Home Made Beef Burgers

Following on from the last post, here is how to make burgers that all the family can enjoy and I am going to assume you have actually minced your own beef so that you know that you are eating 100% meat! You can bulk make these and freeze them. The recipe for beefburgers is the same I would use for meatballs, just roll them into balls and don’t squash flat!

Preparation method

  1. Place all the burger ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir to combine. Using your hands, shape into four equal-sized patties.
  2. Preheat the grill to hot. Cook the burgers under the grill for 15 minutes, or until cooked through, turning once.
  3. Top each burger with a slice of cheese towards the end of the cooking time.
  4. Before serving, mix together the mayonnaise and lettuce. Cut the ciabatta rolls in half and toast under the grill on both sides.
  5. Top the bottom halves of the ciabatta rolls with the lettuce and mayonnaise, followed by a slice of tomato.
  6. Arrange the burger and cheese on top of the ciabatta, followed by a slice of red onion. Top each burger with the other halves of the ciabatta rolls and serve.


You will find these are tasty and so much cheaper than beefburgers that you can buy in supermarkets.  And if you start mincing your own mince you will know exactly what is going into them too.
