This recipe is seriously tasty and a lot better than shop bought burgers. These are really customisable and you can really add/take away ingredients to your own tastes. I made these really quickly before our tea, not in advance but they do freeze really well if you’re using fresh mince. With the toppings/combinations the world is literally your oyster!
Here I had them with wedges (alas not homemade – short on time!) but any combo of bun/fries/chips/wedges will be fantastic. I always have my burger bun-less but take your pick of bun options too! You could really make these healthy by using turkey mince, or spicy by adding your favourite flavours.
Here’s what you’ll need:
For three to four burgers
250g pack of Mince (beef/pork/turkey)
Half a small onion, sliced
2-3 slices of bread turned into breadcrumbs
Salt & Pepper
Cheese for the centres
1 – Break up the mince in a bowl.
2 – Add the egg and breadcrumbs.
3 – Mix well together and then add the sliced onion
4 – Season well and mix together throughly. If you’re using other spices etc add them at this stage.
5 – Shape the buns on a tray. Make a small well in the centre of each burger and pop in some cheese. Any will do – mozzarella is perfect! Cover the cheese with the burger mix.
6 – Place on to a griddle pan or frying pan and cook for about 10-12 mins.
That’s it! Very simple but really tasty. I think it’s the freshness of the ingredients and flavour combinations. This is the first time I’ve made these in a while and they still taste great! Let us know which flavour combinations you decide to go for! Enjoy!
