Nitza Villapol’s Cheeseburger Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Pound of Ground Beef (I suggest 80/20 Chuck)
  • 1/2 Pound Ground Pork or Ham
  • 1 Small Onion
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 1 Tablespoon of Mustard (Yellow)
  • 6 slices of processed cheese (we used Velveeta)
  • 6 buns (Potato Bread Rolls taste best)
  • Mustard, Salt, Pepper & Ketchup

The recipe for Nitza Villapol’s Cheeseburger is from her cookbook “Cocina Al Minuto”. The recipe calls for the burger to be made out of half ground beef (I suggest 80/20 chuck) and half of either ground ham or ground pork. We’re going to make ham.

Directions: 

Step 1: Grinding of both the ham/beef and pork/beef mixtures with onions, garlic and mustard.

Over the course of the last 5 years or so I've added News, Opinions, & Tips on a variety of Food related subjects. My first love will always be Burgers but Comfort Food is where it's at. At the end of the day I’m a regular dude who writes about a bunch of things I think you should know about.
