Aldi teams up with Dumfries chef Fraser Cameron to help customers 'beef up' their burgers at home

Are your lockdown meals lacking inspiration? Do you crave restaurant style cookery?
Well, you’re in luck because supermarket Aldi has teamed up with Scottish chef Fraser Cameron to celebrate the return of its sell-out Gourmet Galloway Beef Burger, with four new expertly crafted recipes to help you ‘beef up’ your burgers at home.
Made using prime cuts of Scotch Galloway Beef expertly seasoned for a deliciously meaty taste, the gluten free Gourmet Galloway Burgers have been created in partnership with Scotbeef and are available in Scottish stores now as a Specialbuy at Aldi’s everyday amazing prices; just £2.19 for a pack of two.
Galloway Cattle Society chef ambassador, Fraser Cameron, who usually works at The Globe Inn in Dumfries, has created four recipes for people to try at home. Whether it is a healthy mid-week meal, indulgent restaurant quality recipe, BBQ favourite or activity to keep the kids entertained, Fraser has created something that everyone can enjoy and create easily at home.

Fraser Cameron said: “I love cooking with Galloway beef because it is such a prime local product. The flavour quality and character of the meat is second to none. The beef has a consistent marbling through it which creates this amazing flavour, and as a chef I can’t ask for any more than full on flavour!
“The inspiration for the burgers has come from a couple of places. The BBQ burger has been inspired by sunny afternoons enjoying BBQs with family and friends, the gourmet burger is similar to what we serve on the lunch menu at the restaurant. The monster kids burger is designed around maximum family fun – who says you shouldn’t play with your food?!”
The Galloway is one of the oldest and purest of Scotland’s native cattle breeds, named after the Galloway region in Scotland where it originated during the 17th century. Despite being widely recognised as one of the best tasting and healthier meats1, Galloway Beef isn’t yet widely available in supermarkets.
Scott McKinnon of Klondyke Farms in Thornhill who farms Galloway Cattle, said: “Galloways thrive in Scotland’s natural landscape and the herbs and wild grasses they eat add to that wonderful, rich flavour. Our cattle are all quality assured by both the Galloway Cattle Society and by Quality Meat Scotland, proving world class standard, from field to plate.”
Only the finest, naturally reared beef from selected Scottish farms can be called Scotch Beef PGI, known across the world for its superior taste, quality, and traceability.
Graham Nicolson, Group Buying Director, Aldi Scotland said: “Galloway Beef is some of the best in the world and we’re pleased to be working with Scotbeef and the Galloway Cattle Society again this year to bring our sell-out Gourmet Galloway Burger back to our shelves.
“At Aldi, we’re fully committed to working hand in hand with our Scottish suppliers to bring the best of Scotland’s larder to our customers. With the public continuing to stay at home and look for new, inventive meals to enjoy with their families, we’re confident that the Gourmet Galloway Burger will hit the spot.”
The Specialbuy Gourmet Galloway Burger is on sale now and available from Aldi’s 91 Scottish stores for only £2.19 for a 340g pack containing two burgers.
