This recipe will work well with any soft buns. James has used our in store bakery brioche buns to add a touch of sweetness. Why not pop in store to give them a try?


Top it off:

James has added some soft creamy mozzarella to his burgers to balance the sweetness of the relish. Mix up your toppings with gherkins, jalapenos, sour cream or different cheeses such as Roquefort, cheddar or a soft goat's cheese.
