The Ultimate Cheeseburger Recipe with Bacon & Rosemary Fries
Welcome to the States! The hamburger may well be from Europe, but it was the Americans who turned this humble sandwich into a comfort food phenomenon.
And when it comes to burgers, this one takes the biscuit (or bacon!). It combines a juicy British beef patty with melty cheese, burger sauce, crispy bacon and a buttery-soft brioche bun. Polish it off with rosemary fries and a crisp gem lettuce salad.
