With 3 children, aged 5 and under, life sometimes gets very busy and there is little time for food preparation. Somedays once the homework is completed and other daily chores the last thing I want to do is prepare a meal from scratch. We were invited to do the Rustlers Burger Hacking Challenge and jumped at the opportunity. It sounded like fun to try and transform it into something a little more special.
We purchased our Rustlers twin pack chicken burgers from Tesco, at £2.50, which wasn’t bad for a quick and easy meal. Much cheaper than a takeaway.
The burgers are individually packaged. I was a little disappointed as I was expecting to see some lettuce as per the packaging photo.
The instructions state to heat the burger in the microwave. I don’t usually like things heated in the microwave, so instead, I toasted the bun and placed the chicken burgers in my Breville Halo for 4 minutes. Heating the burgers this way ensured the crumbs didn’t end up soggy.
While the buns toasted and the burger heated, I set about raiding the fridge for something to liven the burgers up with.
Next, I let the kids arrange their burgers.
In next to no time the burgers were ready, they were a hit. The use by date on the burgers was a whole week after we bought them, so they are great to have in as a quick meal on busy days.
