The burgers are easy to make but not particularly special, however, the beetroot mayo was a real 'find' and I will be using that again.

Tasty, quick and simple - what more could you want from a midweek supper?

Once again Good Food has come up trumps!! Very quick and tasty although we don't eat bread so just made a salad and some new potatoes. Delicious ( sorry not the rival magazine :-)) )

Easy to make and smelt heavenly whilst cooking. Also made the baked skinny fries which were lovely. A definite keeper!

What a wonderful recipe! The herby burgers brilliant but the star is the beetroot mayo! I Love it! I now have it as a side to any meal with chips, bacon butties. Truely Yummy. Even my boyfriend liked it and he's not a fan of beetroot.

An addendum to my main comment....I have used the beetroot mayo as a side to many a dish, the latest revelation being hotdogs (bog standard pork sausages) with fried onions in sub rolls, with a big dollop of beetroot mayo. It is AMAZING.

I really enjoyed this dish. I was initially worried that it might need some cheese to jazz it up (was toying with adding a slice of halloumi to each burger) but it was absolutely lovely as it was, so I was very pleased. I fried the burgers in a little veg oil; although I do have a griddle pan, experience has taught me to avoid using it if I don't want to spend the entire night trying to clean the blasted thing. This recipe is definitely a keeper, we don't eat meat very often in this household but when we do we like to enjoy it, so this does the job. I served the burgers in homemade sesame buns with some roasted potato wedges seasoned with oregano and cayenne, and a massive salad. Lush.
