It's the final day of My Hero Academia week! I've had so much fun creating recipes for these characters and we're wrapping it up with something more simple: a burger for Denki Kaminari.
According to the information cards on each student featured in the episodes, Denki's favorite food is a hamburger. But everyone knows how to make those and that seemed a little boring... but I saw this pre-seasoned ground chicken at Publix that happened to be BOGO and I knew it would be perfect for a burger in honor of Denki. It's a Thai-style ground chicken, meaning it's got garlic, shallots, ginger, and soy sauce worked in... and get this: the brand name is Mighty Spark. It was destined for our Denki-inspired dish, given he's got an electricity Quirk!
To lean in to these flavors, I'll be topping this burger with some Japanese mayonnaise and some okonomiyaki sauce (I'll show you how I make mine below, or you can buy your own on Amazon) instead of your standard ketchup or mustard.
