Saute the shallots with 1oz of butter adding as well all of the herbs, season with to taste with salt and pepper. Mix the shallots together with the ground veal also adding bread crumbs and cream, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.

Shape the burger paddies , you will need double the amount of paddies for the number of burgers that you wish to make, each with 1oz. Put a piece of butter (0,70oz) between 2 paddies and press them sealing the butter inside.

When the burgers are shaped pass them trough a standard breading procedure in which you are passing the burgers trough the flour first, then egg wash and then bread crumbs.

After completing refrigerate the breaded burgers.

When cooking brown the burgers on a sauté pan with some oil so it wont stick, after placing them burgers on a sheet pan and baking them at 325f for about 15 to 20 min, enough time to cook the meat and for the butter to melt away from the center of the burger. The pocket inside the burger is to be filled with mushroom ketchup using a piping bag, Cover the hole with aciago cheese slice and put it in the oven for a few minutes so it can melt

Start by melting the butter and mixing the yeast with room temperature Steam Whistle Pilsner, after the yeast has bloomed you can mix all the liquids together (honey, egg, beer, melted butter).

Once everything is well mixed you will need to work the doe to develop a certain degree of gluten, after you will proof the doe in a covered pan until it doubles it size.

After the doe has proofed divide it in to 1,5oz buns that you will brush with some egg wash and bake in an oven at 350f for about 15 to 20 minutes.
