Easy Peasy Cheesey Burgers

Makes 4 burgers.

I love a good burger. Crispy, juicy and delectable, they are super tasty.
Once again, these are super versatile and you can add what you like. Below are the two favoured burger builds in our house.

I have included the simple burger patty recipe we use, but it also works to buy those fresh pre-made ones from the butcher/supermarket. 

Beautiful Beef:

Ingredients: 

  • 400g beef mince
  • 4 bread buns
  • fresh lettuce (mesclun is very good)

  • guacamole (optional)
  • tomato sauce (optional)
  • mustard (optional)
  • mayonnaise (optional)
  • tbsp cooking oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • butter to spread

Method: 

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees, on grill.
  • In a large frying pan on medium-high, heat oil with salt and pepper.
  • Split mince into quarters and fashion into four patties, about palm size.
  • Place into pan and let cook for 6 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, open the burger buns, butter and place one slice of cheese on each bun.
  • Open and drain pineapple and set aside.
  • When the 6 minutes are up, flip your burgers over and leave for another 6 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, put a plate near the stove and make sure all your condiments are ready.
  • When the timer runs out, place the burgers on the plate to rest.
  • Add the pineapple rings and mushrooms to the pan and put the buns in the oven.
  • When the pineapple is browned off (3-4 mins) remove from heat.
  • Remove buns from the oven and time to build your burger!
  • Add guacamole to each bun and place a patty on top.
