Why not save on the takeaway this weekend and make it at home with some of Iceland’s fakeway options. It will no doubt save your waistline and your wallet!

Five Guys Burger

First up is our Five Guys burger fakeaway, using Iceland’s Extra Tasty Quarter Pounders.

  • Get some brioche buns and fry off in a pan slightly.  
  • Smash up your Extra Tasty Quarter Pounders
  • Take the buns off the heat and fry off your burgers
  • Add some cheese squares to burgers in the pan to melt them off.
  • Once cooked, start to stack up your burger with all your toppings and extras you fancy (i.e. onions, lettuce and tomatoes)
  • Serve with salt and pepper chips and enjoy!

    Top tip: wrap up the completed burger and pop it into the air fryer for 2 minutes!
