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.


  • Ground beef with a 20/80 fat to meat ratio
  • Salt and pepper
  • Slices of young Gouda cheese
  • Tomatoes
  • Onions
  • Pickled Jalapeño
  • Soft burger buns

For the Dutch burger sauce

  • 1/4 cup of mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp of coarse mustard
  • 2 tbsp of sliced shallots
  • 2 tbsp of chopped pickles

For the Rocky Mountain Oysters (if you dare)

  • Bull testicles
  • 1 litre of water
  • 60 grams of salt
  • Butter
  • Lemon/pepper dry rub

How to

  1. The day before you want to make the burgers, you brine the testicles in a litre of water and 60 grams of salt. Let this sit in the fridge for 24 hours.
  2. After that, cook the meatballs in boiling water for 50 minutes, so the skin comes loose.
  3. Let the balls cool down before cutting them into slices.
  4. 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.
  5. Mix the ingredients for the burger sauce and slice the tomato and onions.
  6. Sprinkle some lemon/pepper rub on the slices of testicles and fry them in butter until they crispen at the sides.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. If you still like to, top it with a few slices of Rocky Mountain oysters and hide them with the crown of the bun.
