Homemade beef burgers recipe
These beef burgers use lean mince, gouda cheese and salad alongside a delicious tasty burger sauce that will have the whole family asking for seconds.
- 450g topside mince
- 4 slices gouda cheese
- 1 cos lettuce, washed and shredded
- 4 crusty bread rolls
- 100g cornichons, sliced in half
- 60ml (1/4 cup) tomato sauce
- 60ml (1/4 cup) mayonnaise
- 40ml (2 tbsp) lemon juice
- 20ml (1 tbsp) Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
Make the pink sauce first by placing all ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Stir to combine and season to taste.
Season the mince in a large bowl and, using your hands gently form into patties, about 2cm thick and 6cm in diameter.
Heat the barbecue to high. Cook patties for a couple of minutes on one side then turn over and place a slice of cheese on each patty and cook for another 2 minutes. Meanwhile, place the bread roll halves on the other side of the barbecue plate to toast lightly.
Place some lettuce on each half bread roll, top with a patty, a few cornichon halves and a dollop of pink sauce.
Close with the bread roll lids and hand around lots of napkins.
- Be gentle and don’t ‘work’ the mince too much, as this can make the patties tough.
- When ready to serve, you could put all of the fillings out for diners to build their own burgers..
- You can serve these with shoestring fries for a delicious side dish.
