Recipe Share: Burger with Mushroom Sauce + A Party

Sick and tired of the old burger patties? Or, as in our case, we bought too much for Sophie's birthday and didn't know what to make with the rest of the packs. We're not really fond of burgers on a regular basis.

To remedy, I made mushroom a sauce so these patties become consumable for lunch. I decided on a mushroom sauce because we received a big pack of dried mushroom last Christmas. So you see, this recipe is a collaboration of ingredients that's been sitting around far too long in our pantry and freezer.

Here goes the recipe, hope you can try it out. Hubby and I really enjoyed it (the kids aren't burger eaters but they like the sauce).

What you need:
6 burger patties (meat or veggie burger, your choice)
8 dried mushrooms, soaked in water and sliced thinly
1 tbsp butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, julienne
1/2 cup evaporated milk
salt and pepper to taste

What To Do:
1. In a pan, melt butter in medium heat. Saute garlic and onions.
2. Saute mushrooms (when it starts to get done, you can smell that oh so familiar nutty mushroom smell)
3. Put the fire to low and pour in milk, stirring constantly until it thickens. The amount of milk depends on how much sauce you want and ratio of mushroom to sauce. I put in about half a cup of evaporated milk. Add salt and pepper to taste.

You're ready to eat!:)

While on the topic of cooking, we got invited to a birthday celebration at Max's Restaurant. They served the usual menu - resto's signature fried chicken, pancit, etc. What's interestingly new is that the theme of the party was Junior Masterchef. Kids who participated were given a set of gear and utensils for baking: toque, apron, gloves, pot holders and mixing spoons, all with the famous show's logo. Cool right? Sophie, being keen in the kitchen, really enjoyed making choco crinkles, the ingredients were of course provided by Max's. Another activity to make kids really feel kitchen masters for a day was the shake making contest. I say, this is a unique way to celebrate kids' birthday now.
