Meaty, cheesy and oh-so indulgent, these burgers topped with a rich and satisfying Red Leicester sauce are everything you want for a luxurious, decadent meal for two. Plus, they take just 30 minutes to rustle up (plus some chilling time) so you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time with bae.
Crispy pork belly with pak choi
For a luxurious and impressive dinner that's bursting with flavour and elegance, try this Chinese-spiced pork belly with pak choi recipe. Sticky, spicy and tempting, all you need is a little basmati rice on the side and you've got yourself a sophisticated, grown-up dinner for next to no effort. Win!
Bacon-wrapped cod with baked Parmesan risotto
Wrapping the cod in bacon may make this dish seem like a fancy main course from a sophisticated restaurant, but it's actually a handy hack to make sure your fish stays deliciously moist during cooking! Not to mention adding a rich, smoky flavour…
What's more, there's no need to stand over the hob stirring your risotto for up to an hour. If you've got you're oven on, start your risotto off on the hob then pop it in the oven until it's done. You'll get a delicious, crispy crust, too!
