Danish Do-Again Burgers

Danish Do-Again Burgers
Well by now you know how slave feels about left-overs! Just a short time ago we did Danish Burgers that were fantastic. However the recipe made enough for 6 burgers. Two were frozen for a latter day.

Well slave thought it would help to show you just one of the many ideas and possibilities you have to make another meal with those frozen burgers that doesn’t have to taste like leftovers.


2 frozen Danish burgers thawed
1 cup light sour cream
2 tbs all purpose flour
1 can Chicken broth
4 or 5 red potatoes
¼ cup non fat creamer
2 tbs butter or margerine
1 lbs fresh green beans, snapped


Pre heat the oven to 400 degrees
Do your cutting first! In this case, peel and cut the potatoes and wash the green beans.

Put the potatoes in a pot with just enough water to cover by an inch.
In a large bowl add the green beans and 1 tbs of oil. Mix them up until they are lightly coated. Spread on to a foil lined baking sheet and sprinkle some kosher salt.

Heat some oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Start the water & potatoes on to boil.

Brown the thawed Danish burgers in oil for only about 3 minutes per side, then remove from pan and lay a piece of foil over them.

While they were browning, mix the flour into the sour cream (if you are careful, you can do this in the sour cream container).

Add the chicken broth to the skillet and stir up any of the browned bits from the bottom! Stir in the sour cream – flour mixture.
Continue to stir until it is incorporated and starts to thicken.

Reduce the heat to a simmer, add the burgers and cover.

While that simmers, slide the green beans into the oven. Both will cook for about 15 minutes.

Now back at the potatoes! When that comes to a boil, reduce the heat until it just bubbles. Let cook for about 15 minutes. In a small microwave safe bowl heat ¼ cup of creamer and 2 to 3 Tbs of butter or margarine. This will only take about 30 seconds.

When potatoes are done, dish them into a large heat proof bowl and add the creamer mixture and mash away!

Don't worry if they look too runny. As you mash they will thicken up.
Taste and adjust with salt and pepper. When they have reached what you are happy with, stir in 1 egg yolk, dish up and put on table.

Dish up the green beans in a bowl.
Now take out the burgers and place on the baking sheet. Cover with 1 slice of Havarti cheese and place with buns into the turned off oven.

In the time it takes to dish up the sauce from the skillet, you will find the cheese melted nicely on the burgers.

Now you have served a totally different meal from the original.
This is as good as what you started out with.

slave believes that being efficient and frugal with the food budget is an important part of serving.

It does NOT indicate that you are slacking off in any way. By the way, if You find for whatever reason that “serving” is not going as well as You thought it would, try this: create a small ritual. It will have all the meaning that you invest in it. Religions since the dawn of history have understood how important following a ritual is. Try this and you will be surprised at how much better everything flows.

So happy to be serving my Master Indy (and yes, slave has its rituals)

To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
..I cook!
