Amazing homemade reggae reggae burger recipe

Among our family and friends, this is our most sought after recipe. James likes to create his own burgers from scratch when we have a BBQ. Since I tasted his burgers, I’ve never enjoyed any other burgers as much as these. Now, we could keep this as a secret family recipe… But where’s the fun in that?! Here’s James’ homemade reggae reggae burger recipe.

Behind-the-scenes tips!

You may have already guessed, these burgers are made with reggae reggae sauce. It brings sooo much flavour! We also advise using 5% fat beef mince for the best texture and taste.

This recipe is fairly fuss-free, too! There’s a quick fry up of onion and garlic to begin with and the rest of the ingredients are just mixed together. Plus you can make these burgers in advance and freeze them (although we recommend eating them fresh!)

Planning your BBQ for guests

The day we had our BBQ, it was gloriously hot. It can be tempting to put lots of food out when you have lots of guests. However, from experience, most people don’t each as much when the weather is warmer than usual. We kept our BBQ feast small. Along side our burgers, we had some barbecued chicken, oven chips and salad. Clover was definitely interested in what was on offer!
