Rocky Mountain burgers

We made an amazing burger with a special ingredient. And only because you kept asking us if we had tried it. The special ingredient is bull testicles. Or Rocky Mountain oysters, as they are called in Canada.
I wouldn’t say I like to give in when challenged, so I made a burger with it before I dared to eat it. shared sorrow is half the sorrow, so I let Morrison eat along.

  • 1 kg ground beef 20/80 fat to meat ratio
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp pepper
  • 8 slices Gouda cheese young
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 3 Jalapenos pickled
  • 2 burger buns soft

Dutch burger buns

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp coarse mustard
  • 2 tbsp shallots sliced
  • 2 tbsp pickles chopped

Rocky Mountain Oysters (if you dare)

  • 2 Bull testicles
  • 1 Liter water
  • 60 grams salt
  • 50 grams butter
  • 1 tbsp lemon/pepper dry rub


  • The day before you want to make the burgers, you brine the testicles in a liter of water and 60 grams of salt. Let this sit in the fridge for 24 hours.
  • After that, cook the meatballs in boiling water for 50 minutes, so the skin comes loose.
  • Let the balls cool down before cutting them into slices.
  • Make patties of the ground beef about a quarter-inch thick and a little bit bigger than the hamburger buns. Make 2 patties per bun.
  • Mix the ingredients for the burger sauce and slice the tomato and onions.
  • Sprinkle some lemon/pepper rub on the slices of testicles and fry them in butter until they crispen at the sides.
  • Cook the burgers on a cast iron plate. When you flip them the last time, sprinkle on some salt and pepper and let the slices of cheese melt on the pattie.
  • Put two patties on top of each other and place them on the heel of the bun. Then add a tablespoon of Dutch burger sauce, slices of tomato, onion rings and pickled jalapeño.
  • If you still like to, top it with a few slices of Rocky Mountain oysters and hide them with the crown of the bun.
