Mini burgers

mini burgers

These are sure to impress even the fussiest of children! Allow them to stack two burgers between layers of tomatoes and lettuce if they are very hungry. Smaller burger whole-wheat baps are healthier than the favourite large round white baps.

Approx total cost: £3.89 or 65p per portion*

Serves: 6

Total time: 35 mins



  • 300g extra lean beef mince
