Christmas burger

The closest I come a translation for this burger is sausage burger, in Norway I would call it medisterburger. The english breakfast sausage is quite similar to the medisterpølse in taste, the difference is that medister today is made of very finely ground meat and fat.
During Christmas one tend to eat the same traditional food quite often. In this burger I have combined tastes that is typical for christmas in Norway. Nothing wrong with eating the same thing often, but sometimes it can be a little nice to do a little twist on the traditional.
I have two teenage boys so I feel that I have to give them some “dude food” once in a while.
