Kids will love these hearty little burgers, and we know that everyone will feel satisfied with these burgers for lunch. Adding the Spiced Gouda is perfect for use on this burger, as the cheese immediately has light aniseed flavour, minty finish. You will be able to put this recipe on your weekly rotation, if you have teenagers in the home, you may need to triple this recipe, for lunch boxes!

Groundwork – 10 minutes of preparation time 10 minutes of cooking time

Serves 4 (it is so easy to change quantities for serving more)



For the Burger

120g Alexandrina Mt Magnificent Spiced Gouda this should be 12 slices

6 brown bread rolls,

6 turkey rissoles,

salad of your choice – we use cucumbers and tomatoes

condiments of your choice – we use home style tomato sauce 



use a cheese knife to slice the Mt Magnificent Spiced Gouda. 

use a bread knife, slice each of the brown bread rolls in half.

use a non stick fry pan to cook the rissoles for about 4-5 each side or until cooked through, drain on paper towel until cool.

To arrange the burger, take the base of the bread roll, add the turkey rissole, lay the slices of Alexandrina Spiced Gouda onto the rissole. If you are making these for a main meal, you could pop the burger into the oven, and grill for 1-2 minutes to ensure the cheese is melted.

add the salad of your choice, on top.

add the condiments of your choice to the top of the bread roll, and place the lid on top of the burger, use a short skewer to hold the burger together.

repeat this step until all six burgers are made and serve into a lunch box with an ice pack to keep food safe while on the journey to the classroom.
