Summer Supper: Corn & Burgers

Burgers make up one of my super-easy, super-yummy suppers. I season some minced beef with sea salt & crushed black pepper, add a generous helping of crushed garlic, a herb (usually rosemary), a spoonful of Dijon mustard, & an egg white. Once shaped into patties, I lightly fry them, turning sides halfway through. (I used to grill them with the Lean Mean Grilling Machine, but I realised that, given I buy 5% lean beef, it's good to keep some of that fat sealed in the burger! Using olive oil & a good pan will give a great taste).

2 small burgers, one toasted roll, & some corn salad on the side - salad inspiration from Heidi of 101cookbooks.

Couldn't resist snapping a few shots of my kitchen contents, having sorted through various tins, jars & foodstuffs today that were crying out to be organised! Look how neat my spice jars look! My fridge looks pityingly empty as I am heading off to Berlin this week, but there are a few staples that survived: Dijon mustard, extra low-fat mayo (seriously, this is genious, 14 cals per tablespoon, & less gloopier than the full-fat stuff), Spanish olives & some Tilapia fish to cook the evening before travelling. 

Oh, & I couldn't throw out the chick, a remnant from Easter decorations. She seemed pretty content to hang out with the herbs & spices ;)
