Last week, we decided to have hamburgers as that's something we really love to eat on a regular basis...

I always make my hamburgers from scrap. The "Hamburger Buns" (see recipe), "Meat Patties" (see recipe), "Caramelized Onions" (see recipe) and "Mayonnaise" (see recipe links below) are homemade. In no way would I buy any of those!

So, we
wanted a special cheese to add inside of our hamburgers, so we went for gorgonzola. As usual, we added homemade caramelized onions and sunflower oil mayonnaise, without forgetting the unforgettable ketchup and tabasco sauce!

Needless to say that it was scrumptiously delicious and "dirty" to please!!!

As I never follow any recipe when I make mayonnaise and would have difficulties to give you clear instructions, here's an interesting site where you will be taught how to make homemade "Mayonnaise".

Making mayonnaise is not difficult at all, but you have to remember an important, yet basic detail if you don't wish to end up with a liquid and uneatable pseudo-mayonnaise: the egg yolks and the oil should both be at room temperature! If there is a slight temperature difference between them, you can be sure to be ahead of a disaster...
For my mayonnaise I used quality sunflower oil, vinegar, salt and sweet mustard (mild Thomy mustard).

It sure does taste a whole lot better when "Hamburgers" are homemade!
