I am a burger addict and couldn’t imagine anything better than a tasty burger. I don’t remember when it started but I am sure it was at a young age. The only time my parents entertained a burger was when they served them up at a barbeque.
But I had other ideas.
I used to go to McDonalds during my lunch break when I was waitressing as a teenager during the school holidays. I would always sit in McDonalds with the meal deal of the day. Usually a Big Mac with fries and a milkshake and it was food heaven. Also because I was working long hours and always on my feet I never put a pound on so I could easily go twice a week and not worry about my weight.
Fast forward a decade……okay Dominic is watching me type…….TWO decades and I still love my burgers but I don’t want to put too much fast food into my body so I have got into the habit of making my own.
I will use a mixture of beef and pork mince and they will be made in the Air Fryer. They won’t be completely healthy because I will add a fluffy white burger bun and some cheese and mayonnaise but they are better than a Maccy D’s.
