<< clears throat >>

I recently discovered spar sells 'burger pasties' on the hot food counter.

These delightful gobfuls of heaven are basically a burger, topped with cheese, tomato sauce and gerkins then lovingly encased in greggs sausage roll type pastry.

Heaven is the only way to describe these things. Heaven in a crumb flying, greasy frenzy.

Alas, we don't have a spar nearby, so I fully intend on re creating a homemade version.

<< takes bow >>

I remember buying those with my dinner money at school 15 years ago! They were amazing!

DoreenLethal Wed 09-Sep-15 16:24:18

That sounds vile.

I was with you until I got to gherkins.

JuanPotatoTwo Wed 09-Sep-15 16:25:49

Or should that be "I was with you until you got to gherkins"? Either way - I bloody hate gherkins smile

So let me get this clear - it's a patty of meat (of indeterminate origin and pedigree) stuffed into a shell of fat and flour and embellished with machine made cheese flavoured substitute and skanking vinegary pickles? Am I right?

I'll just have a coffee, thanks.......... grin

AdoraBell Wed 09-Sep-15 16:38:35

envy <boak> I'll settle for a coffee too, glad you enjoyed it though OP

TheThreeCheesesOfTheApocalypse Wed 09-Sep-15 16:38:59

Yes, you are right.

And the best, damned discovery since wotsit and nutella butties grin

GummyBunting Wed 09-Sep-15 16:43:47

Wotsits and nutella butties?!?!?!?!

What?
Nope.

FarFromAnyRoad Wed 09-Sep-15 16:44:39

OP you are a deeply unwell woman. There is help out there, I promise

grin

squoosh Wed 09-Sep-15 16:45:22

That sounds like perfect hangover food.

BearFoxBear Wed 09-Sep-15 16:46:31

My mum used to make these when I was wee - they were wrong but sooo good! We still take the piss out of her for that culinary abomination smile

AmpleRaspberries Wed 09-Sep-15 16:55:03

I feel I need this in my life!

Disclaimer: I'm pregnant and currently experiencing all manner of unhealthy food cravings. In fact, if you could add some potato in there somewhere it's probably all I would eat. Sadly, no Greggs where I live sad

AmpleRaspberries Wed 09-Sep-15 16:56:22

Just seen its the spar. We have one of those about 2 minutes walk away. * Dons coat, gets purse *

LookAtAllThesePhucksIGive Wed 09-Sep-15 16:57:09

The only way these could be any better than they sound is if they're made with fake cheese.

LittleMissIntrovert Wed 09-Sep-15 16:58:14

Cooplands do something similar, didn't know greggs did them though.

We got one on holiday in Whitby but Cooplands seems to be a North Yorkshire thing, not West Yorkshire sad

squoosh Wed 09-Sep-15 16:58:55

The only way they could be better is if they were presented on a silver platter by Henry Cavill.

BabyGanoush Wed 09-Sep-15 16:59:12

I always wonder who eats thise things grin

BabyGanoush Wed 09-Sep-15 17:00:48

Just thinking about if gives me heartburn!

catfordbetty Wed 09-Sep-15 17:04:22

Thank you for sharing this and thank God Spar has a nearest store finder on their website. Mine is 1.3 miles and is on a bus route. Do all Spars sell these? Should I phone to check?

squoosh Wed 09-Sep-15 17:06:00

Only certain Spars sell pastry encased, artery clogging food. Best phone ahead to avoid bitter disappointment.

Sgtmajormummy Wed 09-Sep-15 17:26:28

Sounds like those SPAM battered fritters you can still find in some chipshops. Not that I go looking for them, of course...
