A homemade burger is a million miles away from what you’ll end up buying from a fast food outlet. Not only is the meat in a league of its own entirely, but you can combine flavours to create your ultimate burger – and that’s something priceless!
Everyone loves a classic beef burger and it tastes even better in the summer when you’ve fired up the barbecue as it lends some of its smokiness to the meat. If you cook it just right it’ll be the perfect combination of slightly crispy on the outside and perfectly juicy inside.
But why keep things simple when you could try one of our more exciting flavour combinations, like chicken and chorizo open burger with garlic mayo! This is a firm favourite because with every mouthful you get smoky chicken and juicy fragrant chorizo. Combined with the garlic mayo, this burger is a real taste sensation!
Lamb makes a superb burger too, especially mixed with the right ingredients to bring out the best in it. Our Indian spiced lamb burgers with raita are really original and will be a surefire way to impress guests at your barbecue this summer. If you can’t barbecue them, then worry not, a chargrill pan does the job just great and it means you can enjoy them year round.
Even if you’re vegetarian or vegan you don’t have to miss out, we have plenty of recipes to put a smile on your face – halloumi and mushrooms are great meat alternatives when it comes to burgers, as are aubergines as they’re all quite substantial. Combined with some spicy chutney, lettuce or any other topping you prefer, you’ve got a mouthwatering burger in front of you.
ou’ll never think of burgers in the same way once you’ve tried one of our burger recipes. Vegetarians and carnivores alike will find their perfect burger recipe!
