Burger Recipes

The UK is certainly partial to a burger or two – so much so that there’s an entire day dedicated to them. National Burger Day (24 August 2017) is the perfect excuse to indulge, so we’ve rounded up the best chefs’ burger recipes to try for the edible occasion.

Best for something cheesy: Richard Harris’ Chilli Cheese Burgers

Chilli Burger

The secret to a good beefburger, according to chef and food stylist Richard Harris, is simplicity; great beef, simply seasoned and cooked well.  This burger uses a trio of beef cuts with added chilli cheese to create a sumptuous bite. Try his recipe here.

2 Best for something vegan: Nancy Anne Harbord’s Tempura Tofu Steak Burgers With Coriander Pesto


These crispy tofu burgers are packed with flavour and nutrition. Think meaty, umami and extremely satisfying with slices of creamy avocado, red onion and tangy coriander pesto. Find the recipe here.
