Homemade Burgers – My Way!

I do like a burger from time to time.  Not one of those processed, contains 1% real meat types, but a nice, freshly made with actual beef one.  Last night I fancied a burger – I actually wanted a BBQ’d burger, but that’s not practical in a first floor flat! So I rustled up these quick ones with a few items we had in the fridge, and put them until the grill. Some burger recipes call for an egg in them, I don’t bother with that in this recipe.

Red OnionSun-Blushed Tomatoes

Burgers (makes 4)


500g Steak Mince
1 Red Onion, finely chopped
5 – 6 Sun-blushed Tomatoes, finely chopped
Large Dollop of Tomato ketchup
Salt and Pepper


  • Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix together with your hands until everything is well incorporated
  • Divide the mixture into 4, and shape into burger shaped patties.
  • At this point they can be wrapped in greaseproof paper and cling film and frozen – if you wish
  • Otherwise, cook the burgers in a pan, under the grill or on the BBQ.
  • Garnish as desired!

These are so quick and easy to make, you can just add in what other flavourings you want!  I served mine quite simply with good old Cheddar Cheese and Salad – yum!
