Sunday Brunch Sorted! A quick & healthy recipe to make for Sunday brunch

Ok so we all know Sunday’s should be for relaxing, reading, sleeping in but at some point you are going to have to eat! I love this delicious open burger recipe I make for my family. It’s quick and easy to make and full of nutrients. Perfect for those who are eating Keto style foods or gluten free and lactose free.

Mushroom open burger

Serves 4 cooking & planning time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

500 g beef mince

Salt to taste

2 large or 4 medium sweet potatoes

4 teaspoons Chives

4 tablespoons Lactose free cream cheese

4 very large mushrooms (for burger base)

4 slices lactose free cheese

1 tablespoon plant based or lactose free butter or margarine

Method

1) place mince in a large glass bowl and add salt, mix salt in and split mince into 4 equal size piece and form into balls. Place in fridge until needed.

2) Fill a medium size pan halfway with water, add salt to taste and peel and cut sweet potatoes into chunks, place in pan and set to boil. Once boiled, remove and drain and set aside until ready to use.

3) While sweet potatoes are boiling, heat up a grill or grill pan. If using grill pan add butter/margerine, once melted add one ball of mince at a time and squash down with a metal spatula to form burger. Set on medium and cook 2-3 minutes then flip and cook other side for the same amount. if pan is big enough add mushrooms and fry a couple minutes each side or do one a separate pan.

4) when you flip burgers over add a tablespoon of cream cheese on top, sprinkle chives and add cheese on each burger.

5) Mash sweet potatoes and once mushrooms are cooked place in a plate and add burger sprinkle at chives if you like.

Serve with French fries or healthy salad.

This burger is not only delicious and healthy but very filling. All the flavours blend beautifully and is perfect for not only brunch but lunch, dinner and breakfast!

Looking for a quick and easy way to prepare your family meals? If so read on……

My family has different tastes in food, different requirements and so I find preparing dinner a nightmare at times.

I found this brilliant indoor grill while out shopping one day and it’s been a lifesaver at meal times. Now I can cook steak for the boys and chicken for us girls. I only use one appliance and the washing up is easy!

The grill is electrical with a drawer you fill with water. The water acts as a buffer so there is minimal smoke. You can use it indoors or outside.

I will put recipes up from time to time of things I have cooked on this grill.

Thank you for reading my posts. Have a wonderful day.

My new best friend…..

Move over George Foreman grill I have found a new best friend! The Russell Hobbs Multifunction benchtop oven!

Russell Hobbs Oven

This oven is amazing! It bakes, it grills, it air fry’s and toasts bread!

It has an easy to clean pull out tray they catches all the crumbs comes with 3 trays plus the crumb tray.

It’s not a bulky unit so would fit most benchtops. To clean just wipe with a clean damp cloth and wash removal trays in warm soapy water. Make sure to dry thoroughly before putting back in the oven. I bought mine from Big W.

Overall I give it a 10/10 for efficiency, reliability and time saving. Best of all the oven heats up quickly so no waiting time!

Thank you for reading my blog post! Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Sunday Funday Pancakes!

A little twist on your traditional pancake recipe!

Who doesn’t love fluffy pancakes on a lazy Sunday morning! By adding creamy delicious Greek Yoghurt to the mix they are even fluffier and more delicious! I use Jalna lactosefree Greek yoghurt.

Jalna is my absolute favourite brand of yoghurt as it truly is thick and creamy and a great compliment to any meal or eat it on its own.

Take a look at the recipe below!
