A burger by Morrisons has been voted the best supermarket burger of 2019, beating burgers made by brands such as M&S.
The burger, which went through blind taste testing as part of the BBC Good Food’s Summer Taste Awards, received top marks in categories for juiciness, high quality meat and great beefy taste. The unique burger patties include bone marrow, which adds an intense flavour and ensures they stand apart from competitors.
The BBC wrote about the Morrisons burgers:
‘If you prefer a saltier burger, this one’s for you. Beefy and well-seasoned, bone marrow provides an added boost of flavour. The judges also loved the size, thickness and juicy texture.’
Joshua Brockbank, Burger Buyer at Morrisons, said of the win: ‘We’re really proud of our burgers which have been created with British ingredients. Adding bone marrow gives the burger a rich and juicy flavour and we’re confident our customers will love them.’
The best news about the delicious Morrisons burgers is perhaps the price; the burgers cost £3 for a two pack, and are also included in the ‘two packs for £5’ offer, which spans Morrisons summer food range. The range is perfect for BBQ season, and features a number of other summer favourites to accompany your bestselling, award-winning burger patties.
The Morrisons burger was not the only supermarket offering to win big in the BBC Good Food’s Summer Taste Awards. Sainsbury’s’ ‘Love Your Veg! The Smoky ‘Jack’ quarter pounder,’ won this year’s ‘Best Vegan Burger’ category. The Sainsbury’s vegan burger costs £2.50 for a pack of two, and uses jackfruit plant as its meat alternative. The best veggie burger went to Aldi’s Deli sweet potato burger, which sells for a bargainous £1.49 for two.
Once you’ve picked your perfect burger (meat, veggie, or vegan), the BBC’s awards then recommends wrapping them in a bun from Aldi. The Specially Selected brioche burger buns, £0.79 for four, were picked as the very best burger bun thanks to their soft, buttery and sweet taste and texture.
Roll on BBQ season!
