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).
- 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.
