One of the best things about summer is the chance to chill outside at the campsite with friends, your favourite drink and a red-hot BBQ. There’s nothing quite like the smell and sound of campers enjoying one of the greatest pleasures of camping.
Whether you fire up the coals for communal burgers, steamed mussels or take the time to gut, marinade and cook a fish, anything goes with this type of cooking, and the added bonus is the regular cook usually gets the night off as everyone always wants to get involved.
So we decided to think about our own favourite burgers and come up with a list of 5 we felt (in our humble opinion) were the best. We even believe if made in this way they make perfectly respectable and healthy camping food, especially if layered with tomatoes, cucumber, gherkins, avocado, BBQ’d pineapple, grated carrot, onions or campfire roasted peppers. Yummy!
Sizzle the onions and chillies in the oil until tender. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for a few minutes. Then whizz up in a blender until its smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and whizz again until it’s the consistency you like (we like ours crunchy).
Now all you have to do is sit in that comfy camping chair, put your feet up and sunglasses on, take your burger in both hands, look at it for a while… then… enjoy!
