Last night my boyfriend really craved a cheeseburger. We are not fast food people and so decided to make our own burgers. I first made burgers with my godmother when I was a little kid, I really enjoyed getting my hands messy and if you have kids I would suggest making these with them. Because I am still suffering with RSI Greg did most of the making!
Makes 6 burgers

What you need:
500g lean mince
1 slice of bread
1 onion
Salt, pepper, cumin and mixed herbs to taste
1 egg

  1. Take the slice of bread and rub it between your hands, over a big bowl, to make breadcrumbs.
  2. Season with salt and pepper and add cumin, mixed herbs and anything else you like. It's great fun to experiment.
  3. Finely slice an onion and add to the bowl.
  4. Add the mince and beaten egg and mix together with your hands. 
  5. Make the mixture into burger shapes and either shallow fry or grill. We did ours in our George Foreman grill. I also added a small piece of brie into the middle my burger.
  6. Add toasted burger bun, tomato, lettuce and cheese.

As this recipe is brilliant to make with kids and easy to knock up with a pack or mince I have entered this into Ren Behan's Family Friendly Friday recipe round up.

A tasty ingredient to add to your burgers is chopped up raw bacon, it's delicious.
