James’s Ultimate Cheeseburger
Serves 4


Serving suggestion:

  • We recommend serving alongside a cool glass of Pure UBU from Purity Brewing Co – for the grown-ups of course!


  1. Remove the stalk from your mushroom and place a large disc of Black Bomber cheese on each mushroom. Bake at 180˚C in a preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  2. Cook your beef patties in a ridged skillet with a little oil for 6-8 mins and season to taste.
  3. Toast your burger rolls and spread with a little hot lemon and mayo sauce.
  4. Build your burger with a couple of crisp little gem leaves on the base and then your cooked beef burger, next sliced gherkins followed by the grilled cheesy mushroom.
