Makes five burgers
- 500g minced beef
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 tbsp tomato ketchup
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- salt and ground black pepper
- choice of herbs eg. paprika or parsley (optional)
5 large portobello mushrooms, stalks removed
5 slices of cheddar cheese
1. Place all the burger ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir to combine. Shape into five equal-sized patties.
2. Preheat the grill. Cook burgers and mushrooms under the grill for 15 minutes or until patties are cooked through, turning once.
You can add whatever garnish you like to the burgers eg. onions, lettuce or tomatoes. We serve our burgers with home-made sweet potato wedges.
They're very moist and flavourful.
Andre eats two of these at a go!
Afternote: A friend pointed out an error in my original recipe which strangely included 4 large eggs as part of the recipe. Yikes! Sorry, my mistake! Apologies to all who tried it and must have ended up with a soggy mess. I've corrected the recipe.
