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!

An outrageously delicious, tall burger with many, many toppings...
Author:
Recipe type: Sandwich
Cuisine: Brazilian
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1½ pounds ground chuck (80 percent lean)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¾ teaspoon granulated garlic powder
  • A good pinch of cumin
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns, split and toasted, if desired
  • Mayonnaise ( I like to use Hellman's lime mayonnaise)
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 4 tablespoons of steamed corn kernels
  • 4 large slices of tomato
  • 4 fried eggs
  • 4 slices of deli ham or hard salami (I used hard salami on mine)
  • 8 strips of smoked bacon, cooked
  • Shoestring potatoes
  • Ketchup and either deli or Dijon mustard
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 ¾-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!

      Thanks, Daniela! That’s the idea…Although I confess that no words can compare to devouring this burger!

  7. Paula @ Vintage Kitchen Notes August 8, 2013 at 8:01 pm #

    A good burger should be huge and drip! This is gorgeous Denise!

  8. Deb August 8, 2013 at 8:28 pm #

    Amazing! My husband would adore this robust burger! A fantastic summer treat just in time for firing up the grill!

    • Denise Browning August 8, 2013 at 9:39 pm #

      Thanks, Deb! My husband ate it a few days ago for the first time and got hooked.

    I may have to go back to meat…

  10. Shashi @ http://runninsrilankan.com August 9, 2013 at 6:57 am #

    I am not a meat eater – but these burgers look great!!!!

    • Denise Browning August 9, 2013 at 8:11 am #

      Although you are not a meat eater, I am glad that you liked it, Shashi!

  11. Kate@Diethood August 9, 2013 at 9:09 am #

    I would LOVE to sink my teeth into this tuxedo! I mean X-TUDO!!! ;-D (I really read it as tuxedo the first time I saw the title…no, I don’t wear glasses or contacts :-)) But, really, this looks like one of those, “my last meal would be a x-tudo” … DELISH!

    • Denise Browning August 9, 2013 at 9:55 am #

      LOL…Thanks so much, Kate! I always loved X-Tudo –“Tuxedo” :)– and my hubby became a big fan of it…I hope you have the chance to make it one of these days. The thing is addictive!

  12. Abbe August 9, 2013 at 10:04 am #

    Wow, Denise – just shown my hubby your burger recipe and guess what he’s demanded for dinner tomorrow night?!? Can’t believe I’ve only just made it over here, you have a fantatsic blog 🙂 xx

    • Denise Browning August 9, 2013 at 10:25 am #

      Thanks so much, Abbe! I hope your husband enjoys this burger as much as my hubby did. If your husband likes spicy food, please add 1/2 chopped jalapeno to the burger patty recipe. I hope you return to give me your/his feedback!!!! Have a great weekend!!!!!!

    This is a very, very big burger…!!! And I can imagine having it for lunch, delicious…!!!

  14. Rachel Cotterill August 10, 2013 at 2:14 am #

    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!

  15. Raymund August 11, 2013 at 3:19 am #

    Look at all those melting cheese, yum!

    • Denise Browning August 11, 2013 at 7:43 am #

      It is exactly what makes any burger more delicious… 😉

  16. Christin@SpicySouthernKitchen August 12, 2013 at 6:46 am #

    Looks so fabulous! Love all the toppings you have used. For me a burger is all about what goes on it. Have never seen Lime Hellman’s Mayo before. Must try and track that down!

    • Denise Browning August 12, 2013 at 1:22 pm #

      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.

  17. Nik@ABrownTable August 12, 2013 at 3:26 pm #

    Delish! Love the juiciness of the burgers!

  18. Sugar et al August 14, 2013 at 9:43 pm #

    Oh my my…my mouth is watering at the sight of this burger. Simply gorgeous! Look at all the cheese oozing out…I want this right now!

  19. Nami | Just One Cookbook August 15, 2013 at 1:33 am #

    I’m serious I just drop drool on my laptop! One of the best looking burgers, Denise!

    • Denise Browning August 15, 2013 at 8:36 am #

      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! 🙂
