This week's Wednesday with Donna Hay recipe is my lunch/brunch choice - Beef Burgers! I adore a good burger, and this one has all the trimmings that I like - namely, onion rings and beetroot. So many burgers come sans beetroot, which in my books is a crime. The juicy beetroot goes a treat with the beef, and is a must for me.
As you can see from the photos, Donna's recipe makes a very tall burger - you almost need a flip-top head to take a bite of it all in one go. That's not a complaint though! I did find the patties a little crumbly, but that could just have been me. I used rocket instead of iceberg lettuce on my burger, and spruced it up by spreading the bun with Emilia's onion jam, and a splash of barbecue sauce on the beef patty.
I made a second burger using Donna's patties, this time with cheese in lieu of onion rings, but using Emilia's onion jam on the bun again, with fries on the side:
This one was pretty good too.
