Hmm...got a bit of a dilemma here folks, and its all my stupid fault.

We used to have a microwave in the kitchen but for some reason its gone, I dunno if it was broke, or someones moving out and they took it back, but anyway, today it was gone...

I just nipped out to the shop to buy a quick snack & bought a Microwave Rustlers Burger, completely forgetting there was no microwave and it quite clearly says on the box "MUST MICROWAVE!" so I feel a bit stupid now. Do you think it would be ok if I stuck it under the grill for a while??

p.s. I understand Rustlers burgers are full of greasy fat, salt etc but what can I say, Im an unhealthy fool but Im hungry :sad:

Should be fine, make sure you do quite a low heat to make sure it cooks through to the centre before burning on the outside

I'd say give it a go - Only because I am interested in the results.

Also, I would rather eat cardboard than a Rustlers "burger".

If you're in halls could you not just pop next door to your friends? I'm sure it'll be fine under the grill though.

Unfortunately I dont live in halls. Im in a shared house (with non-students which is even more depressing). I miss halls!! :sad:

I'll stick it under the grill, low heat as suggested, and post the final verdict

******UPDATE*******

Final Verdict = Mingin' :sad:

Haha, I feel that would have been the case anyway. Regardless of whether you microwaved or grilled it!

Better luck next time.

I know this is old but... It's not a matter of making sure it's fully cooked. It's already cooked. You're just reheating this little bap of vile.

I know this is from 2009 but I still wanted to say this:

It's 2014 and Rustlers are £2.20 in the tesco near me.
500g of minced beef is around £4 (cheaper if you shop around or buy in bulk - 3 for £10 etc).
500g of minced beef will make 4 monster burgers or 6 normal sized burgers. Just add and egg and a pinch of salt and pepper, make them into patties (thinner than you think because they will shrink and rise) and freeze them on a metal or plastic tray, then transfer to a plastic bag and store in the freezer. Whenever you want a burger just cook in the oven on 200 degrees for about 15-20 minutes. Or if you wanted you could cook them first then freeze and defrost/reheat in the microwave.

6 burger buns are about £1 and you can freeze them as well. That burger cheese is about 50p for like 10 slices and it lasts forever in the fridge.

There you have 4-6 burgers for about £6, much cheaper, healthier and tastier than rustlers and takes no time at all to prepare if you do a whole batch and pre-freeze them.

P.S. You can add other flavours to the raw burger mix to make amazing creations, chilli (fresh or sauce), dried herbs, mustard, cheese, bbq sauce, tiny pieces of chorizo, curry spices. You can also obviously add any salad or sauce on top, try a chilli burger with doritos and guacamole or a curry burger with mint and yogurt served with rice.

The possibilities are endless!

I did the same thing - bought a microwavable burger when I only have an electric oven. I put it in the oven for ten minutes on 100 degrees Celsius (no preheat - literally just turned on) top grill, separated and it was fine. Buns were hot and beef burger was warm. I put the cheese on after. If I did it again I might put the beef on for a couple mins longer but I'd take the buns out. Btw this was a rustlers burger too. :-)

I did the same - buying microwavable burger when all I have is an oven atm. I put my rustlers burger in the oven for 10mins, separate (no preheat or anything just straight in) and it was fine. Buns were hot beef burger was warm. I might put the beef burger on a couple more mins but apart from that is was fine. :-)
