  • Spread the minced meat out flat.

  • Grated onion, finely chopped spring onion, crushed garlic, ground spices chopped fresh or dried herbs, ground black pepper - pick the flavours you like.

  • Toss together gently and shape into burgers with your hands.

  • Squash the burgers really flat before you cook them. As they cook the meat will constrict, which will make the burgers smaller and fatter.

  • Season the burger with salt and pepper after shaping to retain the juice.

  • Chill your burgers for at least an hour before you cook them.

  • Pop your burgers on the barbecue or in a hot, non-stick frying pan with a little oil. Cook for 5 - 6 minutes each side for medium and 8 - 9 minutes on each side for well done.

  • Once the burger has browned on both sides, pop your cheese on top (if using) and cover with a small bowl or lid to finish off cooking, this will melt the cheese and keep all the lovely meaty juices inside the burger.

  • Always toast soft buns as it keeps the sauce from sinking into them and gives you a nice contrast of textures.
