And Nothing Else Matters & Giveaway


Remember THIS post?.  Well Em is here and she's sharing a recipe with us AND offering a cool Giveaway!
I had the privilege of meeting Em in real life last weekend - Go to THIS post to read all about our girls day out.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi everyone! I am beyond excited to be here with you all today! I absolutely love Nicole and her fantastic blog. She is as sweet and helpful as she comes across in her posts, always willing to give me advice and help when I email her! So you can imagine how thrilled I was when Nicole asked me to guest post on her awesome blog! I have one of my favorite easy recipes to share with you, but first let me properly introduce myself.


My name is Em and I blog over at And Nothing Else Matters

I am a happily married mum of two from Australia. I live 5 hours and 17 minutes door to door from Miss Mommy herself, yep I checked it out on google maps! Yep totally star struck I admit it proudly.

The hubby joined the Air Force last year so i am navigating the new world of being a defence wife. I blog about the highs and lows and all the fun in between of juggling marriage and motherhood with distance and demands. 

I love discovering new blogs and getting to know the awesome people behind them, so come on over and say hi! 

I love to sew, make, create and cook with (and of course sometimes without!) my babies. The recipe I have for you today is one of my kids all time faves, Mini Cheeseburgers. Yum!

Here's what you will need
500g minced/ground beef
1/2 an onion finely diced
1/2 carrot grated - I am all for sneaking extra veg into my kids whenever I can
1 egg
1 tablespoon tomato sauce/ketchup
1 tablespoon barbecue sauce
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
Salt and pepper
Flour for coating the patties

To Serve
6 large burger buns
sliced cheese
Bacon - optional
1/2 onion finely sliced - optional
Your choice of sauce and/or mustard

Got everything? Awesome lets get cooking.

Put all your ingredients into a large bowl and combine. Easiest way is with you hands. Don't forget to take off your rings first. Divide the combined mince into 12 even sized patties. Coat each patty in flour.


Heat up your fry pan with a light layer of cooking oil.

 

 Grab out a large round cookie cutter and cut out two mini buns from each large one. You should get 12.


Don't waste all the offcuts of bun, pop into the freezer to use for stuffing's etc.


Once the patties are half done, add the bacon and onion to the pan.


 While that's cooking away pop cheese on the buns. As much or as little as you like.


By now you are probably getting thirsty so fill up your pineapple with loads of ice and top it with coke. What you don't drink out of a pineapple cup? Oops my bad, but you don't know what your missing. For real.


Now comes the fun part, assemble those bad boys. I like to top mine with tomato sauce/ketchup and french's yellow mustard. Can't beat it.


Don't they look fantastic?!


And for your viewing pleasure, one cute little girl with her mouth chock full of cheeseburger.


And for being such awesome people, if you follow Miss Mommy you couldn't be anything else, I have an awesome little giveaway for you. Now I love whoopie pies, so what better to share with you all.
