Simple Midweek Meal – Rustlers Burger Hacking Challenge

As you may have read I am on the search for more simplicity, on of the ways I am doing this is with our meal planning. To simplify we are having at least one midweek meal that I can just put in the oven or reheat. We have found that by doing this we are less likely to look for the takeaway menus which across the year can save you a small holiday (I know which I would prefer). So when I heard that Britmums where having Rustler Burger Hacking Challenge, I knew I had to take part.

If I am honest I hadn’t considered Rustlers Burgers for one of my ‘oven/reheat’ evenings. But I am really glad we got this chance to try them as I now know that they contain quality chicken that is fully traceable to the farm it was originally source from. As much as we are trying for easier meals we do still want to generally eat good quality food so a good quality chicken burger will please the parents and children of this house.

One thing we enjoy about a burger evening is that we can all have slightly different toppings that keep the whole family happy, I also like that I can sneak some vegetables on to my children’s plate and it all be eaten.

Our Hack

I went with toppings I enjoy when ordering a burger in a restaurant. With the burgers been so quick to get really I had a little more time to get creative.


The children had slightly different variations of this. One went with no avocado, another with the salad on the side and another deciding to eat each part of the burger separately (don’t you love a two year old).

We served ours with homemade chips (see below for tip) and coleslaw which is another family favourite.

Budget and time-saving tip

We all buy potatoes for the Sunday roast or the pie and mash. If we are honest we are likely to only use half the bag and the majority of the time the other half goes to waste. To get homemade chips with your burgers quickly, next time you have your roast or pies cut the other half in to chips, par-boil them, shake and freeze. You then have homemade chips to throw into the oven when you need them.

The whole family approved of this meal so will be on our midweek meal plan again sometime soon. When I say approved my son who is 7 asked if we had more as he thought they were so tasty.

Why don’t you try the Rustlers Burger Hacking Challenge for yourself and have an easy night getting a family meal on the table! Available to purchase in Tesco.
