Instructions to make the Jarlsberg® cheeseburger.

Start with the garnishes and set aside. Sliced Jarlsberg® cheese, tomatoes and red onion, lettuce leaves (pre-washed), and fry the mushrooms and bacon to your preference. This way everything can be added the moment your burgers are ready. For the burgers you’ll need 1.75 lbs of ground beef, 2 egg whites and 2 tablespoons of salt. Grind the meat yourself using a chilled grinder, or head to your local butcher or supermarket for some great quality ground beef. Blend egg whites carefully into the meat, but be gentle, work as little as possible with the meat at this point. It can quickly get too hard and compact. Then shape four large burgers, preferably using a metal ring to get equal size. Rub down the edges on the burger so that you prevent them from splitting up when you flip them. Place the burgers on grease proof paper and keep them in a cool place (like your fridge). Heat the pan to superhot. Add a few drops of canola oil, season the burgers with salt and pepper on one side and fry them one by one, starting with the seasoned side down. After two to three minutes flip it, and repeat the procedure, let the burger rest and fry, getting a nice crust. When the two to three minutes are up, lower the temperature and let them rest in the pan. This will sort of post-cook your burger, you want them to stay pink in the middle. Or, grill burgers 5-6 minutes per side, cook to preference. Add a slice ofJarlsberg® cheese on each burger, gently melt. While waiting for the cheese to melt, heat the hamburger buns in the pan or in a toaster. Add ketchup and chipotle mayonnaise on top and bottom – before adding lettuce, tomato, onion, the finished burger, bacon, and the fried mushrooms. Bon Appétit!
