Ultimate Beefburgers

Ultimate Beefburgers

Makes 4 king size burgers or 5 medium.


500g/1 lb lean minced beef
1 onion finely chopped
1 egg
good handful thyme chopped
1 tsp mustard
½ tsp of dried chilli flakes
2 heaped tbsp breadcrumbs
salt and pepper
Olive or vegetable oil
blue cheese (Stilton, Roquefort, or St Agur(favourite!))


1. Fry the chopped onion with the chilli flakes for about 6 minutes in a dash of oil, then mix all the ingredients together and squeeze into balls. Flatten into burger shapes. Grill for 7 minutes on each side under medium grill heat. Top with a knob of blue cheese for the last 2 minutes under the grill.

2. Serve with mashed potatoes, peas and fried onions.

It is easy to make breadcrumbs in a food processor or chopper. 1 slice of bread including the crust will make enough for this recipe. To add extra flavour and texture, I prefer to make the breadcrumbs from a brown granary or brown seeded loaf - it adds the wow factor!
