My cousin Ton-Ton introduced me to the cheapest, sweetest, heavenly burgers ever. Burgers made by REAL ANGELS.
Did I mention they were cheap? P32 peso cheeseburgers ($0.75 cents). No wait, its “buy one take one”… YOU GET TWO!
After that miraculous moment my cousins and I decided to make our own burgers. And after hearing about a Filipino food truck in Los Angeles making “longanisa pan de sal sliders“, we thought we’d make pork sliders made with….
…and cheese cross buns!
Ok so we weren’t using pan de sal, but buns with cheese already inside them? LET’S DO THIS!
Next thing you know our cousin Crisa comes in slapping even more beautiful cheese on top of the burgers, along with what I like to call her “Seven-thousand-and-one-island-dressing”… banana ketchup, mayonnaise, and real islands.
The pork patties started to turn red from being camera shy. OR from the pork longanisa sausages we unwrapped and smushed into the pork patties.
And that was it. Dozens of “pork longanisa cheese sliders.”
But you can’t forget the most important ingredient. My cousins.
I’ll sure miss them, but they tasted good.
Food Network needs to hook me up with Rachel Ray so we can make babies. I mean burgers.
