Fakeaway -Burger Bellybuster 🤗

Youngest is still at home, making the most of the hotel home comforts, he has made a special request – Burger and Chips….🙄 It’s also VAT time again, so something quick and Fuss Free is always a good idea.


I bought some Aldi Aberdeen Angus quarter pounder burgers, and I have some Brioche Buns in the freezer, just the chips and extras to cater for.


For the burger sauce it couldn’t be easier 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise, 1 of ketchup, a good sprinkle of garlic powder, 6 or so cornichon finely chopped, black pepper to taste

– stir together – done…

Griddle the burgers, till they are cooked through, I use the griddle to ‘toast’ the brioche buns too



I love that extra texture the crunch gives.


Pile it up high with salad, sauce, burger and thinly sliced cheese, with a topping of sliced cornichon and ‘pickled’ red onion – finely sliced onion with a couple of tablespoons of red wine vinegar and a teaspoon of sugar, tossed together and left for an hour before serving.


I have taken out the tiny fat fryer, and cooked up some French fries, and served with a splodge of coleslaw – who needs Golden Arches 😉

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
