Burger Rarebits



Things have gotten really busy around here.  With medical appointments, visits, and social obligations mixed in with the usual December going's-on life has become jam-packed!  I am not complaining, mind you.  I would rather be busy than bored!


My mother used to say that idle hands were the Devil's work, so I try to keep pretty busy most of the time anyways, but this time of year, they just seem to get busier.  I said to Todd this morning, however did we get all the things done that we needed to get done when we were both working full time?  I just don't know . . .


I fear I have broken my red-meat rule this week, and broken it badly.  We hardly ever eat red meat.  We might only have it once or twice a month, but this month so far we have had it twice already!  Bad us!


 Meat loaf earlier in the week and then today these Burger Rarebits.  These are such a quick and easy make however, so that could be why I caved and we ate red twice!   Normally I would do them out on the grill, but today I did them indoors. Its just too cold outside!


You can make your own burgers for this, or a good quality store bought burger.  Don't be tempted to use the cheap fatty ones. You will regret it. Trust me.  Today I made my own, which is really easy.  I just combine a good quality steak mince with salt, pepper, onion and garlic powders . . . using a light touch of course, and then I shape them into flat patties, again using a light touch.



I served them with oven chips and some sweet corn.  I normally would have had a salad, but I didn't have any salad bits in.  Nevermind . . .  the meal went down a real treat for both us  as we were absoutely famished after having run around all day! 


The cheesy burger topping is the best!  Its filled with tasty chopped cooked bacon, chopped spring onions, ketchup, mustard, mayo and hot sauce.   You just spread it over your cooked burgers and pop them under the grill to melt.  You could of course serve them on buns, but we are quite happy with them just as they are!



*Burger Rarebits*
Serves 6
 
 
These make a nice quick supper dish.  I don't serve them on buns, but you could certainly do so if you wanted to.  I like to serve these with some sort of potato and a vegetable or salad on the side.
 

150g grated strong cheddar cheese(1 1/4 cups)
4 slices cooked streaky bacon, crumbled
 6 spring onions chopped
  55ggood quality mayonnaise (1/4 cup)
1 TBS tomato catsup
1/2 TBS grainy mustard
1 1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce (more or less according to your own tastes)
6 good quality beef burger patties 


Heat up your gas, charcoal or oven grill.  Mix all the ingredients, except for the beef patties, together in a bowl.  Set aside.


Grill your burger patties under or over medium heat for 4 to 8 minutes, turning once, until the patties are cooked through and nicely browned.  Carefully top each patty with some of the cheese mixture, dividing it equally amongst them.  Cook, covered for 4 minutes longer, or until the cheese is melted and bubbling.


Remove from the grill and serve immediately.



Simple to make, quick and so very delicious!!  These are sure to become firm family favourites with your crowd.  I guarantee!  Bon Appetit!

    1. Hi Monique, a true Welsh Rarebit is a type of thick cheese sauce spread over bread and then grilled until gorgeously bubbly. Its very delicious. It is usually a mix of cheese, ale, mustard, etc. This is a bit of a riff on that. Man food. I nibbled around the edges and they were quite tasty. Perhaps your boys might enjoy? xo
