Spice Burger Recipe


UPDATE : Spice Burger is back on the menu – see here

Right so, terribly late with this but anyway. The news was out last week that the Spice Burger is no more. The firm that produces them (Walsh Family Foods) have gone out of business. In my meat eating days, I have to say I did partake of them but was never a fan. Don’t think I would have eaten them if I knew they contained “lip meat and lungs” as evidenced via Donncha’s Twitter


20 pence a pound for grotty ingredients like that? Wouldn’t feed that to a dog would you?

Anyway, there’s now the inevitable Facebook group to save the Spice Burger from extinction with 606 members. Due to Facebook’s closed wall I can’t get a link to it. You’ll have to believe me that there are people out there crazy enough to want this disgusting product back on the menu.

For those who would prefer not to eat lip meat and lungs, the Mirror publised a recipe for Spice Burgers on Friday and here it is.

  • 1lb of Mince (not too lean, with 3% fat for succulence)
  • Half cup of breadcrumbs
  • 1 onion
  • Parsley
  • Pinch of chilli
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • One egg
  • Flour
  • Seasoning (lips and lungs if you like)

Knead the mince, onion, parsley, and bredcrumbs together. Add in a little bit of nutmeg and chilli. Mix in egg and a little flour, again kneading. Fry with a small amount of oil until cooked and golden brown.

If you are in the chip shop business, just lump all the ingredients together and mash it about a bit and then incinerate for 5 minutes in very hot lard.

Can be served hot or cold. Have bucket nearby for vomit later.

Enjoy your Spice Burger!


  1. AJ, there is nothing wrong with lip meat and lungs, or any other aesthetically off-putting innards: If you are starving (as in bloated belly – think Biafra in the 60s) main thing is not to think about what you are eating. So if you really have to have a bought in burger (say from McDonalds) – just imagine yourself stranded in some god forsaken landscape after your plane has fallen out of the sky. Even I would have a burger any time before resorting to cannibalism.


  2. True, we tend not to think about what we’re eating but still . Glad I’ve forsaken meat for a long time now.
