Recipe for super beef burgers with salad, pickles, bacon and mature cheddar
150g Homestyle bacon
600g steak mince
1 onion – chop finely
10g fresh parsley – chop
2 eggs (from your pantry)
50g mature cheddar – grate coarsely
80g salad leaves
2 tomatoes – slice
50g dill pickles – slice
1 red onion – slice finely
4 burger buns
butter (from your pantry)
salt & pepper (from your pantry)
Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.
Place a large frying pan on medium to high heat and fry the bacon until crispy – about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
In a bowl, mix the following ingredients together (you can use your hands): steak mince, chopped onion (white onion), parsley and eggs. Season well with salt and pepper. Shape the mince into a patty – one per person.
Return the frying pan you cooked the bacon in to the stove (medium to high heat). Add a knob of butter and when hot, add the patties (no overlapping). They should sizzle when they hit the pan (if the pan is hot enough). Cook the patties for about 4 to 6 minutes per side. Make sure they are nicely browned and cooked through.
Cut the burger buns in half and toast lightly.
To assemble the burgers, place half a bun on each plate. Add layers of salad leaves, tomato, dill pickles and red onion slices on top. Then add the burger patty, grated cheese and a slice of bacon. Top with the other half of the bun. Serve immediately.
