Ingredients:

  • 4 x burger buns, sliced in half
  • 1 x egg, beaten
  • 2 x large garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 x pickled gherkins sliced thinly, lengthwise
  • The leaves of 2 x little gem lettuce (or Cos / Romaine leaves)
  • 550gr / 1.2 lb good quality beef mince
  • 1 x small red onion sliced thinly
  • To Serve
  • A good pinch of salt and a nice grind of fresh black pepper
  • I x large shallot, chopped finely
  • 1 x tbsp sunflower oil
  • Tomato ketchup and yellow American mustard
  • 2 x tomatoes, sliced

Instructions:

  • Place the meat, egg, garlic shallot, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix through with your hands . Do this until everything is as even as possible - you wouldn't want to get a mouthful of onion or garlic! Divide the burger mix into 4 equal parts . Form each burger by rolling it into a ball in your hands and flatten a little, but keep them nice and thick .
  • Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed pan, when hot, place the burgers in the pan . The heat should be medium/hot . The cooking time will depend on how thick you make your burger and how you like them cooked . I find that my burgers take about 4 to 6 minutes on each side for a burger that is about 3cm thick (just over an inch) for a medium result . When the burgers are cooked, lift them out of the pan and set aside . Take your burger buns and place them face down in the pan, toast them in the burger flavour for a minute or two on each side . To serve, place the little gem leaves on your bread, then the tomato, the burgers on top, lay over a couple of slices of pickle and some sliced raw onion on top .
