Inspired by an article that featured some interesting recipes from years gone by, we were quite intrigued by what was described as a Canadian Egg Burger. We thought adding Piccalilli or Chillililli into the mix to give the burger something extra and now it's become a firm favourite as an evening meal or Sunday brunch. We've introduced several friends to these delicacies, like many of our recipes they are simple, but effective and offer something a little bit different.
Evening meal or Brunch
Probably more of a bhaji than a burger (the main role of the egg is to bind the patties together), you can have these mild using Piccalilli or spice them up with our hotter Chillililli or Sillylilli for a real kick.
One of our very early creations when we began creating tasty dishes with our products and a firm favourite with customers.
Looking for an alternative to a regular burger and fancy something a bit different? Give these a go and you won't be dissapointed!
