Homemade Burgers

We love burgers. Not those nasty things from Burger King and the like, but sumptuous, delicious and juicy, tasty gourmet Burgers. You might have read us rambling on about Byron before, but this time, we wanted to give burgers a try in our own kitchen.

Ingredients (for 5 burgers)

  • 500g good quality mince
  • 1 diced onion
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • Salt and Pepper to season
  • 1 egg
  • You could also add your choice of things to make these burgers your own, we recommend either chipotle paste, sun dried tomatoes, jalapenos or if you are feeling really adventurous, put the cheese in the middle and build the mince around it!


  1. Put your mince in a mixing bowl ad add some salt and pepper, break the mince up a little
  2. Add one finely sliced and diced onion
  3. Add finely chopped garlic
  4. Add the egg
  5. Add any other ingredients you wish to and combine the mix all together, add more salt and pepper
  6. Now get your hands in there and shape the mix into a burger shape as shown in the photo below
  7. Once you have made your burgers cook them, we used a frying pan and did about 3-5 minutes each side, you could use a barbecue or grilling machine! We prefer medium-rare
  8. Add cheese and allow it to melt, we chose roquefort
  9. Serve in a bun with aioli, ketchup, lettuce, tomatoes and red onion
We had ours with a medley of other goodies that you can see in the main pic up top. What I can personally recommend with these burgers, is a play on the traditional Cheese Burger, with the addition of some roquefort cheese. It adds a whole new dimension to the flavour and I can also suggest that you crumble some on whilst they are finishing off in the pan so that it starts to melt.
