Hello Fresh | Chorizo Burgers with Red Onion Marmalade

So last night I made the second of the three meals that Hello Fresh send over for me to prepare. If you haven't read my post on the Classic Box from Hello Fresh it can be found here. The first meal, Risotto with Summer Vegetables can be found here.

So I decided last night I'd make the Chorizo Burgers with Red Onion Marmalade. I really fancied a burger on the barbecue but I still went for the oven/grill option as I prepared everything inside.

Here's Head Chef Patrick's recipe for Chorizo and Pinenut Burgers with Red Onion Marmalade!

Oh my god, I can't even explain how delicious these burgers were. They were a little oily/fatty but I believe that was due to the chorizo as the oil was bright orange/red like the chorizo. But other than that. The taste and texture of the burgers were delicious.
You may have noticed that I didn't put the pinenuts in, this is because I lost them! Oh! Go knows how, maybe they were accidentally thrown away. I think if the pine nuts were included then it would have added a lovely crunch texture to the burgers.
The onion marmalade were sweet yet tangy with slightly crunchy, yum!
