Thank you craftermary. It has taken a while to get the burgers the right blend of spices but now I love making them. I put chives in too when I have them. Really great flavour from the chilli and chives. Not a combination I would of liked before SW

Slightly bold weekend, have been a busy bee. Travelled three hours down home to see family and friends yesterday and back again today, so I have been on plan, but I decided to count yesterday as a a Flexi syn day as I was somewhat off track as I was on the go and didnt prep properly.

(What syns is in battered fish if you dont eat the batter?)

Thanks Mini.
Yeah It is just delish!! Really quick and easy and tasty too which is the main thing. Only takes about 20 mins, when you count the prep time, normally I'd make it with courgettes sliced up too, but just used what was in mums fridge while I was home :) Love comfort food when the weather is like this between Storm Clodagh and the snowy mountains, I just want comfort food and a good movie :) I'm studying a computer course, looking to move into admin position as design jobs are scarce.
