Recipe: Chicken burgers with fresh sage

Makes four burgers

Prep:

Cook:

Serves:

    Passover brings back memories of holidaying in France and coming down to a buffet breakfast laden with croissants and pastries while clutching my box of matzah. However, if you are staying at home, you can turn breakfast into a treat by making Matzah Brei.

    All you will need is four pieces of matzah, 125ml water, four eggs, salt and pepper, 50g butter and two tbsp of kosher for Passover vegetable oil. In a bowl, break the matzah into bite-sized pieces. Bring the water to the boil and pour over the matzah. Quickly toss the matzah and then drain. In a bowl, beat the eggs with a little salt and pepper, add the matzah. Melt the butter and oil in a large pan, fry the matzah - probably in two batches - on both sides until slightly crisp. Serve with maple syrup.

    Below is another delicious, quick and easy recipe for chicken burgers with fresh sage that the whole family can enjoy. Using fresh herbs makes all the difference to the flavour and the mix of thigh and breast meat keeps them lovely and moist.
