The rösti waffle - fish burger

Mmm... burger!


When life gives you a restricted diet of no wheat, alcohol, coffee, sugar or dairy - you will of course crave all of that, maybe not all of it all of the time, but mostly two of them are on my most craved list. Burger is the ultimate comfort food, and there's so much inside a burger I can not have it's depressing, not to mention the burger bun it self. BUT there is a way, and I found it. The waffle rösti solution!

Even if you're looking to make a beef burger with the works, it works wonders, however you know how to make a regular burger, so you don't need a recipe for that. That's why the fish burger is here.

I decided to crust the fish in sesame, to get some texture into the burger, since my first attempt without, was delicious - yet a little soft all over.

It's a new favorite of mine, thats for sure - and it has been tested on two nine year olds in the beef burger version and the hotdog waffle version and it's very much approved!!! Basically anything that's shaped like a waffle and called dinner is a winner dinner!


Now, let's get cooking.
