The Paddy Walsh product range – The Traditional Standard Spiceburger, Jumbo Spiceburger & Curryburger are all FULLY COOKED. This is an important factor when using any of the following recipes as the product just needs to be re-heated and are therefore not cooked from raw.

For best results, if the products are purchased frozen they should be left in the fridge overnight to chill before use.

The healthiest way to cook a Spiceburger is to grill, bake, microwave or toast – for the latter the Spiceburger needs to be placed into a toast bag before putting into the toaster and then toasted for 5 minutes on high from chilled. However, the Spiceburger can also be shallow or deep fried.

Whatever way you choose to cook and serve your Spiceburger remember that it is a 100% Irish beef product and only has 200 calories per standard Spiceburger.

For the purpose of the 5 Minute Snack Recipes Paddy suggests that the chilled Spiceburger or Curryburger is put into the microwave for 1 minute on high (just to ensure it is heated in the centre) and then to shallow fry OR grill on both side for 2 minutes. Paddy suggests that you cook the Spiceburger whole – as opposed to cutting it in half.*
