New Recipe: CBBC Burger

This recipe is what we like to call a Can’t Be Bothered Cooking (CBBC) recipe, a simple Mum-hack dinner because we understand it’s not always easy getting dinner on the table! There’s still a little cooking involved, however this really is our go-to when the week has gotten all-too-much. Although simple to make, it still provides all the nutrients you need to support a growing family and will leave you feeling more than satisfied.

We love putting a TNN twist on your favourite (not-so-healthy) meals – let us know what you’d like us to create next in the comments section!
