The Pink Burger Phenomenon: Unleashing the Power of Pink


Step right up, burger enthusiasts, and prepare to be amazed by the latest culinary sensation: the pink burger! Burger King in Brazil recently introduced the BK Barbie combo, featuring a burger with a vibrant pink hue that has captured the imagination of many. But how did they create this mesmerizing masterpiece? And can we take it even further? Join us on this fascinating journey as we uncover the secrets behind the pink sauce on the Barbie burger.

Hot Pink Buns: A Quest for Vibrancy

In our quest to create the pinkest burger possible, we must start with the buns. These aren’t just regular buns – they need to be hot pink, maybe even neon pink! To achieve this, we turn to the magical powers of beet juice. Yes, you read that right – beet juice. A trip to your local grocery store, health food store, or a fancier establishment like Whole Foods should do the trick.

Mixing the beet juice with the other ingredients, we create a dough that requires the same love and care as any other. After a one-hour rise and another hour for proofing, it’s time to bake these buns. Remember, low and quick is the key here. We want to preserve that vibrant pink color, so no browning should occur. And don’t forget the sesame seeds for that extra touch of delight!

Pink Cheese: Adding a Splash of Color

But what about the cheese? We can’t settle for just pink sauce; we need pink cheese as well! While Burger King Brazil attempted to accomplish this feat, we shall take it to new heights. Liquid magic comes in the form of beet and cherry juice. Mixed with Monterey Jack and white cheddar, along with a touch of sodium citrate, we create a symphony of pinkness.

Behold, the hot pink sliced cheese recipe! Each savory slice is a testament to the power of creativity and culinary innovation. Whether it’s the texture from the silpat or the fleeting moments of melting perfection, this cheese is sure to captivate your taste buds.

Not Very Pink Burger Sauce: Simplicity with a Twist

Now, you might be expecting another pink concoction for the burger sauce, but we’re taking a different approach. Sometimes, less is more. This delicate sauce doesn’t feature mustard or diced pickles, allowing the other vibrant elements to take center stage. Of course, if you desire a more robust sauce, we have you covered with our special sandwich sauce recipe.
