Five Burger Meals

Back in the seventies, burgers mostly came in a can of four complete with gravy. Those can still be bought but times have changed. A burger is now something that is fried and comes in a bun. Plus it has to be loaded with extras too in order to ‘supersize’ it.

These recipes are much more in keeping with the ‘burger from a can’ approach of the seventies. My opinion is that it is a much better way to cook and serve them. Grilling or frying has a place too but preferably in moderation.

Check the recipes and see what you think.

Burger, Chips and Baked Beans

Burger, Chips and Baked Beans

Almost a British standard which dates back many years. It was a common choice for the lorry drivers that would stop at the motorway service area that I once worked at.

Popular with the holdaymakers too who were headed south on the M6 and pulled in for a break and something to eat.

Burger in Gravy

Burger in Gravy

Burgers cooked in the steamer along with potatoes and green veg. Then plenty of gravy plus optionally some mint sauce to serve.

Maybe slightly different from the burgers in gravy that come in the cans but they do come out very similar.

Sausage and Burger Stew

Sausage and Burger Stew

Be extravagant and have both sausage and burger in one meal.
This combines the two with a mix of root vegetables into a meal that can easily be made in the pressure cooker or on the hob.

This one I could easily eat regularly simply by varying the exact ingredients. Just change the any of the sausages, burgers or vegetables to get a different meal.

Burger and Tatties

Burger and Tatties

A burger cooked into curry sauce along with potatoes then served with green vegetables will make a great dinner for all curry lovers. A lazy recipe because it uses a can of potatoes plus a jar of curry sauce.

I am a lazy chef as well as an experimental one!

Pitta Egg Burger

Pitta Egg Burger

Steamed and chopped burger plus sliced hard boiled egg stuffed into a pitta bread. Just add mayo or mustard and a great lunch is made.
