Burger’s and cheese cake; if I eat out and their on the menu they are mine. Today I have been getting busy in the kitchen recreating two of my all time favourite foods with a little help from Iceland.
I have worked with Iceland on their #PowerOfFrozen campaign in the past, since doing so I have been a complete convert I love the frozen ready sliced veg and herbs they are just so handy and you get a lot more for your money.
So on with today’s challenge, Iceland asked me to create a healthy, quality meal whist cutting the hassle and time it takes to make. Awesome challenge for a busy mum like me, time is never on my side so looking at ways to create a quick, delicious and nutritious meal for my girls is perfect.
Burger’s and cheese cake though, healthy? Not a word usually associated with burgers but these hidden veggie burgers are a great way to get some more vegetable’s into non vegetable loving children – they also taste pretty darn good even if I do say so myself.
This is the first time I have tried this recipe so it was a chuck it in and hope for the best jobby but it worked.
500g lean beef mince
Frozen sliced peppers
Frozen diced onions
Frozen mixed veg
So first I blended the veggies – frozen sliced onions, frozen sliced peppers and frozen mixed veg. It doesn’t look very pretty but once mixed into the mince its barely noticeable.
I combined all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl, a little messy but is easiest to do with your hands. I judged the ingredients by how it was looking – if it felt too wet I added some more breadcrumbs.
Once all well combined you need to make them into burger shapes; tip don’t make them too thick I found fatter but thinner was a lot quicker to cook. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan and gently fry the burgers for roughly 5 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
And serve – simple as that!
I spotted some frozen sweet potato fries in Iceland and just needed to give them a try – makes a lovely and healthier alternative to normal chips.
For pudding we tucked into these delicious mini strawberry cheesecakes – again made solely with products from Iceland’s large selection of fresh products and again I completely made up the recipe but I am hoping I can repeat it they were so so good! I will share a proper recipe for these next week.
Nom nom nom as always Iceland has done us well – we have seen the #PowerOfFrozen, have you?
