It’s the one recipe one yummy daddy told me not to share, he loves it that much x (He thinks it’s going to, one day make us millions ) he he x but I’m an all or nothing girl and had to share.  lils nearly swallows them whole. I simply serve the with peas for her.. and load on the onions and mushrooms for ourselves


Tip fresh thyme .. It,s the fresh thyme that gives these burgers that extra something special… I buy a pot of it every so often in the weekly shop.

Grate the onion and crush the garlic & add to a medium bowl with the mince.

Chop a few sprigs of fresh thyme  add it to the mince with the beef stock cube.

Get your hands in and mix.
Roll into mince balls and flatten into burgers.

Put aside  cover with cling film and leave in the fridge while you make the Chips.

Peel the potatoes  Slice lengthwise to make rectangular chips.

  • .Add the chips to boiling water and cook for 6 minutes. (just bring back to the boil)

no need for oil on the burgers.

Cook for 20 mins flipping the burgers after 10 mins .  Healthy burgers and chips, slimming world friendly too  .. enjoy x
