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.

    I’ve only ever made homemade burgers once, it was the summer of last year. And you know what they were pretty tasty and I was really impressed with the effort. Definitely inspired me to have another go. Your finished product looks yummy, especially when I’m hungry! #coolmumclub

      They were amazing! I possibly ate 2 and then couldn’t move for about 3 hours!
