Simple Supper – Blue Cheese Burgers and Double stuffed Skins

As the weather gets brighter, we have started to sort the garden and do a few Spring cleaning jobs, I wanted something simple for tonight.

 

Beef Hache Steaks (Burgers) from Muscle Food in Brioche Buns with Gorgonzola and salad, double stuffed potato skins with bacon, onion and cheddar 😇

I microwave a medium size potato per person, for about 8-9 minutes on high – when they have cooled enough to handle, cut them in half and scoop out the flesh into a separate bowl.

Whilst the potatoes are cooking, gently fry off some chopped smoked bacon, and a finely diced small onion. This is a really good way of using up those bits you have in the fridge, mushrooms, peppers, ham instead of bacon, whatever you have

Mix the potato flesh in with the bacon mix, 2 tablespoons of plain yoghurt and 50g of grated cheddar- season to taste.

Spoon the mix back into the potato skins and pop onto a baking sheet, ready to go into a preheated oven (180) for approx 15 mins till golden and yummy.

When the potatoes are in the oven, heat a pan or griddle and cook your burgers.

toast the cut sides of your burger Buns.

and plate up with the salad etc ready for them.

When you have turned your Burgers, in the last minutes, add a good blob of Aldi Gorgonzola, as it starts to melt pop onto the buns, I have added caramelised red onion (these are homemade see this Link ) and Rocket leaves.

Plate up the potatoes and a green salad and enjoy – Simple 😉

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...
