Beef and Stilton Burgers

Posted By Kerri

Knowing I would be away for most of the weekend, I planned ahead and organised tonight’s dinner well in advance. I made the mistake of checking (and believing) the weather forecast in advance though and when I saw sun, I planned for a barbecue. By the time I got home this evening, it wasn’t particularly sunny but Stephen was happy to light the fire anyway so we went ahead.

The dreary weather had dampened my spirits slightly so I half-heartedly threw this together based on a Gordon Ramsay recipe (which I can’t find online), and made a quick salad to go with it. Shamefully, I didn’t even bother to cook onions or slice lettuce to go with the burgers so what you see here is exactly what we ate: burgers in buns. You can see for yourself that I didn’t pay much attention to the photography either.

We weren’t convinced of the quality of the beef mince we were using so opted to cook these all the way through which meant they’d dried out a little. The flavour combination worked well though (beef, red onion, chives, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce, English mustard, Stilton) and next time I’ll go a bit heavier on the seasoning and use better beef. An extra wodge of cheese in the middle wouldn’t hurt either.

    They may be plain but it looks a good thick burger. I wouldn’t complain if you gave me one!

    That’s what gave me the inspiration actually, Pip. I didn’t want to link to *there* though 🙂

  4. “it wasn’t particularly sunny but Stephen was happy to light the fire anyway ” = that’s Saffers for you 🙂 Nick has braaied in the snow :o)

    I love chunky burgers like this, but would not argue with an extra wodge of cheese in the middle!
