When thinking of burgers, most will picture a greasy pile of beef and cheese. However, gourmet burgers are on the rise and staying away from fast-food burgers has never been easier.
Making your own burgers at home is an amazing way to treat yourself whilst knowing exactly what goes into your food. No more patties dripping with oil and additives, make way for better burgers without the guilt!
-Lean beef mince
-Salt & pepper
-Mature sliced cheddar cheese (optional)
-Preferred toppings (lettuce, tomatoes, onions, sauce, etc..)
-In a large bowl, use your hands to mix the mince with onion powder, chilli powder and Dijon mustard. Add salt and pepper to taste.
-Roll the mince into the palms of your hands to obtain a small ball (approx. 7cm wide)
-Repeat for each burger
-Wrap the balls into cling film sheets and platen them into patties with a pan
-Spread a very light coat of Dijon mustard on each side of your patties
-Heat up some olive oil into a pan and cook your patties on high heat for 45sec-1min each side
-If you wish to add a slice of cheese, melt it on the burger for the last 15-20 seconds.
-Place your patties onto brioche buns, add your preferred toppings and enjoy!
