Fashion stylist and TV presenter Jules Sebastian has shared her simple recipe for a burger platter, and the mum-of-two said it’s the ‘perfect’ solution for fussy eaters.
The 40-year-old said she is a big fan of ‘plattering’, because not only is it good for picky eaters like her two children, but it’s also a ‘great way to encourage kids to eat the food they have plated for themselves’.
‘This looks far more impressive than the skills required,’ Jules posted on Instagram.
’10/10 would do it again.’

So what do Jules and her young family do to make the platters?
First of all, she said you need to get a large wooden platter to put everything on it. Jules’s platter is from MCM House.
‘Today, we are plattering hamburgers, because I don’t know about you guys, but in my household, everyone likes something different on their burger,’ Jules said.
The mum said she typically makes the burger platter for a weekend dinner or a Sunday lunch, when the kids want a bit of a treat but she still wants to cook from home.
Jules (pictured) said she loves the recipe as you only have to cook one thing – the patties – and then everything else is just ‘prep and chop and place’
The first step of the meal is assemble the meat and bread.
‘I start with the burgers and these brioche buns from Woolies,’ Jules said.
‘The best part about this recipe is you only have to cook one thing – the patties – and then everything else is just prep and chop and place.’
Jules cooked the burgers on the barbecue on one side and then the other, before she placed the cheese on top of the patties to melt it.
‘I am using two different types of cheese. We’ve got that normal vintage cheese and delicious slices of that cheddar yellow one,’ Jules said.
She added that you can use whatever cheese works best for you.

Once the burgers and cheese are cooked, Jules said she places them on a sheet of baking paper on top of her platter.
She then arranged the brioche buns towards the back end of the platter and put some sauces in circular dishes on the other side of the platter.
‘You can use whatever sauce of your choice, but you know us, we have everything in our fridge,’ Jules said.
On this occasion, the mum laid out burger sauce, barbecue sauce and aioli.
‘Then, all you need to do is lay out your dishes of veg,’ Jules said.
This time, she has opted for chopped up beetroot, tomato, baby cos lettuce, pickles and red onion.
Jules also added some hot chips to the family-friendly dish.
‘Guys, this tastes incredible. Do this at home,’ the mum said when she tried it.

Jules’s cooking video was a huge success on Instagram, with many saying they can’t wait to try it with their own families:
‘I love this. Thanks for an amazing recipe,’ one woman posted.
‘I love the way you present your food. I’m doing this tomorrow night,’ another person added.
This isn’t the first cooking video Jules has shared in recent months easier.
Previously, the mum-of-two has tried her hand at everything from lasagne to breakfast frittatas.
Jules also shared her tips and tricks to help her two children to eat healthier.
‘I’m a big fan of hiding vegetables,’ she told FEMAIL.
‘Even on Monday night, I whizzed together all of this carrot, broccoli and onion and hid it in a spaghetti bolognese.
‘They all hoovered it up without even realising there might be something they didn’t like.’
Jules also said she makes sure to give the two boys smoothies – which they love – but instead of just putting fruit in them, she also packs them full of veggies and milk, too.
‘I’ll throw an avocado in there and try to make the process of eating healthily as fun as possible,’ she said.
She will involve the boys in the kitchen and keep feeding them something they think they don’t like until they start eating it.
‘Keep putting something they like on a plate and eventually they will eat it,’ she said.
She added that being healthy is about more than a good diet and making sure the boys run around outside.
‘Yes, I like to make sure they have all the major food groups ticked off in their lunchboxes, but I think good health is also about limited screen time, happiness and good sleep.’
