BumbleBee Burgers by Lee Samantha

BumbleBee Burgers are ideal for Spring time.


1. BumbleBee
– Chicken meat patty
– Cheddar cheese
– Nori (seaweed)
– Zucchini (wings)

– 300g chicken mince
– 1/2 onion, finely chopped
– 1 tbsp Dijon
– 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
– 1/4 tsp paprika
pinch of salt and pepper


1. Combine mince, onion, dijon, breadcrumbs, paprika, salt and pepper. Mix with hands, then form into patties. (tip: coat hands with oil to avoid mince mixture sticking on hands)
2. Place a frypan over medium high heat. Cook chicken patties with oil. Cook 4 mins each side.
3. Remember to place cheese on the chicken patties 2 mins after flipping. Cover frypan and cook for 2-3 more mins until chicken patties are cook through.

– Sweet potatoes
– Olive oil. A couple of tablespoons or so. Enough to lightly and evenly coat the fries.
– Salt, pepper and some paprika

1. Preheated oven 200 degree celsius. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into fry-shaped pieces (see photos). Try to cut them into similarly sized pieces so the fries will bake evenly.
2.Season with salt, pepper, and paprika. Pour the fries directly onto a non-stick baking sheet. Arrange your fries in a single layer and don’t overcrowd, otherwise they will never crisp up.
3. Bake for 12 minutes, then flip the fries so they can cook on all sides. I find the easiest way to flip them is with a metal spatula. Section by section, scoop up about ten fries and flip them with a quick turn of the wrist.
4. Bake for 10 to 15 more minutes, or until the fries are crispy. Don’t worry if the edges are a little bit brown; they will taste more caramelized than burnt.
