Cheeseburger

This is one of the best recipes for cheeseburgers that I’ve ever run across. I hope you enjoy it, too.

(Note: The photo below is not mine. I forgot to snap a photo when I made the burgers, so I had to settle for one from a photo site that offers free images to the public.)


Cheeseburger

Ingredients:

1 lb (450 g) lean minced (ground) beef
2 oz (50 g) fresh breadcrumbs (I use dry)
4 tbsp (60 ml) milk
1 small onion, skinned and finely grated
1/2 level tsp (2.5 ml) prepared mustard
1 tsp (5 ml) Worcestershire sauce
salt and freshly ground pepper
3 Tbsp (40 g) butter
buns and lettuce to serve
slices of Cheddar cheese (or whatever cheese you like)


Preparation:

1. Combine all the ingredients, except the butter, lettuce and cheese. Divide into eight equal-sized pieces.

2. Shape each into a 1 cm (1/2 inch) thick cake.

3. Heat the butter in a frying pan. Add the burgers, three or four at a time and fry briskly for 1 minute on each side. (These burgers on great on the grill!)

4. Reduce heat and cook more slowly for a further 6 - 8 minutes, turning twice.

5. When the burger is cooked, place a slice of Cheddar cheese over the top and grill until the cheese is bubbling.

Serve in a lettuce-lined bun.
