Josh and I really love burgers (probably one of our favorite foods) and mixing the flavors is just one of the ways I like experimenting with them. Don’t get me wrong we love a good ol greasy beef and cheese burger! the greasier the better, but sometimes we need to make sure that we are getting our greens in and find ways to enjoy it…. in a healthier way…
Hope you enjoy this recipe and I’ll be sure to post more weird and wacky burger recipes in the future.
400g Beef Mince
1 Free Range Egg
1 Tbsp of Flour
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 Small Red Onion
Handful of Coriander
Handful of Basil Leaves
1 Tbsp of White Wine Vinegar
1 Tsp Olive Oil
Rest of the Ingrediants
Brioche Burger Buns
1 Squirt of Aioli Sauce
Jalapeno Chutney (optional)
2 x Sweet Corns on the Cob (Halved)
1 Tbsp of oil
Sprinkle of Peri Peri Chilli Powder
1 Tsp of Extra Hot Peri Peri Sauce (optional)
Mix the beef, egg, flour and salt in a bowl and make two even balls.
Heat a pan with oil on medium heat and cook your patty’s for 4-5 minutes on each side. This will give you a meium-rare patty. Cook for longer if you prefer it well done. Once cooked place the slices of cheese on the patty and close the lid so that the cheese can melt and settle on the patty.
In a bowl mix your chopped up pickle salad elements and mix well with the oil and vineger.
Toast your brioche buns in the oven or in a pan.
Assemble your burger as so:
Lid of bun
Place the corns on a sheet of tin foil.
spread oil, salt, peri peri sauce and powder on the corn.
Wrap the foil really tightly and grill on your stove.
Rotate the corn every thirty seconds and cook for a total of 5-6 minutes.
I won’t lie, for years I was cooking eggs wrong. I would always overcook them and dry them out. I thought it was normal until i saw Gordon Ramseys version on youtube. I was hooked and needed to try this wonderful gooey goodness.
I hope you enjoy my version of Ramsey eggs and let me know if you try it 🙂
This recipe is for two adults
5 free range eggs
1 Tbsp of Greek yogurt
Chives, Cilantro, spring onions – a handful
salt and pepper to suit
2 Tbsp butter – salted
in a bowl/jug mix the eggs, yogurt, herbs with the salt and pepper.
whisk it well with a fork.
heat your pan on medium heat and melt the butter.
pour the mixture into the pan and keep an eye on it.
grab a silicon spatula and mix the eggs consistently to avoid them being over cooked.
after 5 minutes of cooking take them off the heat (they should still be a bit gooey and not stiff. set aside for a minute whilst you plate up the rest of your breakfast.
Usually i serve this with fresh toasted bread, grilled tomatoes, avocado and strips of bacon. This dish is a family favorite in my house. hope you like it 🙂
I am a big fan of mince based foods and today I tried something a little different to my usual spaghetti bolognese or lasagna. This dish is full of goodness and you can alter the side vegetables in this dish to suit your taste buds.
Beef Mince 200-300g
1 Tbsp of Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to Taste
1 Yellow Onion – Thinly Sliced
3 Cloves of Garlic – Thinly sliced or Minced
1 Cup of Frozen Spinach – You can use fresh too.
1 Cube of Beef stock
1 Cup of Warm Water
3 Tsp of Plain Flour
3 Medium sized white potatoes (cubed)
1 Tsp of Paprika
1/2 Tsp of cumin
1 Tsp of Garlic powder
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Heat the oil in a pot on a medium high heat
Saute the onions until they turn light brown in colour
Add the mince and cook until brown
Season the mince and then add your spinach
In your cup of water add the beef stock cube and add this mixture to the pot.
Let the mince simmer for 2 minutes and then reduced the heat to low.
add the flour and stir – making sure you have no clumps of flour.
the consistency of the dish should be similar to a stew.
Boil water in a medium sized pot and add the potatoes
let this boil for 15 minutes until just cooked.
Once the potatoes are boiled – drain the water and return back to the pot.
Now add the paprika, garlic powder, cumin, salt and a tsp of oil to your potatoes and mix well.
spread the potato cubes on a baking tray and bake in the oven at 200 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
Add steamed broccoli, cauliflower and whatever else you like. the more vegetables the better.
Please let me know if you make this dish and tag me on the photos 🙂
