There’s this restaurant in the hipster neighborhood of Wynwood (Miami) called Kush that serves an amazingly delicious burger. The burger is so…well, let me just copy the menu description for you:
Burger served with guava jelly, melted Gruyere, stuffed with potato stix, crispy bacon, LoKal sauce and then pressed on a flat top grill.
Are you drooling yet? You should be!
I was inspired by this burger to make my own – albeit less decadent – burger.
(This is really less of a recipe & more of a burger topping suggestion!)
We had some Bubba burgers left over from a family barbecue, brie cheese left over from another recipe, & guava paste because I’m Cuban & it’s a staple in my house. Bingo.
If this combination sounds weird to you, just know that guava & cheese is a CLASSIC in the Hispanic community.
I cut up the brie & guava paste to melt over the pre-cooked patty.
To complete this beautiful burger I turned to another classic Hispanic pairing – mayoketchu. As the name suggests, it’s equal parts mayonnaise & ketchup. It’s also surprisingly tasty to someone who hates ketchup (me).
Put it all together on a bun & you have an wonderfully Hispanic Hamburger.
I’m not the greatest at taking pictures of sandwiches/burger, but that still looks pretty great to me!
