Can anyone tell me the origin of “Cracking”? How did that come to mean “really good”? The recipe for today in our Jamie’s Food Revolution cook-along is:
- A Cracking Burger, pg 146.
I have now cooked this recipe twice. Both times were really good. Tonight I reduced the amount of crackers in it because it was a little too much like meatloaf with the amount Jamie called for. I reduced it by half tonight and next time I may reduce it a little more. My first try I made very thick burgers and the cooking time was significantly longer than 4 minutes a side. This time I made them thinner and put a sheet pan over the burgers on my grill pan and it went much quicker. I even tried these out with company and they were a hit. All 6 kids ate every bite. This is definitely a recipe we will use over and over. I was told tonight this recipe is much better than the burgers I have made in the past…how’s that for a compliment! I really like the parsley,it gives the burgers a very fresh taste.
