Attack of the mini’s!!!

July 1, 2009

Well, here I am, just another blogger with a blog that he never updates.  I swore that wouldn’t be me, but here I am.  Embarrassed?  YES.  Sad? YES.

I recently helped waiting tables at a really fancy restaurant where they had all kinds of cool appetizers.  Of course they were all meat based, but the idea was really neat.  Basically you take something that everyone likes, and you make it really small.  When I was a youngster, I liked little things a lot.  Like micro machines, trolls, power wheels etc.  I came up with the idea to make mini Reuben’s, and sliders (mini hamburgers)
The mini reubans were made with the exact same recipe that I made the big person ones with.  The bread was this tiny little party bread stuff I found.  The mini burgers were made with this stuff, which is GREAT for mixing.  Its unlike other packaged burgers, cause this stuff you can put in a bowl just like the rest of your friends do, and add all kinds of cool shit.  This burger in particular is called the “Stan-burger”.

In the burger

  • diced greek green olives
  • sriracha (spicy option)
  • roasted garlic
  • vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • soy sauce
  • liquid smoke

On the burger

  • Romain lettuce
  • morel mushrooms
  • caramelized vidalia  onions
  • avocado slices
  • FYH cheddar cheese
  • (Top bun) – curry ketchup (ketchup, curry, onion powder, garlic powder, splash of soy sauce – heated, and whiped)
  • (Bottom bun) – Annies goddess dressing

Put in as much as you can handle of all of the ingredients, I just eyeballed it.  Also its nice to toast the buns.
