I created the Kitchen Bouquet hamburger patty recipe. From my youth, I remember a kitchen product called Kitchen Bouquet®. It’s a browning and seasoning sauce. Since the HOTLOGIC® doesn’t brown the meat, I thought it might make an attractive and tasty burger even without the Maillard Reaction (Browning).
I am pleased with how the patty turned out. This hamburger is a juicy patty to put on your hamburger bun. The burger looks like it was cooked in a conventional oven. If you still desire the Maillard reaction, you can use a chef torch to add the finishing touch.
In the picture above I show a comparison of burgers made three different ways in a HOTLOGIC®. The one on the left was plain ground beef made with garlic salt and onion powder. In the center is the Worcestershire Sauce Hamburger. On the right is the Kitchen Bouquet Hamburger. All of them had 1/4 pound of ground beef and were cooked for 4 hours. Although they were fully cooked an hour or so earlier. All of them tasted delicious.
