"You want a sun dried tomato, feta cheese and olive burger? Go for it. How about a jalapeno, Monterrey Jack and avocado burger? Bring it on.
Deerfield Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 9, 2011
The hamburger, one of America’s favorite meals for more than a century, is getting a makeover.
While parents, grillmasters, and chefs have tried for years to spice up the basic burger by perilously perching other foods on top, today’s creative foodies have found a better way. Cooks are now stuffing ingredients inside the burger prior to cooking, allowing the meat to absorb the additional flavors without the messy balancing act, and enabling them to satisfy every taste and request.
Stuffing burgers by hand, however, is as sloppy and ineffective as the approach it was designed to replace, so the evolution of the burger may not have happened without a neat and easy-to-use new device called the Burger Pocket Press. This kitchen and grilling aid creates perfectly shaped patties, with all meats, cheeses, vegetables and sauces sealed inside a pocket formed inside the meat. Some are saying, with tongue planted firmly in cheek, it is the greatest advancement for the burger since the bun.
“You want a sun dried tomato, feta cheese and olive burger? Go for it. How about a jalapeno, Monterrey Jack and avocado burger? Bring it on,” said Dave Lamm of Tailgating Ideas. “The possibilities are only limited by your imagination of what combinations would taste good together.”
The Burger Pocket Press is the brainchild of Michael Ajakie, who had his moment of inspiration after watching Food Network chefs struggle to stuff burgers by hand as he had at home. “It surprised me that even at that level, there was no device that would make patties that had ingredients evenly distributed and wouldn’t break apart during cooking. The Burger Pocket Press works equally well for both home and professional use and we're excited to see all the extreme burger recipes this device has inspired," said Ajakie, who owns a construction company when he’s not changing the way America eats.
