the moomies bun recipe from last week? Recognize anything in this photo? You guessed it, moomies buns make excellent dinner rolls and burger patties!  I mixed ground beef with feta cheese and herbs and shaped it into patties.  I sauteed vegetables to top the sliders. In my quest to bring new insight to my readers culinary aspirations,  I tried a new vegetable, unbeknownst to yours truly.

Meet the bitter melon.Bitter Melon

Like all people who don’t know what they are cooking I googled it.  Wiser people than me that live on the Internet suggest I boil the bitter melon first before cooking it to reduce its pungency. I thought I’d just cook it so I have a better understanding of what it tastes like  I should not have done this.  I should have listened to Google.

Fortunately, I sauteed the bitter melon with other vegetables that were edible.  Needless to say, I ended up picking off all the bitter melon from the burger, which suddenly became delicious! 

I toasted the buns before serving the patties on top.

I made feta mashed potatoes to accompany the sliders!  I peeled and chopped red potatoes, and boiled them until soft.  I mashed the potatoes with feta and cheese (based on your preference).

Even though it didn’t turn out quite what I expected, at least I learn something new.  Don’t buy bitter melon, don’t cook bitter melon and don’t eat bitter melon.  Everything else gets four stars!
