Quorn Three Cheese Chicken Crispbakes

It’s always fun to try something new from an established brand, and these Quorn three cheese chicken crispbakes caught our eye right away. They’re part of the Quorn frozen range and present an easy option for those busy weeknights.

They come in at 160 calories each, which certainly qualifies them as a lighter burger. This is great for those who want to have a burger but still watch their weight. The way they are formed means that you can easily eat them on their own, without a burger: the outer crust is very crispy and they hold their form well after cooking. It is not too thick or hard when you bite into them, however. They have a sticky texture on the inside, much as you might expect from melted cheese, as well as chunks of potato.

The Gatehouse Sweet Potato and Mozzarella Burger

We previously reviewed a burger at the Slug and Lettuce, but that venue in Tonbridge has since been renovated into The Gatehouse. Good news for us, because it seemed a lot livelier and had a better atmosphere when we visited to try their new burger!

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, however, as there are a lot of similarities between the two burgers. Here’s the description from The Gatehouse menu:

Smith and Western Nacho Bean Burger

Nacho bean burger from the Smith and Western

So, this is the third time I’ve reviewed the Smith and Western – and it’s their third new burger. The menu changes here so often I can barely keep up, and every time we go back there’s something new. It’s kind of annoying because it means you never get what you were expecting, and when you were looking forward to it, that’s a shame.

Arbuckles Classic Veggi Burger

Arbuckles dessert

Today’s post is a bit special for me, because I FINALLY get to review Arbuckles. This once-big chain is now relegated to a single restaurant in Norfolk, which happens to be right down the road from my parents’ house. Despite it being there, and being popular, for so long, I never managed to make it over for a meal beyond one stop right when we first moved there. Now, at last, here’s my review of the burgers they serve.

We have a lot of fun creating our recipe videos, but this pulled pork burger bake has to be the funnest yet. It’s so good we’ve had it three times already since first trying the recipe. In fact, it’s going to be a staple of our weekly meal plans. It’s SO GOOD, you just have to try it for yourself.

Video: Leek and Feta Fritters

This week I have some completely delicious leek and feta fritters to bring your way. These are SO GOOD that I made some for J to eat later when he came home from a night out and I ate most of those too (sorry!).

There’s a lot of oil involved in this one, and it’s very rare that I cook with oil at all, let alone in this kind of quantity. But the end result is worth it – trust me. If you’re worried about adding calories with the fritters soaked in oil, then make sure to drain them off on paper towels before putting them in the oven – and you can do it again before serving if you feel it’s necessary.
