Never Miss a Delicious Recipe:

X-Tudo — The Brazilian Burger on Steroids… and a $ 100 Giveaway.

America is the land of burgers… and so is Brazil!!!  Huh?  To be more specific: Brazil is the land of the X-Tudo — a hamburger on Steroids!!!!  And X-Tudo (pronounced: sheess-TOO-doo) is what I have for you today!  How about that?

X-Tudo (translated as ‘cheese-everything’) is a TALL burger with many toppings.  In fact,  x-tudo is so tall that you can’t get your mouth, no matter how big, around the whole burger. Yes, eating a x-tudo is a fun, deliciously messy experience which one must have at least once in life… It is so good that it makes every single calorie consumed worthwhile.  Just like any other burger, x-tudo is about taste — not aesthetics…

X-Tudo -- The Brazilian Burger on Steroids!!!

In Brazil, X-tudo is available at snack bars and on the streets.  There are many variations of  x-tudo e.g.: X-Caipira (sausage, egg, tomato, and onion), X-Salada (hamburger patty, cheese, lettuce, and tomato), X-Bacon (hamburger patty, cheese, bacon, lettuce, and tomato), X-Frango (chicken breast, cheese, lettuce, and tomato), etc… But my favorite is still the classic which is pretty much composed of a juicy hamburger patty, melted cheese, fried egg, deli ham, bacon, corn, lettuce, tomato, and shoestring potatoes — all sandwiched between a burger bun. 🙂  It is often eaten with mayonnaise, ketchup, and mustard.

Does it sound good to you? Well, the good news is that you don’t need to travel to Brazil to eat x-tudo.  FBTY bought it directly to you!

Have a ball eating my classic X-Tudo!

Instructions
  1. Prepare the burger patties: In a large mixing bowl, combine together the ground beef, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cumin. Mix until well incorporated. Divide the ground meat into 4 equal portions of 6 ounces each. Form each portion loosely into an approximately 3/4-inch-thick burger patty.
  2. In a large cast-iron griddle pan, spread and heat the oil until just beginning to shimmer. Cook the burger patties for about 3 minutes or until slightly charred on the first side. Then, flip over the burger patties and cook for 3 minutes or until slightly charred on the second side. Top each patty with one slice of cheese and cover the pan so cheese can melt (about 1 minute).
  3. To assemble the X-Tudo: Spread mayonnaise on the inside of the buns. Top the bottom part of the bun with one lettuce leaf, 1 tablespoon of cooked corn kernels, one slice of tomato, one burger patty with melted cheese, one fried egg, one slice of ham or salami, a sprinkle of crushed or ground black pepper, 2 strips of bacon, and shoestring potatoes. Squeeze on ketchup and deli mustard, and then top with the other half of the bun. Serve x-tudo immediately with guaraná soda or beer. Enjoy!

    I love the idea of a huge stack of fillings (though I’d have to make them veggie!)

    • Denise Browning August 10, 2013 at 8:17 am #

      I think if you make the vegetarian version of this burger, you’d love it, Rachel!

      Thanks for visiting me back, Christin! Most of time, this mayo is available on the Latin aisle of local supermarkets. I usually buy mine at a Walmart.

      Thanks, Nami! The first photo that I looked, I did not liked because it looked messy but then I told myself that’s the way that a burger should look: Messy yet delish! 🙂
