• Teriyaki Chicken Burgers

    Recipe adapted from Pinch of Yum.



    • 1 lb. ground chicken
    • 1/4 c. teriyaki sauce
    • 1/2 c. panko breadcrumbs
    • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
    • 1/2 tsp. salt, optional

    Sesame Slaw:

    • 4 c. shredded cabbage
    • 2 TBSP toasted sesame oil
    • 2 TBSP rice vinegar
    • 2 tsp. sugar
    • 1 tsp. salt
    • 1/2 c. chopped green onions


    • 2 TBSP avocado oil for frying
    • 4 brioche buns
    • Yum yum sauce (or mayo, sriracha, chili crisp, whatever sauce you like)


    1. Make the Sesame Slaw: Toss the slaw ingredients together. Taste and adjust.
    2. Make the Burgers: Combine chicken, teriyaki sauce, panko, salt, and garlic powder in a large bowl. Mix with your (clean) hands until well-combined. Form into 4 large patties.
    3. Fry the Burgers: Heat a bit of avocado oil over medium heat. Add the burgers to the hot pan and cook for 3-5 minutes until golden and mostly cooked through; flip to finish for another 2-3 minutes. Cook until no longer pink in the middle, or a meat thermometer registers at least 165F.
    4. Toast Buns:  Wipe out the skillet if there are burned bits left in the pan. Pop your buns into the skillet for just a second, cut side down over medium low heat, to get them lightly toasted.
    5. Assemble Burgers: Spread top and bottom buns with yum yum sauce, place a burger, and top with the sesame slaw. Press burgers together, slice into it, and enjoy your life. I love these so much.

  • No-Knead Soft Sourdough Sandwich Bread

    Recipe adapted from the Feathered Nester.


    • 65 g. sourdough starter active and bubbly (fed within 12-24 hours)
    • 300 g. warm water, filtered (95º-100º F)
    • 45 – 56 g. honey
    • 500 g. bread flour (or 75 g. whole wheat and 425 g. bread flour)
    • 20 g. olive oil
    • 9 g. sea salt

    Sample Timing:

    • 8-9am feed starter
    • 8-9pm mix up dough
    • Overnight rise for 8-10 hours
    • Shape dough
    • Let dough rise until doubled
    • Bake


    1. Add the starter to a large bowl. Mix in warm water and honey, stirring until dissolved. Add bread flour, oil, and salt. Stir with a dough whisk or wooden spoon until a thick, shaggy dough forms.
    2. Flour your hands, and finish mixing dough by hand until most of the flour has been absorbed. Don’t worry if there is flour on the sides or bottom of the bowl. Cover with a plate, and let the dough rest for 30-45 minutes.
    3. After the 30-45 minutes, stretch and fold the dough by stretching 4 inches then pushing it down the middle and turning 1/4 until you make a circle; then cover the bowl with a plate, and let rise at room temperature overnight (at least 8-10 hours) until double in size. (Note: If you don’t have time to finish the process, once the dough has doubled, you can refrigerate until you are ready to finish the process below).
    4. In the morning, lightly flour your counter top. Remove the dough from the bowl, gently stretching it into a rectangle, then your fingers to dimple the rough to release the air from the dough. Roll up dough into a log shape. Cover and let the dough rest 10 minutes.
    5. Spray bread pan with cooking spray. Tighten the dough log by gently pulling it towards you along the counter top for 5-8 inches. Place it in your loaf pan, seam side down. Cover and let rise until dough has doubled in size (anywhere from 3-6 hour +/-). Press the corner edge of the dough in 1/2 inch and if the indentation remains, it’s ready to bake.
    6. Preheat your oven to 375º. Bake in the center of the oven for 35 minutes (or until internal temperature reads 190º). The top of the loaf should be golden in color. Remove from oven and let the bread sit in the pan for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, tilt the pan to remove the bread to cool on a cooling rack. Wait at least 1 hour before cutting (to prevent the loaf from deflating).
