Beef and Blue Cheese Burgers – 3sp

Having created quite a variety of burgers over the past couple of years, I realised this week that I hadn’t written any recipes for good old beef burgers. When scratching my head over what to pair with them I though the classic combo of beef and blue cheese would work quite nicely, and I was definitely right!

Spicy Tuna Burgers – 7sp

Having made a delicious mango slaw with my Hoisin Duck Pancakes recipe I thought I would give this a twist and do a Mango Salsa to accompany it. Everyone knows burgers are nothing without chips so some delicious, well-seasoned Butternut Squash Chips were the perfect accompaniment.
