DilongPaLog, Dilis, Longanisa, Pan de sal na may itlog. Filipino inspired burgers, Longaniza patties between Pan de sal topped with Achara, fried egg and crispy fried anchovies(dilis). Achara is a Filipino Papaya salad that is lightly pickled.
These meat patties are the taste of vacations in the Philippines or when my uncle came to visit, he would make longanisa sausages. I can remember happy times in the kitchen preparing food and preparing snacks to enjoy while preparing for family dinners. Longanisa a typical Filipino breakfast sausage is often served with garlic fried rice and fried eggs sunny side up.
I made a fast food version with typical Filipino breakfast components and served the burgers with sweet potato chips, a dipping sauce made with 50/50 mayonese and Filipino banana ketchup and sago drink. This just cries out Filipino and it has a lot of texture and depth.
I used a PAN DE SAL RECIPE for my burger buns.
Unlike the spanish longanisa these are sweeter, garlic and peppery, well depending on the region of the Philippines they are from. But this is how I like my longanisa
1,5 kg coarsely ground pork
0,5 dl sugar
1 garlic bulb, minced
1 bay leaf pestle into powder
1 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp ground dried ginger
1 tsp salt
0,5 dl spiced cane vinegar(spiced Datu Puti)
Some anatto oil for color, can be dropped.
In a bowl combine all the ingredients and mix. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and put it in the fridge for about 3 day to marinate. Shape the marinated meat in to patties and fry.
Make the burgers and enjoy.
The burgers were just as yummy without the eggs and fried fish.
