Leftovers for Lunch and Burgers for Dinner Category: Recipes

We still have some of the cooked salmon in the fridge. I enjoyed a slice of it for lunch yesterday on a slice of toasted chilli bread…

For dinner we couldn’t decide what to have. It was one of those days when you know what you do not want. So we ruled out pasta (had too much recently), rice, fish & chicken. I flicked through some books for inspiration and came across the LA Burger in Bill Granger’s – Every Day.

Easy and quick to make, but very nice…

Ingredients (for 4)

  • 500g lean minced pork
  • 1/2 onion, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted fennel seeds, crushed
  • 40g breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Combined all ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Shape into 4 small burgers.
  3. Cover & leave in fridge for 30minutes.
  4. Heat non-stick frying pan & cook burgers for about 5 minutes on each side
  5. Serve on a bun of your choice with a handful of rocket and thinly sliced red onion.

And we also made some crispy cakes for Easter!
