Part II: "The Patty"
Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl (except sesame seeds).
Mix all wet ingredients (leave one egg aside) together in a separate bowl.
Combine the wet into the dry until it forms soft but not sticky dough. Let proof for approximately 10 minutes.
Prepare a 10-inch round pan with vegetable spray and lightly sprinkle with corn meal (the cornmeal will prevent the dough from sticking to the pan).
Beat the leftover egg in a bowl for egg wash.
Press the proofed dough into the pan, brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds; cover and let the dough double in size (approximately 45 minutes).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Take bun out of the pan as soon as possible and let cool on a rack.
Thoroughly mix all of the ingredients together and form into a ball.
Line an 8-inch round pan with parchment paper and lightly spray it with cold water (Wet your hands as well as it will help with the handling process).
Press the meat out with your hands until it covers the whole pan.
Place another parchment paper on top and press down firmly with another smaller pan. This will help compress the meat and will help the meat cook evenly on the grill, frying pan or BBQ.
Remove patty from the pan and cook on grill over medium heat. Temperature of meat should read 180 degrees Fahrenheit when done.
Slice the mammoth bun in half and lightly toast it on your grill or BBQ.
Remove the bun and start garnishing it with your favourite toppings such as: mayonnaise, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, relish, corn relish, onions, banana peppers and BBQ sauce. Really, the list is endless. So, just enjoy your Mammoth burger the way you would like it!
