Sam's Cheesy Surprise Burgers
These super tasty Thermomix burgers were the main event of the kids dinner party our nephew Sam created for us in episode 147 of The 4 Blades podcast. We just love the cooking technique and the flavours produced by these super simple and delicious burgers. If you try these once we reckon they will end up on the meal rotation for a long time.
