  • Mild chili powder

Directions: Mix all the dressing ingredients and season.
Mix the mince, garlic salt, chili powder, and lots of black pepper. Make into balls, then use clean hands to squish down into very flat patties.
Rub some oil on all of the burgers and season. Heat a large, heavy frying pan until hot, then fry the burgers for 2 minutes on each side. Add a slice of cheese and a couple of pieces of pastrami to each burger, then cover the pan to let the cheese melt and the pastrami warm through.
To assemble, spread dressing generously on both sides of the buns. Add a spoonful of sauerkraut to the bottoms, followed by the burger, cheese, pastrami, and some dill pickles.

Campfire Cones

Campfire Cones

For this recipe, you will need:

  •  Mini marshmallows
  •  Banana slices
  • Chocolate chips
  • Rolos
  • Mini Reece's Peanut Butter Cups
  • Roughly broken Oreo cookies
  • Chopped nuts
  • Sugar strands

Directions: Wrap each waffle cone in aluminum foil, leaving plenty of foil open at the top so it can be closed over when the waffle cones are filled.

Fill the cones with the ingredients of your choice. They will melt down, so pack the cones full. The marshmallows/chocolate may stick to the foil, so it’s a good idea to sprinkle Oreo pieces and/or nuts on top to prevent sticking.

Fold the foil over the tops of the cones, so they’re well wrapped.

Place on a hot barbecue for 3-5 minutes, then leave to cool for a couple of minutes before unwrapping and eating!
