iPhone fans: if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably wondered if there isn’t someway you could enjoy your favorite smartphone in delicious hamburger form.
When I purchased a clear plastic iPhone cover at the 100 yen shop the other day, it hit me that this just might be the key to making that dream a reality.
I have recorded the recipe I used below. Feel free to use it as a guide when attempting to perfect your own smartburger.
1、Carve out an Apple logo in the back of one plastic iPhone case.
2、Cleane the iPhone case thoroughly.
3、Stuff the case with hamburger mixture.
4、Put case in microwave and heat for 1 minute.
5、The hamburger mixture in the case should shrink from loss of moisture. Stuff more mixture into the case.
6、Repeat steps 4 & 5 twice more, until the case can no longer hold additional mixture.
7、Finally, remove the hamburger from the case and fry it until it becomes brown.
I learned that repeating steps 4 & 5 is of critical importance. If you do not pack the iPhone case full, the hamburger will fall apart when you attempt to take it out of the case.
Even still, I had trouble making the hamburger look as sleek and smooth as an iPhone—but the taste left nothing to be desired!
I decided that I would present the iPhone hamburger to my 5 year old daughter, who I figured would get a kick out of it as she enjoys fiddling around with my iPhone when I’m not using it.
However, when I placed the blocky burger in front of her she showed no trace of interest and proceeded to pick apart the burger silently.
Hrm. It seems the technology was too much for her infant mind to comprehend.
Even the iPhone hamburger wasn’t the crowd-pleaser I had hoped it would be, the enjoyment I got from making it was totally worth it! Why not try grilling-up a smartburger for yourself?
