This mornings task was burger making! I don’t know how fussy these guests are, so I decided to make plain burgers. Also, there’s lots of other flavours kicking around, so something plain means there’s something for everyone…
There was some burger mixture left over after I’d made one for each guest, so I decided I’d make myself a spicy burger for lunch! Dad came home half way through cooking so I (begrudgingly) shared it with him. He liked it so much that he asked me to make some for the BBQ! Argh! So, I have just finished destroying, spicing up and remodelling some of the burgers. It was very tasty, so I thought I’d share! Enjoy!
What You Need
Onion – very finely chopped
Garlic – crushed
Egg – beaten
Salt & Pepper
Ground Coriander (If you have fresh coriander, chop it finely and use it instead)
How You Do It
Put all the ingredients together in a bowl and bind together with your hands. The flour is just to stick it all together. I prefer using it to breadcrumbs. Use sparingly, adding a bit at a time. The spices are to taste, so add them “a su gusto” as we say in Spanish. A drizzle of maple syrup/honey adds a little bit of magic and the Bovril/Marmite helps bring out the “beefy” flavour.
Once all the ingredients are well mixed together take about a handful, roll it into a ball and pat down into a burger shapes and repeat! Put them onto a greased tray and cover with cling film and let them chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
Cook on the BBQ, in the grill or fry them.
Serve in a lightly toasted mini naan bread with some homemade Raita (natural/Greek yoghurt, cucumber – peeled and finely diced, finely chopped mint leaves and salt) and salad. Scrumdiddlyumptious!
