Friday night is often treat night in our house. In more affluent times that meant a couple of sirloin steaks, or maybe T-bone or even fillet.

I stopped buying steaks from supermarkets because of far too many disappointments and now would only buy from a butcher. With one exception. Aberdeen Angus from the Waitrose butcher counter. Expensive but practically guaranteed to satisfy.

These days we often pick up their AA half pounder beefburgers. But you have to be careful. On the meat shelves they offer two in a pack for £3.99, so £2 each.

But at the butcher counter they offer them for £1.19 each. There may be a slight variation in weight but not that much!

They are absolutely yummy.

I make take your advice on that Danny, I'm not a big burger fan, I hate anything mushy (Like McDs) - it has to still look like real meat. Hence, when we do have burgers, it' usually from the butchers, but I'll give Waitrose a go.

Give them a try, Janet, and let us know what you think. They are half pounders and so thicker than the average patty.

I cook them for 16 mins (8 per side) under our grill/broiler (electric) at a setting of 7 from a max of 9. Preheated for just one minute.

Normally you would want mince meat to be well done but often there is a red juice residue from these. But they are cooked through (no pink in the middle) and we have never fallen ill !!

all the supermarkets pull that price trick, its a bit like the buy 3 packs for £10 meat offers when its cheaper to buy them individually if you just look carefully
