Introduction

I love this cheap and cheerful family dinner.

It’s perfect for those busy days when you know you have to feed a family at the end, or for those warm days when you don’t want to run your oven.

And now that a trip to the supermarket costs about $7,000, it’s a budget-friendly, tasty and filling dinner that can safely stay on high rotation.

Imagine. You can take all the childhood favourite flavours of a classic cheeseburger, but make it under $4.50 per serve.

Even better, you don’t need to leave the house to get it and it cooks itself!

Slow, fast food anyone?
