THE BEEFY BOYS will be making a festive appearance on our television screens soon.

Founding member of the Hereford-based business Anthony 'Murf' Murphy will once more be cooking up burgers on BBC One's Saturday Kitchen, it has been revealed.

On December 23, Mr Murphy will be sharing the recipe of the much-loved Christmas Boy burger, giving viewers across the nation a look at one of the county’s most respected culinary creators in action.

The Yuletide dish consists of a bubble and squeak patty, a stuffing patty, a 12-day aged Hereford beef patty, jack cheese, cranberry sauce and pulled turkey in gravy with a pig-in-a-blanket to top it off.


This will not be the first time the Beefy Boys have been on camera this festive season, with their well-received Christmas advert amassing over 100,000 views within its first few hours online.

Speaking of their inspiration for the advert, Mr Murphy said: “Christmas adverts have become a bit of a genre themselves now, and they seem to get worse each year so we wanted to sort of poke fun at them and give the concept a bit of a Beefy Boys twist as well as put a smile on people’s faces.

“We pulled together a team of local talent including our production crew, actors, and Jake of Diamonds, who recorded the perfect Rick Astley cover for the advert.

“The whole project has been produced on a shoestring budget and we are so happy with the finished result.”
