The Donald not so Trump burger


As a foodblogger you follow other food related accounts to get inspiration from. Sam's account is one of them. We've been follow and commenting on each others posts for a little over a year now. It crossed my mind a couple of times to meet up for a kitchen collaboration. So when I got the idea to make a burger with a statement I simply asked Sam if he was interested to work with me on this one. For a few different reasons, I believe in working together. I believe in learning from other people. I like to meet openminded and creative people. I believe the strength of bonding and to share the love for food with each other.


The reasons why we made this...


This is so much more than just a burger.
This is something to make you think, every single bite you take.

You may wonder why we made this burger and what exactly it symbolizes. Well, let me tell you.

Food is something everybody loves. There’s no way to deny that. Especially when it comes to burgers.

That’s why we made a burger with influences & flavours from almost every continent on this planet. Why? Because there’s not a single person in the world that has only eaten food from their own culture or country.

We indulge on food from all over the world, simply because there are so many flavours to enjoy. You probably won’t like every single flavour, but you don’t have to. That’s normal. We all have our own preferences.

Now lets take that to another level. Let's put this topic in a humane point of view. There are thousands of different flavours, there are thousands of different ethnicities. So what’s the deal with racism? Just like we’re open to discover foods and flavours from other countries, we are made to discover new people, new cultures.

Why dislike a colour, a race, a certain type of food or a language? Some flavours we simply have to discover or learn how to eat them. It may even take a couple of times before we actually understand how to enjoy every aspect of it. It takes time to understand and get to know a certain type of food. And you know what? The same goes for every single person we meet. We are all different; we are all unique in our own way. We can’t simply judge by the first sight of it. It just doesn’t do it justice. There is always more beneath the surface.


The country you were born in or the colour of your skin doesn’t define who you truly are – it’s only the place you were born. Forget those boundaries. We are here to discover the world. We’re meant to travel across the planet because it’s a place for everyone, just like food is meant for everyone to enjoy. Without it, we would be nothing and would simply not exist – we need this world as much we need food. And, most importantly, we need it all together, equally.

Even though some people may act like they deserve more than someone else, there truly is not a single person in this world which has more rights than another person. If we don’t start acting accordingly right now, when will we? There might be some people who think differently and act like they have more rights than certain ethnicities. And we are here to make you aware of the fact that we don’t have to follow those examples. Just because some people have a bigger mouth than others, doesn’t mean they have more rights than anybody else.

That’s exactly why we made this huge burger, filled with flavours from all over the world. This burger is just big enough to fill the enormous mouths of those who don’t know how to enjoy those precious flavours ;) Those shortsighted people make this world bitter, and what’s destroying the planet bit by bit.  We’d like to invite those particular people to make this burger. Taste the world and rethink everything they’ve said and done, bite by bite. Let’s appreciate every single flavour and make this world better instead of bitter.



And its true some people are crazy in this world, say stupid things or do horrible things. There is a lot of crazy shit going on right now. And we can talk to each other about those stupid things spreading more negativity in this world. Or we talk about positive things, beautiful things, be nice to one another. It's a choice you make. If we see and talk about all the bad things going On in tis world it will never get any better. 

To those who can hear me, I say, do not despair
The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed
The bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress
The hate of men will pass, and dictators die
And the power they took from the people will return to the people
And so long as men die, liberty will never perish
Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men
Machine men with machine minds and machine hearts!
You are not machines, you are not cattle, you are men!
You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful
To make this life a wonderful adventure
Let us use that power!
Let us all unite!

- Charlie Chaplin


Think about this, let it sink in..... 

And maybe it will let you rethink certain things you did or said. Maybe you will smile at stranger more often, help those around you, do things differently. Share this with the world, we all want a better place, for our selfs, the ones we love and those in need. But we can only come to that if we start with our selfs, we are the change we all want to see in the world.

Slice the burger buns in to halves. Use the other
 Mix all the the ingredients for patty 1 together, patty 2 the same, patty 3 the same and patty 4 the same
Now shape some beautiful burgers. Put them a side and let them rest
Now make all the salads for each burger
Heat up a (grill) pan and add a bit of sunfloweroil
Place the burgers into the pan and bake them 3-4 minutes a side
When the burgers are almost done, add a slice of cheese on top of The AmricanBurger 1. Turn the fire to low and let the burgers cook for another 2 minutes
Get your burgers out of the pan and let them rest.
Heat up another pan to bake the bacon and fry the egg

Now comes the hardest part

Its time to assemble your  burger.


Slice the buns
With every burger comes a salad/sidedish
Start of by placing the matching side dish on the bottom of the bun and then add the burger. And go on with the rest
For instance, place the coleslaw on the bottom bun, add the American burger put the egg and the bacon on it
Now add another bottom bun ontop and add the Mexican salsa and then the Mexican buger.
