Sesame seed bagels – For that better than burger taste!
Cheese – You decide what type… I suggest cheddar, not that rubbish orange stuff.
Beef Burgers – My mum went for the Monterey jack cheddar and Jalapeno variety…which I later decided was the pimpingest burger … like ever.
The teeniest piece of lettuce ever,
Some alphabet shape cutters and/or a knife,
And of course… one cherry tomato who was too shy to make an appearance in the group photo.
This mini pimp popped into my head the morning of this feat of engineering when I looked at a very small piece of bagel which I had nibbled into a circle (don’t ask why) and realised how burger-esque it looked. “BLIMEY, I could make a mini burger” I proclaimed to my mum who wasn’t really listening. I then went to school and when I came home good old mum (not old…just a figure of speech… honest) announced she bought burgers! My eyes lit up. Apparently I win at subliminal messaging.
I forced her to cook the burgers ASAP so that I could have a bash at a mini pimpage! On rummaging through the cupboards for a circular cookie cutter I was extremely excited when I found alphabet shaped cutters!(well… mum did.) The word PIMP shot into my head, and I immediately toasted a bagel.
Toast the bagel much lighter than I did in order to make cutting easier, and make sure your “I” is much less thin than mine. It helps later, trust me.
Attempt to cut out the letters from your now crispy (but less crispy than mine) bagel making sure you cut each letter twice, once from the sesame part of the bagel (for the top of the burger) and once from the bottom.
Take a break to take fantastic pictures of mumsy-wumsy (A.K.A mum) majestically flipping the beautiful, greasy burgers.
Finish cutting the word out of the bagel. View the imprints of the letters which have left burning imprints in your hand and then arrange the bagel and letters for a beautiful picture.
