    All the time. Infact I love being in the kitchen so much we have the builder in for the next 3 weeks putting an extension on the house to extend our kitchen as the existing one is a tad on the small side.

    I hate all these prepackaged, microwaveable crap. Fine it's alright if your in a hurry but alot of the biggish type ones take between 8-15 mins to cook probably and I can usually russle up something in that time.

    But if you've got 45 mins to an hour to spare. :yum: The things I could do. :)

    Mincing up left over sunday roasts and putting them in a shepards pie format works quite well. Reheatable as well.

    i do something similar ...the leftovers go in the blender to mush it all as fine as possible. bit of bread added for binding ...
    pat out into burger shapes ...dust with flour ...fry!
    not just a great snack but great with chips for a meal. can freeze them as well.

    Ooh, I think I may well just try that.

    Normally I just use chopped onion, and a bit of chili and garlic sauce and beaten egg to bind. IF carrots make it better than wow:)

    I like leftover boiled potatoes, cos you can chop em into rough chunks, shallow fry, have with ham, bacon, beans and egg. Can't go wrong...

    That's a meal in Germany.

    When you're shallow-frying, put some leek or onion in too, along with the potato and bacon.

    It's brunch in canada, so long as you add toast, french toast and pancakes with syrup. maybe some cereal and fresh fruit.

    the good thing is it doesn't taste of carrot!
    i used to use egg white for binding then someone suggested white bread ...it gives the burger a nicer texture.

    Egg is my family styley, but coating a burger with bread crumbs for a crispy texture is nice.

    I love cooking. Home made salmon fishcakes were the dish of yesterday :yum: But I'm roasting a chicken today. Not quite so exciting. But still tasty...

    My dad used to make nice homemade burgers, but he stopped for some reason :(

    Red meat and anything fried is all rather discusting and makes me want to gag just thinking about it. (Which makes me wonder why I clicked this thread in the first place, not to mention even bother replying to it) :p
