Homemade Beef Burgers

By | October 13, 2016

I love Homemade Burgers. They’re so versatile, you can add any flavours you want, and any toppings you want. I like cheese and pineapple, bacon, more cheese, haloumi, other meats, and a bit more cheese. Probably not all on the same burger, but then again, why not? When I was pregnant I went to a pub that did a build you own burger type menu, I asked for hash browns and haloumi, then felt the need to add “I am pregnant!!”.

I like to make my own bread too, which you can find the recipe for here. But by all means buy them in if you’d rather (but really have a go, it’s super easy).

You will need:ingredients for homemade burgers

  • 500g Beef mince
  • 1 Red onion, finely diced
  • 1 Tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 Tsp salt
  • 2 Tsp Creamy horseradish
  • Cooking oil

Now this is so simple, you’re never going to buy burgers again.

Add all of your ingredients to a large mixing bowl, mixed them together with your hands.

Divide the mixture into 4 and roll into balls. Flatten and shape them into burger patties.

To cook, we fry for about 3 minutes on either side in a little oil, just to brown them off, then we put them on a baking tray and cook in the oven for a further 20 minutes, doing it like this gives you a nice even bake.

I like to add a slice cheese to the top with 2 minutes left to go.

That’s it. I serve them on white rolls, with mayo, lettuce and tomato. With a side of homemade sweet potato wedges and some coleslaw.
