King Trumpet Burger

This week the I♥CC members make any Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall recipe that could be found in a pub. I think a

King Trumpet Burger

King Trumpet Burger

is pub food at its best and goes well with a beer. I wanted to use portobello mushrooms for this recipe because finding a puffball is impossible for me. Unfortunately my favourite supermarket offered no portobellos, so I used King Trumpet instead

King Trumpet Burger

An incredibly satisfying bit of fast food.

  1. Put a frying pan over a medium heat, add the fat, then add the bacon and cook until it is as crisp as you like it. Remove the bacon and keep it warm.
  2. Add the slices of puffball then turn them over immediately, to stop the first side absorbing all the fat, and fry for about 3 minutes, until golden. Flip them over again and fry the other side for the same amount of time. Season the puffball.
  3. Cut open the baps, add two slices of bacon to each, then some of the dressed leaves, then a couple of slices of puffball or mushroom of your choice. Close the baps and serve King Trumpet Burger straight away.
