Whilst cooking may not be at the top of your list for ways you’d like to spend your time, we guarantee with these quick-to-make new burger recipes from HelloFresh, you’ll be left with a full appetite for less the effort. 

WATCH NOW: Footage goes viral of McDonald’s burger being made into icecream. Article continues after video. 

Launched as a homage of sorts to the huge sporting events that have captured the hearts and eyeballs of the nation this year, these limited-edition burger recipes are crowd-pleasers through and through. 

Take it from me, I actually road-tested these recipes!

According to the meal subscription service, each recipe – English Pork Breakfast Burger, South African Style Beef Burger and Fries, and the Argentinian Chimichurri Chicken Burger – presents a unique international twist on the humble burger. 

And just a word to the wise, whilst my food presentation skills clearly need some work, the taste tests far surpassed my expectations (because beauty is on the inside after all).

English Pork Breakfast Burger

Prep Time: 30

Difficulty Level: Easy

The Verdict: As someone who usually skips breakfast, it was a shock to the senses to be eating not just a burger, but one with a side of crispy garlicky roast potatoes to start my day. I must admit that I may have been converted eating a hearty morning meal thanks to this recipe – it’s favoured by the Brits for a reason!

South African-Style Pork Burger and Fries with Cucumber & Spicy Volcano Sauce

Prep Time: 30 Minutes

Difficulty Level: Easy

The Verdict: Whilst I personally have the worst tolerance to anything spicy, this burger is PERFECT for those who like a little spice in their meals! The cucumber, mayonnaise, and avocado perfectly compliment the heat so if you are feeling brave, we would recommend giving this one a go!

NOTE: For the purposes of this trial I was given beef mince instead of pork mince so I could taste test a wider range of meat options. Pictured are not the burger buns that the meal kit came with, rather make-do bread rolls from my local bakery as someone in my household ate the burger buns when they weren’t meant to (how naughty, I know!).

Argentinian Chimichurri Chicken Burger

Prep Time: 30 Minutes

Difficulty Level: Easy

The Verdict: Whilst I know I shouldn’t pick favourites, this chimichurri chicken delight has well and truly won over my stomach (and heart). Packed to the brim with all the good stuff and garnished with garlic aioli and chimichurri sauce, you’ll be licking your lips for sure!

Available from Monday, September 25.
