It's the age old debate, sweet or savory? It's time for a snack and you have no idea which to choose. Luckily chefs around the world were wise enough to create candied bacon, and just like that the debate was put to rest. Candied bacon is delicious on it's own, however it doesn't exactly pair well with other food items. But now we've found the perfect vessel to deliver candied bacon directly to you mouth.
Introducing the Grand Marnier Nutella Mousse Dessert Burger. It's the visual orgasmic burger made entirely of cake, candy and fruit jelly. The bun is a doughnut, the meat is made of hardened Nutella mousse, the cheese is passion fruit gelatin (though actual cheese would have been perfectly acceptable), the tomatoes are strawberries and the pickles are kiwi slices. Throw in some candied bacon and you have yourself the ultimate dessert burger creation.
This burger is the brainchild of Burger Bar in San Francisco, so although you can't buy one unless you're willing to take a really long road trip, you pal Jeremy has broken down the recipe for you.
Here's what you'll need to make your own dessert burger.
Nutella Mousse: 1.5 cups of heavy cream, 1 cup Nutella. 1 Ounce of Grand Marnier Whip ingredients together and pour mixture into a burger shaped container and refrigerate for 4 hours. (or place in a bowl, refrigerate for 2 hours, remove mixture, shape into burger patty and refrigerate for another 2 hours)
Passion fruit gelatin: In a bowl, mix 1 cup of fruit juice with 2 envelopes (1/2 ounce total) of unflavored gelatin. In a saucepan, boil cups of fruit juice and pour boiling juice over gelatin mix until it's all dissolved then pour into a container with a square shaped bottom. You can either make a block of gelatin and cut it once its set or you can pour some in the bowl, add a layer of plastic wrap then pour a little more and keep adding plastic wrap to separate your gelatin "slices". Refrigerate for 4 hours.
(If you're really lazy like me, I think a thick slice of yellow cheddar would be quite the tasty alternative)
Candied Bacon: Mix brown sugar with a bit of cayenne pepper and coat your bacon strips. Line baking sheet with foil, place your strips and broil at 350 degrees until the sugar starts to bubble (15-20 minutes)
The rest is easy: cut a doughnut in 2 (just buy a doughnut, this recipe is complicated enough)
cut your strawberry and kiwis into slices
Assemble it all into one glorious tower and enjoy!
