The weather has been great so far this summer, but now the unpredictable rain has set in.  We still want the smoky flavour of BBQ even if I can’t persuade Mr Glam to stand in the wet to cook it.

BBQ Sauce burgers are the answer.  Good quality lean mince mixed with chopped shallots and sweet, smoky Stokes BBQ sauce generously spooned into the meat and massaged well to make a fabulous, flavourful burger.  Team that with charred corn, fresh tomatoes and a Stokes Bloody Mary Sauce to give depth and fire.  A perfect accompaniment to a beautiful burger.

BBQ Burgers (makes 2 or 4 burgers)


  • 400g Good quality beef mince
  • 1 shallot (finely chopped)
  • 3 tablespoons Stoke BBQ sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 200g Taleggio cheese (sliced into 8)
  • 2 or 4 Focaccia rolls (I used tomato focaccia rolls)
  • salad leaves and sliced cucumber if desired


Step 1
Place the mince in a medium sized mixing bowl, add the shallots and mix well
Step 2
Add the BBQ sauce and using your hands mix the sauce through the meat, squeezing the meat through your hands
Step 3
Form into patties, pressing the meat together well, season both sides and brush with oil
Step 4
Place in a griddle or frying pan over a moderate heat, for 10 minutes before flipping over. If you are forming the mixture into 2 burgers rather than 4, they will take 15 minutes each side. There's sugar in the BBQ sauce which will burn if the heat is too high
Step 5
Place 2 slices of taleggio cheese on the cooked side of each burger whilst the underside cooks for a further 10 minutes.
Step 6
Cut the focaccia rolls in half and toast the bottom half. Place the top half cut side down in the pan after the burgers have been removed for about 5 minutes
Step 7
Place the salad and cucumber on the bottom layer, top with the burger a little of the salsa, recipe below and place the top of the focaccia roll on top. Serve with fries or salad.

Chargrilled Corn Bloody Mary Salsa


  • 2 Fresh Corn Cobs
  • 1 Shallot (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 Pointed red pepper (finely Chopped)
  • 1 Red chilli, adjust to taste (finely chopped)
  • 3 Tomatos (Core removed and finely chopped)
  • 5 tablespoons Stokes Bloody Mary Sauce


Step 1
Charred Corn Cob
Place the corn cobs in a hot heavy bottomed frying pan or griddle. Turn as the corn chars
Step 2
Put all the other ingredients except the Bloody Mary Sauce, in a bowl and mix together
Step 3
Once the corn is charred, not burnt, on all sides, remove it from the pan and standing the cobs on end slice down the length with a sharp knife taking the kernels off the cob. Mix these into the tomato mix with the Bloody Mary Salsa

Stokes Sauces sent me the sauces without any obligation to review them, I was delighted  as I use them regularly at home and all they are popular with all the Glams
