  Cooking temperature: Hot grill

Makes/Serves: burgers


  • 1 slice Bread
  • 0.5 Onion
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 500 g Beef Mince (20% fat)
  • 2 tablespoons Tomato Puree
  • 1 Egg Yolk


  1. Put the onion and slice of bread in a food processor and process to mix them together.
  2. Put the onion and bread mixture in to a large bowl.
  3. Crush the garlic and add that.
  4. Add the beef mince, tomato puree and egg yolk.
  5. Season with some salt and pepper.
  6. Use a wooden spoon to mix all the ingredients together. Make sure they are thoroughly mixed.
  7. Divide the mixture into the number of burgers you want to make.
  8. If you have a burger press, use this, otherwise shape the mixture into burgers and space them out in a lined baking tray.
  9. Grill for about 5 mins on each side.
  10. Serve in a bun with your choice of sauce/garnish.


Use a baking tray rather than a baking sheet to grill them in. The high sides will help contain the spitting fat when you grill them.
