The boyfriend burger

Is the best way to a boy’s heart is through his stomach?  It was a cold day in London today and so it was off to Hampstead Heath to walk Dudley (a beautiful Spinone).  We returned home cold and muddy.  Open fire was roaring.  Delicious burgers were made and comfort movies were watched. I can confirm that the best way to a boy’s heart is through is stomach with a juicy burger.

And so to the Boyfriend Burger recipe.

800g lean minced beef

1 large onion, chopped finely

1 tsp dried chili flakes

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp hot English mustard

1 tbsp wholegrain mustard

1 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Into a large bowl add all the above ingredients and using hands combine together thoroughly. Form into 6-8 hamburger patties. Sear on a hot griddle pan and then fry until browned and cooked through. Serve on a toasted crusty bread bun along with lettuce, fresh tomato slices, beetroot relish, homemade ketchup, fried onions and finally don’t forget the egg, it makes the burger!
