Hawaiian Burger

  Hawaiian cuisine is a fascinating thing, a real melting pot of influences from all corners of the world.  I’ve experimented with this burger over the past year or so, never really feeling like I got it right.  The inclusion of Spam and Pineapple was a given, but I often found the teriyaki influence overpowering. …

Christmas Turkey Burger

Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat.  Please put a penny in the old man’s hat! I do love this time of year, not least because every restaurant menu gets about 15x better.  Decadent mixtures of cheese, bacon, sauces, sausages etc.  Truly, it is a time to indulge, and what better way than with…

Lamb Burgers with Goats Cheese and Mint Sauce

Burgers are one of the simplest ways to serve up a powerful mouthful of flavour, and lamb is one of my favourite meats to work with.  It has a real richness that marries beautifully with those bright, fresh flavours.  This recipe puts it with the incredibly refreshing combo of mint, yoghurt and cucumber, while flavouring…

Banana Peel Burgers (low fat/high protein)

Yes, you read that correctly.  I’ll just give you a moment to get back into your chair, fan yourself, whatever it takes.  The other day I was wondering what kind of savoury food could be made using pancakes…what I uncovered was something far stranger than I ever imagined. Bizarrely, something about the banana peel in…

Low Fat Pork Burger (using Cauliflower Breadcrumbs)

Total Cooking Time: 30 minutes Introduction Beef burgers are all the rage, but it’s 2016 and this is my website so shut up.  In any case, this was more of an experiment that fortunately turned out pretty awesome; a very tender burger packed with flavour and goodness. While I’m not one to jump onto many current…

Spicy Mango Beef Burgers

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times – meat and fruit are the perfect partners!  Yes, we all know of Cranberry & Turkey or Apple & Pork.  On this website I’ve already experimented with many more pairings, and here’s time for a bright fresh fruity burger to match the changing weather….

Black Bean Falafel with Peanut Sauce

What can I really say about falafel that isn’t said but it’s wonderful taste?  Its crisp outer coating and fluffy, flavourful insides?  It truly is one of the greatest fast-food items the world over, a shining glory of the already fantastic Middle Eastern cuisine. Traditionally made from chick peas and served with tahini sauce, I…

Guinness Infused Burgers with Black Cherry Sauce

Beef and stout ale are perfect partners, their beautiful friendship having been explored before, back in the early days of the blog.  The smoky, charred, rich flavour of the stout gives the meat a really hearty body.  It’s no wonder the two so frequently find each other in the comfort food of a winter stew. …

Chickpea and Carrot Burger

  Introduction So, as the Guesscipe Book has already indulged in a delightful beef burger, it seemed about time to bring you a vegetarian-friendly alternative.  In fact, with a substitution or two this is vegan friendly! The main difficulty here is getting to hold together.  Really, it’s just a adjust and test job, so you…

The Guesscipe Burger

Introduction We’re a little wary about the implication that this is some signature dish that we can claim – when it comes to the burger world, just about everything has been done.  Furthermore, we maintain our stance that all guesscipes can/should be adapted.  However, without simply listing all the ingredients in the title (or coming up with…
