Ultimate Fakeaway Fully Loaded Burger, Dirty Fries and Homemade Ginger Icecream

Bloomin famished today – nothing but a big old burger will do 😉 We ate our main meal at lunchtime today, as we are out later.  No bun, a a few sweet potato fries for me – Sometimes it’s good to be bad 😜


Its a trendy thing the burger now, gone the flaccid White roll, anaemic burger with a squidge of ketchup

IMG_4237bring on the mega burgers and their partners the dirty fries…


I have 100% Beef quarter pounder burgers, crispy smoked streaky bacon, cheese slices, Mayo, BBQ sauce along with lettuce, tomato and onion slices


in a toasted Brioche bun for the men


The burgers need to be flame Grilled to get the best taste in my opinion, but griddled or grilled is fine, I’ve griddled mine – CBA to light the BBQ 🙃


The fries are thin cut French fries with a Cajun spice mix,

onion rings topped off with shredded Lettuce, spring onion, BBQ sauce, a sour cream dressing, crispy bacon bits and a defibrillator 😉


My version was a burger (buried under the salad) no bun, a scant handful of sweet potato fries, 3 onion rings and loads of salad


Sometimes it’s good to be bad 😇


For dessert we are having homemade Ginger Icecream with optional


dark chocolate sauce 😜 (I am forgoing this for the sake of my newly appearing waist 😭) I have made this before so here is a Link

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...

  1. omgoodness those portions on the stock pics yours however look lovely do you find you smoke the house out with the burgers on the griddle ? i would like to do mine like that but always end up chucking them in the oven when the smoke alarm goes off

    1. We have the built in extractor on turbo when griddling 😷 and even though I ate about a quarter of Hubby’s portion, I am still feeling like a Sumo 🤣 it was good though 😊
