Homemade, Bun-Less Burgers Recipe!

Hello lovelies,

I can’t actually take credit for today’s post. This is actually my mums famous burger recipe I’m sharing with you all.

For years now my mums been making her own homemade burgers and it’s always such a treat when she makes them. Not to hype her up or anything but these burgers are a firm favourite in this household.

Recently I’ve been spending more time in the kitchen learning to properly cook dinners. I know… I’m 22 and should already know how to cook meals but let’s bypass that for now haha.

So, my mum has been teaching me how to make her burgers and I’m super excited to share this yummy recipe with you.

Let’s get into it:

      These are the best burgers I’ve tried (not to sound to big headed haha) I mean you can eat them with buns of course but they taste just as good without. You’ll have to let me know what you think Xo
