Epic Bacon Cheeseburger

I do a couple of different burgers with different fillings but the main burger meat is always the same and it tastes amazing! My toddler eats pretty much everything we eat so none of my recipes have salt added to them, I don’t feel they need it but add away if you do.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 500g of 5% fat lean beef mince
  • 1 tsp of onion powder
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1 tsp of mixed dried herb
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 4 Wholemeal rolls
  • Bacon medallions
  • Plastic cheese slices
  • Salad for garnish

Method

Pop the mince in a large mixing bowl and add the onion powder, garlic powder, pepper and mixed herbs then get your hands in it and squish the meat while mixing the seasoning through. Separate into 4 equal portions and roll them in to balls. Flatten out the balls with you hands while still shaping them to make them a burger shape, leave them quite chunky but not too much that they won’t cook through. Heat up a frying pan and spray a bit of frylight onto it, once the frylight has gone see through place the burgers into the pan. Meanwhile, grill your bacon medallions until you’re happy with the way they’re cooked (I like mine on the crispy side) and start building up your bun.

Give the burgers about 5 minutes on 1 side before you turn them over then give them another 5 minutes. The only way to check they’re done is to cut into one and cooking time depends on the thickness of the burgers but they’re beef, if they’re a bit pink in the middle it won’t matter, they’ll just be juicer. Once the burger has cooked to your liking, place it on top of the salad in your bun, bacon on top of that then top with a plastic cheese slice.

Serve with homemade chips and enjoy!
