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 .. 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.
