home made beef burgers (no horse included)

beef burgers;
a famous american speciality, but homemade with 100% beef & tender loving care.

You will need:
  • one pack of lean minced beef
  • one pack of chives (chopped)
  • one onion
  • a pinch of salt + pepper
  • 1 egg
  • burger buns
  • sauces i.e ketchup
  • tortilla chips
  • jalapeno peppers
  • cheese
  • sour cream
  • guacamole
  • salsa

Firstly, we started by mixing the minced beef in with the chopped chives and then I just used my hands to mash it all together. Mm, lovely.

To stop the mince being too dry once cooked, I added one egg (yolk included) just to add some moisture to them.

After dicing an onion and mixing it in, we then started to form the burger shapes. It was tricky to get the round shape without bits of the mixture falling everywhere, but we got there in the end! We then laid them out onto a baking tray and popped them into the grill.

We got these adorable little burger buns from Sainsburys. So much better than boring seeded ones!

We also decided to make some nachos (my favourite) to accompany the burgers. We bought a little fresh dips quad from the cold section in Sainsburys which had salsa, sour cream, cheese sauce and guacamole. After grating some cheese, we layered the cheese and nachos onto a plate and popped them into the oven for a few minutes. And ta-dar! At least I know I'm not eating any horse in my meal!

Will you be trying these? :)
