This just reminds me of Home. I love this Cookbook for everything traditionally Scottish (sometimes with a wee twist). Maw Broon is the indomitable matriarch of the Broons family and the original domestic goddess. In between cooking, cleaning, and setting the world tae rights over a braw cup of tea, she has also found time tae become the bestselling author of many Cookbooks.
The Broons is a comic strip in Scots published in the weekly Scottish newspaper The Sunday Post. It features the Brown family, who live in a tenement flat at 10 Glebe Street in the fictional Scottish town of Auchentogle or Auchenshoogle. Its something I grew up with, every year we would get the annual for Christmas and laugh loudly. The Broons started in 1936 and the annuals go back to 1939.
Makes 4 Large Burgers
500g Scottish Beef Mince
Handful of Breadcrumbs
1 Red Onion – chopped and fried
1 large egg
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tbsp tomato sauce
a dash worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard powder
- Firstly, heat a little oil in a pan a fry the onion until cooked, allow to cool.
- Put all the ingredients into a bowl, add the onion and combine together with hands.
- Cut into 4 sections or 6 if you prefer thinner burgers and shape into your burgers. Mine where about 1″ thick and approx 31/2″ diameter. Place on a tray a refrigerate for about 30 minutes. (helps it keep together when cooking)
- Heat a little spray oil in a griddle pan and cook burgers for about 10-15 minutes, depending on how thick they are.
- Serve on a good Scottish Morning Roll & garnish as you like. Mine is always melted cheese. I think that putting lettuce and tomato on a burger, its just wrong!…lol!
