Fast and simple is not my speciality and not at all what I do in the kitchen at Vinnies so whenever I do have to cook dinner for the family after rushing back from ballet or rugby practice, my wife Jane laughs at how long it jolly takes me and how many dishes I produce. So it’s three of Jane’s recipes I am sharing here to help us all get dinner on the table quickly and efficiently.
These burgers always go down well with our three kids, we keep the fillings pretty simple, but you can get as fancy and creative as you wish. This is also a great way to incorporate fish into their weekly diet.
