It's burger night tonight!
We absolutely love Woolies' range of patties. The TASTE team's favourite make-it-yourself burger?
The ultimate thick burger patties toped with slices of Emmental cheese (slices are the best as they melt deliciously into the patty), a squirt of Woolies' absolutely fabulous burger mayo and all of this tucked in between slices of the utlitmate burger rolls (the ones with toasted sesame seeds).
In fact, at TASTE we love a good burger so much that we even have a great guide to hosting the perfect burger party.
