The Heisenberger

Well, the day we’ve been anticipating with a mix of excitement and dread has come – the day when we must finally bid farewell to the greatest TV Show Ever in the Universe of All time: Breaking Bad. Are you hosting a viewing party or perhaps even a BBQ to mourn/celebrate while watching the finale? If so, The Savory has been kind enough to help you relax and untangle the knots in your stomachs with an epic burger recipe: The Hoisin Burger (aka The Heisenberger)!!

Sweet, tangy and spicy hoisin sauce kicks up beef patties and spices up mayo in this Breaking Bad-inspired beef burger recipe. You can make these as regular burgers or sliders for a group.

Here’s what you’ll need:

· 1lb ground beef

· ½ green onion, minced

· 2 cloves garlic, minced

· 2 teaspoons cilantro, minced

· 2 Tablespoons ginger, minced

· 1 Tablespoon hoisin sauce

· 1 teaspoon sesame oil

· 1 Tablespoon soy sauce

· Black pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients, being careful not to over-mix. Shape into patties and grill to desired done-ness. Makes 4 quarter-pound burgers. If desired, top with Marie’s Purple Slaw and chase with a couple of chilled Blue Sky Cocktails!!

Breaking Bad Blue Rock Candy
“Rock Candy Baby: Hard, Sweet and Stickeh!”

Do you love AMC’s Breaking Bad? I sure do. As we count down each weekly episode (2 down; 6 to go) to the series’ ultimate, revelatory conclusion, everyone wants to know which of their favorite characters will make it out alive (I am cheering hard for Jesse and Saul)! The waiting in suspense is excruciating, but you can make it sweeter by whipping up a batch of this Heisenberg’s Blue Rock Candy to enjoy while viewing the greatest television show ever in the universe of all time!

Candy!

Remember, Rock candy takes patience and temperature precision, so #TreadLightly. Now, let’s cook!

Heisenberg’s Blue Rock Candy Recipe

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons hard candy flavoring extract (try LorAnn flavorings – there are tons to choose from)
  • 1 drop blue gel food coloring (AmeriColor makes good quality gels)
  • You’ll need a candy thermometer
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray

Line a baking sheet with foil and spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.

In a medium saucepan, combine the water, corn syrup and granulated sugar. Place the pan over medium-high heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Bring the mixture to a boil. As soon as mixture comes to a boil, stop stirring and brush down the sides with a wet pastry brush to prevent sugar crystals from forming. Insert a candy thermometer.

Continue to cook the candy without stirring until it reads exactly 285 F (140 C) on the thermometer. *Do not overcook it, or it will start to take on a caramel color and your candy might turn green! Once the temperature hits 285, take the pan off the heat and let it sit just until bubbles stop breaking on the surface. Add the flavoring of choice and a drop of food coloring. Stir everything together.
Pour the candy onto the prepped baking sheet and tilt it so that it runs into a thin layer. Let it set completely at room temperature.

Once the candy is set, break it into small pieces by hand. For the full “crystal meth” experience, place the candy pieces in medium zip-top bags and crush them lightly with a rolling pin. Authenticity! Enjoy and remember to store any leftover Candy in airtight containers!
