Mini Boeuf Bourguignon burgers – homemade poppy + sesame seed buns filled with classic French Boeuf Bourguignon.
We spent the last week in Normandy eating, drinking and being merry. It was a wonderful + festive Christmas celebration. We are back in Paris enjoying a few days before we head to Amiens for New Year’s. I just love this time of year!
What happens when you mix classic French Boeuf Bourguignon and homemade wholewheat poppy and sesame seed buns? These little bites of Heaven. We love this recipe because it’s delicious and the perfect combination of US + French cooking traditions : burgers + Boeuf Bourguignon!
We also love cooking in miniature. Somehow making something bite-size makes it even more special. Who’s with me? These mini Boeuf Bourguigon burgers are perfect as an appetizer or as a main course.
We suggest you make a big batch of classic French Boeuf Bourguignon, eat it for dinner and then make these mini Boeuf Bourguignon burgers the next day. You will be happy you did!
We have been munching on these babies while preparing some really exciting content that we will be bringing to you in January! We are putting together a “Postcards from Paris” project especially for you. When you sign up for free on our site, we will send you an email every day for 10 days. You will receive a series of photos from a different neighborhood in Paris as well our favorite food experiences to have in each neighborhood and a related recipe link so that you can make some yummy French eats at home. We love the idea of sending a little bit of our Paris to you, delivered straight into your inbox every day for 10 days! We are having so much fun putting this project together for you and we are really excited to share it with you at the end of next week!
