Home made bacon chilli cheeseburgers, chips and slaw
I love this meal. A slimming world recipe that is better than the real thing. Home made beefburgers are so much nicer than those bought in burger bars and so easy to make. You will never eat a McDonalds again!
To make 4 burgers.
500g low fat minced beef.
(Asda do ” less than 5% and Aldi do less than 10% fat minced steak)
two egg yolks
Quite simply mix the mice beef with the flavourings of your choice. I used Chilli flakes for me and finely chopped red onion for Michael, plus garlic salt. Then mash the beef, flavourings and egg yolks with a fork until well mixed. Shape the beef into four patties with your hands.
I usually make these burgers in advance . They freeze well ,wrapped individually in
clingfilm. but bring up to room temperature before cooking.
Spray griddle with frylight or oil and cook for 5-7 minites each side . Throw in some sliced mushrooms and a couple of rashers of bacon when the second side is cooking.
Serve in a bun, or assemble the bacon cheese burger. I use a triangle of Laughing Cow extra light cheese, instead of a slice of cheese, on top of the burger when hot so it melts a bit. Top with the bacon rasher and mushrooms. Garnish with rings of red onion and parsley.
FOR THE CHIPS. (FRIES).
Scrub .potatoes and cut into shape, leave the skin on. We prefer slices across the potato but traditionally British chips are long and chunky..
Steam for 6 minutes in a steamer. Lift the lid and allow to dry off for minute or so. shake to rough them up a bit.
Meanwhile. line a roasting tray with greaseproof paper and spray with fryliight or oil. Arrage the potato slices on the tray and spray with frylight. sprinkle with salt or garlic salt (optional) Cook in a hot over or under a grill for around 20 minutes, truning halfway through and again spray with frylight.
FOR THE SLAW.
10g white cabbage finely shredded OR 2 celery sticks chopped ( I prefer celery)
1 carrot peeled and grated
1 red dessert apple unpeeled, cored and chopped fine
one level tablespoonful fat free natural yoghurt
half tablespoonful extra light mayonnaise
2 spring onions chopped, to garnish
Put the cabbage or celery carrot and apple into a bowl. Combine the mayonnaise and yoghurt and stir into the celery/cabbage apple carrot mixture.
Fronm one exreeme to the other. Chips lightly battered haddock( cooked to order) and mushy peas from the local fish and chip shop. Known as the Chippie.
A traditional British dish. Not quite up the haute cuisine but sometimes the simplest meal can taste wonderful!
