Making burgers is so much fun, and you can invite all your friends to have a mini burger factory! It is not difficult to make burgers, and the great thing is that you can add whatever you want! We added onion, bacon, salad, tomato and cheese – delicious for today’s beef and bacon burger!
Of course, you can go to the butcher and buy pre-made burger meat so that the shape and consistency are ready to be cooked, but there is no better burger than a homemade burger!
Also, a great kitchen utensil is a burger-press, which I bought for one Euro in Germany. You press your meat inside and then squish it, and it becomes a nice patty. If you don’t have a BBQ, no worries, it works just as well in a pan.
Just serve the beef and bacon burger with chips or put some frozen oven fries in the oven – they taste just fine with burgers! I mean, after all, burgers are not considered a low-fat meal – you might as well go all out! Comfort food all the way!
- 250 grams of minced beef
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 tablespoon of tomato purée
- 1/2 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
- 4 onions
- Salad leaves
- 4 Bacon slices or chorizo (if desired)
- 2 slices of cheddar cheese
- Burger buns
- Salt and pepper
- Place the beef mince, garlic (chopped), tomato puree, Worcestershire sauce, egg and a pinch each of salt and pepper in a bowl and mix combined – best done with your hands!
- Slice the onions very thin and add everything to a non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Let the onions cook. It will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes until the onions are nice and soft (and they get super sweet!)
- Shape the meat mixture into 2 large flat patties or use a burger press.
- Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat or turn on the BBQ. Cook the patties for 4 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking.
- In the meantime, fry the bacon in a pan (or the same pan as burgers) until nice and crisp.
- Place the patties on the base of the buns and top with cheese, salad leaves, onions, etc. Top with remaining bun halves and put into the oven for 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted – then serve.
