Burgers in Sour Cream

From: Linda McCartney’s “Home Cooking”, p. 91.

Fried burgers, covered with tasty veg, stewed in the oven.

A lovely winter recipe for meat-eaters and those who love burgers. I made this a little lighter by using only 2 tbsp of olive oil instead of the butter, and reducing the sour cream to 150ml. I think it is also great served with potatoes to soak up the sauce.

Vegan: Use plant-based cream and add a little vinegar to taste.

Burgers with Parsley Butter

From: Linda McCartney’s Home Cooking, p. 91

Ready-made burgers, served with parsley butter- just what the recipe promised 🙂

I made this recipe using home-made black bean burgers, and served it with a green salad. It tasted good but this would be the kind of meal I do not need a recipe for- frying a burger and adding some flavoured butter is not magic… But still, my family did enjoy it and the chances are that I would not have cooked this had it not been for my project…

Vegan and gluten-free: The recipe can be both vegan and gluten-free if the burgers are vegan and/ or gluten-free.

Italian Burgers

From: Linda McCartney’s Home Cooking, p. 103

An oven-baked dish with burgers covered in tomato sauce with olives and mozzarella cheese.

Despite so many recipes in Linda’s book using burgers, this one was a real favourite for my family. It has a lot of flavour and is very satisfying yet not too heavy.

I did use home-made black bean burgers for this recipe. They tasted great but desintegrated during baking time.

Gluten-Free: Make sure the burgers you are using are gluten-free.
