1 Home-made buns

Warm the milk in a small saucepan (no more than 40°C).
Dissolve the yeast in the warm milk with the sugar.
Add the flour and salt to a mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer and mix.
Add the beaten egg and the milk/yeast/sugar mixture.
Knead for around ten minutes.
Add the butter and knead again.

Prove the dough for 1-1.5 hours a warm place (25 to 30°C) away from drafts: it should double in volume.

Divide the dough into 6 pieces weighing approximately 150 g and form 6 balls.
Place them on a baking sheet, spacing them well apart.
Brush with milk, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and flatten slightly.
Cover with a tea towel and let rise for 30 minutes.

Pre-heat the oven to 240°C. Lower the oven temperature to 180°C and bake for 15 minutes in the lower part of the oven.

2 Balsamic vinegar ketchup

Peel, trim and finely chop the garlic.
In a saucepan, brown the garlic in the oil.
Add the tomatoes, sugar, balsamic vinegar and Herbes de Provence.
Cook over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring regularly.
Let cool before serving.

3 Onion marmalade

Peel the onions, cut them in half and thinly slice them.
In a hot oiled pan, sweat the onions until they turn translucent.
Add the sugar and continue cooking over low heat, stirring occasionally until they are browned.
Set aside.

4 White sauce

In a bowl, combine the Greek yogurt and crème fraîche with the mustard.
Finely chop the pickles and add them to the sauce.
Add salt and pepper.

5 Burger

Preheat the oven to 210° on the grill setting.

Cut the buns in half and place them on a baking sheet, cut side up.
Form the steak mince into 6 balls and flatten them.
Heat a pan and brown the bacon.
In another pan, cook the burgers then add 2 slices of Raclette on top.
Put under the grill alongside the buns, letting the cheese melt.

Assemble the burgers: coat the bottom half of the bun with white sauce, cover with onion marmalade, add a burger with the melted Raclette, garnish with 2 slices of bacon, and finish with the top half of the bun spread with ketchup.

Serve immediately with chips and balsamic vinegar ketchup!
