Kids Monster Burger

Burgers shouldn’t be boring, and we heartily recommend letting your kids play with their food! This recipe combines spikey onion hair, mayo fangs, a crazy ketchup face and family friendly flavours. Get your little ones to help out building their very own monster burger and add a bit of creativity to summer mealtimes!

  • red onion 
  • 200ml tomato sauce 
  • 2 packs Galloway beef burgers
  • 1 pack plain buns/rolls
  • 1 pack cherry tomatoes
  • 1 romaine lettuce
  • 1 pack cheddar cheese slices
  • 50 ml mayonnaise
  • Start by heating a frying pan on medium to high heat then add a little oil and gently place the burgers in the pan
  • Allow the burger to cook and nicely caramelize on one side before turning and repeating the process on the other side
  • Once the burger is nicely caramelized place them in the oven and allow to cook through for 5 minutes
  • During this time you can slice the tomatoes into quarters and the lettuce into squares. You can also slice the onion into thin slices
  • Take the top part of the roll and along one side make 8 holes with a skewer. Take 8 pieces of thinly cut onion and slide them in to make the hair. Then take the tomato sauce in a squeezy bottle or piping bag and begin to draw your “monster” face on the top of the bun. You can use a small amount of mayo to make teeth/fangs! I like to use half a tomato as a big red nose!
  • Take the burgers out the oven and cover with one slice of cheddar cheese and return to the oven for 2 minutes to allow it to melt.
  • To assemble the burger place a slice of lettuce on the bottom bun with some tomato pieces. Place the burger on top with a little bit of tomato sauce followed by the monster face bun.
  • Enjoy
  • This burger goes really well with curly fries.
