Butter Burgers are amazingly delicious and our favorite burger recipe! These butter-soaked burgers are not for the health-conscious, but they are for anyone who enjoys REALLY GOOD FOOD.
- ▢10 tablespoons salted butter softened
- ▢1 medium sweet yellow onion chopped
- ▢1 tablespoon water
- ▢¾ teaspoon kosher salt
- ▢¾ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- ▢1 pound 90% lean ground beef
- ▢4 hamburger buns toasted
- ▢1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- ▢4 slices American cheese
- In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add chopped onion, water and ¼ teaspoon salt. Cover and cook, until tender, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and remove lid. Continue to cook until onions are translucent and just beginning to brown, about 3 more minutes. Transfer onions to a plate, and divide into 4 equal portions; set onions aside until ready to use.
- Divide beef into 4 equal sized portions and gently shape each into a 4½x½-inch patty. Sprinkle both sides of the patties with salt and pepper. Refrigerate the patties 15-30 minutes.
- Spread each bun top with 2 tablespoons butter; set aside.
- Heat oil in the same skillet used for the onions until the oil begins to smoke. Use a spatula to transfer the patties to the skillet and cook 3 minutes (without moving them). Flip the patties and cook 1 more minute. Place 1 cheese slice over each patty and continue to cook until cheese is melted, about 20-30 seconds more.
- Transfer patties to the bun bottoms and place ¼ of the sautéed onions on each patty. Top each with the buttered bun tops and serve immediately.
1. Be sure to cook the onions in butter and water and then brown them.
2. Don’t skimp on buttering the bun tops. Yes, 2 tablespoons per bun top to be considered Wisconsin Butter Burgers.
3. Be sure to cook the patties a full 3 minutes before flipping them. These burgers need a good sear to get the flavorful dark brown crust.

What Dried Mushrooms Work Best in Mushroom Swiss Burgers
Any commonly found dried mushrooms work in this recipe. Many mainstream grocery stores have at least one of these varieties.
- Dried shiitakes
- Dried porcinis
- Dried morels
- Dried black trumpets
- Dried mixed mushrooms
For a good price, try an Asian market, particularly for dried shiitakes.
No Grill? No Problem. Here’s How To Pan Fry Burgers
Yes, you can add the pre-made patties to a skillet and pan fry, but follow this trick for the best pan-fried burgers.
- Preheat a heavy pan—cast iron works best—to medium high heat.
- Drizzle some olive oil in the pan.
- Instead of forming the burger patties, add balls of a quarter to a third of a pound portions of the mixture, one at a time.
- When beef starts to sizzle top it with foil and then smash the beef into a then patty using a smaller pan or skillet.
- Repeat with other portions.
- Cook as directed in Step 5, just on the stove top instead of the grill.
Note: If the pan is not large enough to cook all burgers at once, cook them in batches. Crowding the burgers in the pan will result in steaming them instead of frying them.
Perfect Sides for Mushroom Swiss Burgers
- Black Bean Salad
- Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries
- Napa Cabbage Picnic Salad
- Homemade Ginger Ale
- Caramel Brownies

Grilled Mushroom Swiss Burger
PREP TIME15 mins
COOK TIME20 mins
TOTAL TIME35 mins
SERVINGS3 to 4 servings
We call for fresh shiitake mushrooms to top the burger, but only because they are so much more flavorful than regular button mushrooms. Feel free to use whatever mushroom you want—buttons, cremini, morels, etc. You’ll need to cut the tough stems off shiitakes, but you can include the stems of other mushrooms.
Although this recipe calls for using a grill, you can easily pan fry the burgers on your stovetop. I would recommend using a large cast iron pan for pan frying.
- 1 pound ground beef (for juicy burgers, 80/20 is good)
- 1 ounce dried mushrooms, such as porcinis or morels
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, or more to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
- 1 large onion, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- Kosher salt
- 4 to 6 slices Swiss cheese
- Hamburger buns

The custardy interior and caramelised crust of a burnt Basque cheesecake create a ‘volcanic’ landscape – perfect for this Jurassic-themed dessert
Kim-JoyThu 16 Jul 2020 12.00 BST
Spanish burnt Basque cheesecakes are very popular right now as it’s one of those recipes that can’t go wrong. The custardy interior combined with the caramelised crust (yes, it’s burnt on purpose) make it irresistible. I’ve been wanting to make one for a long time, but it took me some time to think of a way to decorate it that would embrace its natural ruggedness. So here we are – a volcanic dinosaur landscape. The cheesecake itself takes minutes to mix up, and you can make your own dinosaur biscuits, buy some or use some dinosaur figurines.
Serves 8 to 10
For the cake
170g caster sugar
460g full-fat cream cheese
3 medium eggs
240g double cream
½ tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla bean paste
25g plain flour
Yellow, orange and red food dyes
For the dinosaur biscuits
Make these using your favourite ginger biscuit recipe
For the royal icing
200g icing sugar
40g egg white
Food dye (any colour of your choice)
Plus extra icing sugar and egg white to adjust to the correct consistency for piping
Heat the oven to 220C (200C fan)/425F/gas mark 7. Grease an 8-inch cake tin, then line the base and sides with one sheet of baking paper, making sure there is a two-inch overhang above the edge.
Whisk together the sugar and cream cheese until smooth, without lumps. Then add the eggs one at a time, whisking well after each addition. Add the cream, salt and vanilla, and whisk until combined. Sift in the flour and mix again, until everything is combined.
Divide the batter between three bowls and dye each one a different colour: yellow, orange and red.
Pour the red batter into the prepared tin, then pour the orange on top and right in the centre (it will merge as the batter is liquid, that’s OK), and then finally the yellow. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes until deep brown on top and still jiggly in the centre.
Let the cheesecake cool for half an hour, then remove the baking paper. Place in the fridge and leave to cool completely before serving. If you prefer, you can serve it warm and it will have a gooier centre.
To make the dinosaur biscuits, use ginger biscuits – either using your own favourite recipe or store bought – and shape using dinosaur cutters. Whisk together the icing sugar and egg white, add food dye and transfer to a piping bag. Use this to decorate the biscuits.
Decorate the cheesecake with dinosaur biscuits just before serving, to go with the reveal of the ombré red centre.

Sweet Kale Smoothie Recipe
This sweet and creamy kale smoothie recipe is our kids’ favorite.
No ratings yet
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 2 servings
- 4-5 cubes frozen mango
- 1/2 banana – frozen or fresh
- 1/3 cup Greek plain yogurt or vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 cup apple juice
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 – 1 cup frozen kale
- 1/4 avocado – frozen or fresh
- Add ingredients to blender
- Blend very well – until smooth, with no visible pieces of kale
- 1-2 lbs. Chilean sea bass filets (can substitute with another ocean-based, white meat fish such as sea bass, tile fish, or halibut (which is what was in my freezer and used this time around))
- 1/2 cup pan-searing flour*
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 eggs (optional- coat your filets in egg before covering them in flour for a thicker crust)
- *mix your own pan-searing flour by combining:
- 1/2 cup flour (Gold Medal Wondra Flour works the best since it doesn’t clump)
- 2.5 teaspoons salt (finely ground sea salt, if you have it on hand, works well)
- 1.5 teaspoons white pepper.
- Optional -add in 1 teaspoon of basil, cumin, or paprika depending upon your palette and tastes. I did not include it this time.
1. Lightly rinse your filets then soak in a salted ice bath for 20-30 minutes.
2. Lightly rinse your filets again and then pat dry excess water.
3. Coat each filet in the searing flour using a bag or bowl.
4. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat for a couple of minutes and add your butter and olive oil. If a drop of water instantly snaps and pops when hitting your pan (please exercise caution!), then everything is sufficiently hot for cooking. -This is very important…too hot and your oil will start to burn, too cool and your fish will be mushy. The correct temperature will yield a filet that has a crisp crust but a moist, flaky interior.
5. Add a filet to the pan. Optional- tilt the pan slightly and continuously pour the oil/butter mixture over the filet with a spoon as it cooks. Pan sear for roughly 5-7 minutes, until the bottom browns nicely.
6. Flip the filet and cook the other side until is browns (roughly 3-4 minutes).
7. Repeat with remaining filets and serve with your favorite sides. I’d recommend a bed of couscous and some grilled asparagus as nice pairings.

Jurassic Park: Chilean Sea Bass
Feast of Starlight
Jurassic Park: Chilean Sea Bass
PREP TIME20 mins
COOK TIME20 mins
TOTAL TIME40 mins
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter
- 3 shallots minced
- 4 sprigs thyme
- 1/2 cup chopped red bell peppers
- 4 tbsp white wine
- 1/4 cup chicken stock
- 2-3 tbsp cream
- salt and pepper
- 15 oz chilean sea bass steak or 4 fillets/4oz each
- all purpose flour for dusting
- 1 bunch green beans cleaned
- 2 medium carrots peeled
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp honey
- Shred peeled carrots with a shredder or with a knife. You can easily do this by first peeling the carrots with a peeler, stack, and then slice it thinly with your knife. Toss with lemon juice, olive oil, and honey. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside. For more acid, feel free to add 1 tbsp of dijon mustard.
- In a sauce pan, add your oil, butter, thyme, and shallots on medium heat. Saute until soft and then add chopped peppers. Cook for 5 minutes and then add the white wine and cook for 1 minute. Add the chicken stock. Cook for another 3-5 minutes on medium high heat and add cream to finish. Season with salt and pepper. Take out the stalk of the thyme out and set aside.
- Bring a pot of water to a boil. Blanch your green beans for a 3-4 minutes until tender. Shock in ice bath to stop the cooking. Drain and season. Set aside.
- Heat a large pan over medium high heat. Add enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Season the sea bass with salt and pepper. Lightly dust with all purpose flour. Once the pan is hot, carefully lay it down in the hot pan. Depending on the thickness of your fish, the time will vary. Turn the fish after cooking it for approximately 3-4 minutes on each side. The fish should be golden and firm to the touch. Let it rest before slicing it.
- Arrange the sauce on the bottom of the plate with the fish and beans beautifully layered on top. Finish with the carrot salad. A great substitute would be some fried sweet potatoes.
Dinosaur Party Food: Dino DNA Jurassic Amber

Dinosaur Party Food
Kids love dinosaurs, so birthday parties with dinosaur party food are always fun!
These treats are great for parties or anytime your kids need some dinosaur inspired fun.
How did the scientists in the first Jurassic Park movie create dinosaurs?
Kids know that they extracted the dinosaur DNA from prehistoric insects that had been become trapped in amber.
The Jurassic Amber Treats are easy to make, tasty and fun to eat.
Dinosaur Party Food – Dino DNA Jurassic Amber Treats
[Advertisement] Your video will begin shortly
Instead of real insects trapped in amber, there are bits of dried fruit suspended in gelatin jigglers.
If you’ve got kids who like to help in the kitchen, this is a fun activity to do together.
Otherwise, you can just surprise them with the super fun dinosaur snack.
Jurassic Amber Treats with Dinosaur DNA
1 3/4 cups Hot Water
1 T Dried Fruit (tart cherries, raisins, blueberries…), chopped
Put gelatin mix in a bowl.
Bring water to a boil and then add to the gelatin. Stir until gelatin is dissolved.
Pour hot jello into an ice cube tray. Refrigerate for about an hour until partially set.

Serve and enjoy!
Jurassic Pork Soup
From the Chrono Trigger video game
I just can’t resist a Jurassic Park pun, even if it only exists because of censorship. So, I recently did a bit of a nostalgia play of Chrono Trigger, a classic game with a killer soundtrack that’s considered by many to be one of the best video RPGs of all time. At some point in the game, Crono and Marle attend a feast in Ioka village. At the feast, you can challenge the leader, Ayla, to a soup eating contest. In the original Japnese version of the game, the soup was actually an alcoholic drink but the dialogue was changed to turn the cocktail into soup in the English translation, because what about the children. Why do I know this? Because I stumbled on this info while researching cocktails for my upcoming cocktail book, Geeky Chef Drinks! It’s going to be so great, guys, I’m super proud of it. But back to the soup! You can also eat a big bowl of poi in this part of the game, so I stuck to a Hawaiian theme. Saimin is the Hawaiian version of ramen (with other Asian influences). There are a ton of saiman eating contests, so this seemed super appropriate. This is a take on pork saimin complimented by a “dinosaur egg” topping.
1lb Pork Shoulder
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
1 cup Char Siu Sauce (pre-made or using this recipe)
1 Yellow Onion, chopped
4 cloves of Garlic, minced
1/2 inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
2.5 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 leek, halved lengthwise and coarsely chopped
1 cup Baby Bok Choy
1/2 cup Cremini Mushrooms, brushed clean and coarsely chopped
Low-sodium soy sauce, for seasoning
Sesame and/or chile oil, for seasoning
3/4 lb fresh Saiman or Ramen noodles
2 large Eggs, medium-boiled
1 Green Onion, chopped
Suggested Extra Toppings:
Sliced Boiled Fish Cakes
1) Season the pork with salt and pepper and place in a large plastic bag with 3/4 cups of char siu sauce. Let marinate for a couple hours.2) Pre-heat oven to 400 degree F
3) Place the pork piece on grill and with a layered baking tray on middle rack and bake for 10 minutes.
4) Remove the pork and brush with remaining sauce. Roast on middle track for another 10 minutes, then move the grill to up to the top rack and roast for another couple of minutes. Transfer out and let rest for 3-4 minutes, then cut the pork into slices and set aside.
4) In a frying pan, add the yellow onion and sear, without stirring, until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic, ginger, and a cup of the broth.
5) Deglaze the pan, stirring and scraping up any browned bits from the insert bottom, then let simmer for a couple minutes
6) Transfer the contents of the pan to a dutch oven, add the leek, mushrooms, bok choy, and the remaining broth. Stir to combine.
7) Cover and simmer over low heat on the stove for about 30 minutes or until the bok choy is softened and flavors are mingled.
8) Season the broth to taste with soy sauce and sesame and/or chile oil. Continue to simmer for another 10 minutes
9) Cook the noodles according to the package directions.
10) Divide the noodles evenly among individual bowls, then ladle the broth over the noodles, dividing evenly.
11) Arrange the pork slices on top of the noodles and sprinkle with the green onions and top each with two egg halves.
12) Add any additional toppings you like (suggestions above) and serve with a huge side of poi (if you want).

Jurassic World Mini Volcano Bundt Cakes Recipe
Yields: 24 servings (approximately, depending on the mix used)
Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes (not including cooling time)
Jurassic World Mini Volcano Bundt Cakes – Ingredients:
- Your favorite chocolate cake mix – if using a boxed cake mix, check for the ingredients needed.
- Red icing
- Jolly Rancher hard candy
Jurassic World Mini Volcano Bundt Cakes – Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (check your packet mix or recipe for oven temperature required). Spray a mini bundt pan with cooking spray and set aside.
Prepare your chocolate cake mix according to the package (or recipe) directions, and pour into the mini bundt pan spaces only filling each to about 3/4 full so that when they rise they don’t spill over.
Bake for approximately 14 minutes, but again, check your recipe or package mix instructions. Mine said 14-19 minutes but they only took 14 minutes. Once baked, remove from the oven and set aside to cool before carefully removing each cake from the cake pan.
Did you know that you can put tubs of icing into the microwave for 30 seconds so they aren’t so stiff? Well you can and this is perfect for making lava flowing over the side of the mini chocolate bundt cakes.
Simply transfer your icing once heated a little into a plastic squeeze bottle, and then squeeze gently around the top of each bundt cake in a circle allowing it to overflow down the sides a little.
In separate saucepans over low heat, melt your hard candies. It will take time, but you don’t want to burn the candy by putting the heat up high. Once the candy is melted, quickly pour it onto parchment paper and pop it into the freezer for about 10 minutes.
These fun treats will be perfect for a Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom movie night with family and friends.

Get your ROAR on with this prehistoric dinosaur milkshake recipe!
PREP TIME10 minutes
TOTAL TIME10 minutes
- 1/2 C whole milk
- 3 C chocolate ice cream
- 1 tsp. Chocolate syrup
- 1 container of chocolate frosting
- 2 C crushed oreos
- 1 can of whipped cream
Decorating props used:
- 1 chocolate doughnut with chocolate frosting and blue drizzle
- 1/2 lb chocolate coated candy rocks (Found at any candy store)
- Little Debbie Peanut Butter HoHo’s
- Green Apple Lace’s (Candy Grass)
- Bamboo Sticks
- Using a bamboo stick, cut 1/4 of the flat end off and push the pointy end through the bottom half of the doughnut. This will help hold up your doughnut on the shake.
- Do the same thing with the bamboo sticks to two HoHo’s.
Using a butterknife, spread frosting about 2 inches thick around the top of the glass.
- Roll the frosting part of the glass in the crushed Oreo’s for a dirt look.
- Place a few of the candy rocks in the dirt.
- Set aside while you make your shake.
- Milkshake directions: Combine the milk, chocolate ice cream, and chocolate syrup in a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour the milkshake into the glass about 3/4 way full and then place in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to chill. This allows for a firmer top layer to hold the candy decorations.
- Decorating Directions: Once the 5-10 minutes is up, pull out your shake.
