  1. In a bowl add the Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt and pepper in a large bowl and gently mix for 10 seconds
  2. Now add the mince and mix for 60 seconds
  3. Break an egg in to the bowl as this is your binding issue and mix well
  4. Let the mince sit for around 5 minutes
  5. Form your hamburger patties.
  6. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  7. Add the burgers and cook until desired temperature, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.

Candied Bacon Recipe

Its up to you if you want to make sweet bacon, normal bacon tastes just as good with this

  1. Fry bacon in a hot pan until crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. Set aside.
  2. Combine the maple syrup, and brown sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Return bacon to the skillet, brush with the glaze, and turn. Cook glazed side down for 2 minutes over low heat. Glaze, turn, and cook for an additional 2 minutes over low heat.
  4. Repeat until all of the glaze is used and serve immediately.

Finishing Prep

  1. Cut the donuts in half and lightly butter the cut sides
  2. Place the cut sides down on a very warm frying pan and keep until slightly crispy 
  3. Place burger patties on glazed donuts, as the buns.

My First Tantrum Doughnuts Visit (West End, Glasgow)


27 Old Dumbarton Road
Glasgow G3 8RD

V: 27th August 2017     W:

Child Friendly: Yes      Accepts: Cash & Card

Since the start of the year, I have seen many bloggers talk about this place and its been on my list to visit for ages.

I have a mega sweet tooth, and from what I heard was these are very sweet…..perfect!

I am never in this area normally on the train or in a car passing here, but today I was as I was going of brunch at a near by restaurant.

Tantrum have two locations on this street, but one is where the doughnuts are made and the other is where they sell them.

The Doughnuts :

6 in a box £13.50


What I got :

  • 2 x Chocolate Truffle
  • 1 x Candied Bacon and French Toast Glaze
  • 1 x Crème Brûlée
  • 1 x Salted Honey Glaze Brioche ring
  • 1 x Espresso Martini

Overall :

Well it took me a little time to try each one, and no before you ask I didn’t eat them all in the one sitting or one night.

The flavours of each one was very strong, and how it was described is exactly how it tasted.

I will be stopping by again to get some more, as these could easily become addictive.

See you soon Tantrum!

Pizza Punks (Glasgow) : Review

90 St Vincent Street

Pizza Punks is open:

Monday-Friday: 8am-1am
Saturday: 10am-1am
Sunday: 11am-1am

T: 0141 237 8020
W :

Visit Date : 2nd October 2016

At the time of writing this, Pizza Punks have only been open about just over a week.

There was a special invite where you could go to an exclusive preview the night before it opened to try a few things, but unfortunately I wasn’t one that was selected. So I decided to give it a shot this weekend and see what I missed.

I am a lover of all things Italian and one of my favourite foods is pizza, but it has to be done right.

Pizza Punks has been done up very rustic and fresh, minimalistic and has funky neon signs. The staff are very nice, and very attentive with cool t-shirts with puns on them….I will let you take a read at them when you go.


We placed our order but while we waited we ordered some Candied Bacon bacon for the table. I have never had this but since I have a sweet tooth, and “Candied” was in the name I thought why not.

This was very nice, you had the amazing bacon flavour with hints of sweet added to it which was a winner for me.


Candied Bacon : £3.00


Pizza Punks you don’t order pre-selected pizzas you get to make your own, but telling the waiter what base, and toppings you want. You get as many toppings as you like all for one cost which is great and cheaper than most of the restaurants in Glasgow that sell pizza.

Below is what I went for :

  • sourdough base
  • san marzano tomato(infused with garlic, oregano, basil and olive oil)
  • chipotle + chocolate pulled pork
  • pepperoni
  • Ayrshire bacon
  • Tuscan sausage
  • caramelised red onion
  • olives

When the pizza is brought to you its not pre-sliced, you get a proper pizza cutter to cut the pizza to the slice sizes you want.


The pizza was very nice, and I enjoyed every mouthful. The base was nice and thin, which is what I really like and is like the proper Italian bases.

The option to make your own with AS MANY toppings as you like is a great and unique way to sell, and I think they will do well from this and again at the great price of £9.00

Pizza : £9.00


This was very good, loads of chocolate and my first milkshake where I have had to eat it before drinking it.


I have to say this shake and also Byron’s are my two favourite places to get shakes in Glasgow.

Punk Milkshake (trip choc brownie) £6.00

Overall :

What a shocker I was mega full when I left, but I had a great time and really enjoyed my food. The atmosphere was good, everyone I looked at were enjoying it and their food. The music was just right, you didn’t need to shout over it, which is something I really hate doing.

Yes I would go again, as I really enjoyed it and the bacon mmmmmm

Do check this place out!

Till next time
