I couldn't possibly leave the great American burger out of this book. Sadly, the classic burger has gone from humble beginnings (as something brought over by German immigrants) to become a symbol of fast food and junk. But when made at home with quality ingredients, it's an absolute joy. So, introducing my great American burger, and its little cousin, the 'slider', or mini burger . . . Have fun with your toppings and flavour combos and enjoy.
