This burger takes everything you thought you knew about umami and doubles it. Think: flavorful, rich patties, topped with the most over-the-top umami ketchup. Oh, and did we mention the aged cheddar cheese, melted on top? Better make that "triples it."

Ingredients

For the umami ketchup

  • 4 tbsps ketchup
  • 2 tsps Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsps mellow (sweet) white miso
  • 1/2 tsp sugar

For the umami burgers

  • 1 ½ pounds (680g) ground beef
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ¼ onion, minced
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 1 cup cubed bread (I used one small Martin's Whole Wheat Potato Bun)
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ recipe of umami ketchup (see above)
  • 1 small bunch watercress
  • 6 slices aged cheddar, grated Parmigiano, crumbled gorgonzola, Stilton, or sliced American cheese (or 4 if making larger patties)
  • 6 large hamburger buns (or 4 if making larger patties)
