Best Homemade Beef Burger

Everyone has their own special way of making their vision of the perfect burger. This is mine! It is a soft and juicy patty laying under a slice of cheddar, cooked spinach and caramelised onions. It’s best with a brioche bun. I have to say, this is the best homemade beef burger I have ever made!

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 bag spinach
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoon Honey
  • 1 pinch salt to taste
  • 1 pinch pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese


  • Air out the ground beef and add the egg, paprika, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, a dash of salt and pepper. Wash your hands and mix it all together.
  • Separate the large ball of beef and mould it into 4 separate balls.
  • Prep your board with flour so that the beef does not stick to your board or table while making the balls into burger patties.
  • Set aside your patties and start preparing the spinach and onions. In a pan, pour the bag of spinach with a bit of olive oil and a pinch of salt and steam it (closing the airflow with a lid) until it is fully cooked.
  • While the spinach is cooking, slice your onion in a way that keeps its rings.
  • Once the spinach is cooked, set it aside in a separate bowl and use the same pan (or you can use another one) to start heating the onions with a bit of butter or olive oil. As the onions take a bit of time to soften, you can also start cooking the patties simultaneously. Butter up the pan and start grilling!
  • Once the onions have softened and are yellow translucent, start marinating them with honey! I generally put around 3 tablespoons of honey per onion. Leave it on the stove until burgers are done.
  • While cooking your burger, place a slice of cheddar cheese on each patty until it is melted.
  • Start stacking up your burger! Cut up some tomatoes, too, for a fresh aspect to it!
