices, add the chopped onion and the chopped garlic – kneadit well. Formed 4 balls from the ground beef. Now you take a pot and push the balls flat, they should have 1.5 cm height  – Patties ready.


It is evening and my stomach growls: Time to finish the meal.
Preheat the oven up to 100 degree. Heat some oil in a large pan – roast the Patties 2-3 minutes (medium/rare) on both sides and und after turning over set uo a slice of cheese. Put them in the oven. Heat the oil for the french fries, out them in and fry them for 3-4 minutes.
Take a pan and heat butter in it, roast the buns  – you will have no mud buns Ok, I confess I bought the buns – I vow improvement! Arrange the toppings on the table. Serve the buns an the burger, put the french fries in a bowl und mix it with (spiced-) salt. Cover the burger as you like it most – guzzle


Enjoy your meal!
