Homemade Burgers

Homemade Burgers

Using the same ingredients as for the meatballs instead of rolling into balls I flattened into burgers.


For the burgers

700g mince(d) beef
salt & pepper
1 teaspoon worchestershire sauce
3 tablespoons herbes de provence
1 teaspoon mustard
2 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon chilli purée (optional)

8 burger buns/16 slices of bread
4 tblsp ketchup
4 tblsp mayonnaise
4 medium tomatoes, sliced
2 large onions, sliced into half rings
1 tblsp olive oil


1.In a large mixing bowl add all the ingredients
2.Mix together thoroughly
3.Roll the mixture into a big ball
4.Divide the mixture into eight
5.Roll each 8th into a ball
6.Using a small saucer mould the ball into a patty, about 2 – 3 cm thick
7.In a large griddle pan on a high heat cook the burgers
well done – 10 mins each side
medium – 6 mins each side
rare - 3 mins each side

While the burgers are cooking

1.Mix the ketchup and mayonnaise together, spread onto the top sides of the burger buns.
2.In a small frying pan heat the olive oil
3.Add the onions and cook until just softening

Make up your burgers with the onions and tomatoes et voilà. Add lettuce, gherkins and cheese if you want a mega burger feast.

I served with a light salad, but you could always go for the whole burger dinner and serve with french fries.

Serves : 8 burgers
Preparation : 10 mins
Cooking time : 10 - 20 mins
