My family's cheeseburger

Ingredients (make 11-12 burgers)

1kg regular beef mince
3 slices white or wholemeal sandwich bread, crust removed
2/3 cup milk
2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
4 tablespoons smoked BBQ sauce
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
Half a bunch of parsley, leaves picked and chopped finely
Salt and pepper to taste

100g-150g mozzarella cheese, grated coarsely

2 onions, peeled and sliced
Oil to fry

Condiments: lettuce, sliced tomatoes, canned beetroot (drained), sriracha sauce
12 wholemeal buns


Prepare the burger first. Put the meat in a bowl, together with the torn bread, worcestershire sauce, BBQ sauce, smoked paprika, milk, salt and pepper. Mix well. Form 11-12 patties from the mixture. Put on a plate, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, fry the onion with 2 tablespoons of oil until soft and start to golden. Set aside.

Now, bring the burgers out of the fridge. Pan-fry one side until golden. Flip to the other side, sprinkle with cheese on top and fry over medium-low heat until the burgers are cooked through and the cheese is melted. Set aside and keep warm.

Split the buns in haves and warm them up in the oven. Arrange lettuce, tomatoes, beetroot and one burger in each bun. Top with fried onions. Serve immediately with your favourite sauces.
