There’s something incredibly satisfying about biting into a juicy, flavour-packed burger. With National Burger Day just around the corner (August 31), it’s time to fire up the grill, gather your ingredients, and get ready to celebrate this iconic delight that has become a beloved staple in British cuisine. Whether you’re a fan of classic beef burgers, adventurous twists, or locally sourced ingredients, Dales Butchers has everything you need to make your National Burger Day a true gastronomic day to remember.

Crafting the Perfect Burger

The essence of a perfect burger lies in the harmony of its elements. Begin with a fresh and toasted bun, the foundation that holds everything together. Next comes the star of the show – the actual burger itself. Choose from our range of quality meats, each promising a burst of succulent flavour. Whether you prefer beef, chicken, pork, or lamb, Dales Butchers ensures that your burger is the heart of your burger creation.

Homemade Burger Recipe


500g Dales Butchers locally farmed minced beef
1 onion, finely chopped
1 egg
2 cloves garlic, crushed
Salt and black pepper to taste


In a bowl, combine the minced beef, chopped onion, crushed garlic, egg, salt, and black pepper.

Gently mix the ingredients until well combined, taking care not to overwork the mixture.

Divide the mixture into equal portions and shape them into burger patties.

Local Flavour

At Dales Butchers, National Burger Day isn’t just a celebration; it’s a commitment to providing you with the finest ingredients for your burger masterpiece. Our locally farmed meats are a testament to our dedication to quality.

Toppings & Condiments

Don’t forget to elevate your burger game with a tantalising array of toppings and condiments. From classic choices to creative twists, the possibilities are endless. Consider the timeless combination of lettuce, tomato, and onion for a refreshing crunch.

Add a slice of melted cheddar or blue cheese to take your burger to a new level of indulgence.

For a touch of smokiness, pile on some crispy Dales bacon.

And let’s not forget the tangy delights – a dollop of tangy barbecue sauce, zesty mayo, or a spoonful of spicy relish can transform an ordinary burger into a flavour explosion. Don’t be afraid to experiment with pickles, sautéed mushrooms, avocado slices, or even a fried egg for an extra dose of yum.

The secret to the perfect burger lies in the harmony of its components, so mix and match to create your ultimate burger masterpiece.
