Classic gourmet beef burgers

Home made beef burgers.


Today I am sharing a classic beef burger recipe you can really sink your teeth into, but before we get into that I wanted to share an eating out experience from the weekend. On Saturday my husband and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary (yay!), so we dropped the kids off with their grandparents and headed out to Paarl for a day out at Spice Route.

The weather was gorgeous and we had the perfect table at Bertus Basson, under the shade of a huge oak tree and overlooking the vineyards. We received complimentary vetkoek with roasted pear and pecan nut butter on arrival which we enjoyed as we looked over the menu. I had a starter of chicken liver parfait with toasted bread and onion marmalade while hubby enjoyed the beef samosas. For mains I had fish and chips (huge portion size but very tasty) and my husband had the lamb bredie. It was all so tasty, beautifully presented and served with a smile – definitely one to try! After lunch we wandered through the estate to see what else was happening. The pizzeria and burger bars were buzzing, as was the CBC tasting room (we will definitely get to that next time!). Of course we could not leave without a visit to De Villiers Chocolate where we did a very cool chocolate tasting. Needless to say, after all that feasting we did not need any supper that night!
