Recipe for my Homemade Burgers

Finally getting back into the swing of things again... thank goodness!!
Burgers are one of my favourite meals to eat even though they can be messy. I love experimenting and concocting new combinations, this burger is quite simple but amazing all the same.


For 6 Burgers
  • 455 grams of minced beef
  • 1 egg 
  • 4 tablespoons of semolina 
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 4 Red Onions (sliced) 
  • Balsamic Vinegar 
  • Emmental Cheese
  • Sour Cream 
  • Hot Sauce 
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Rustic or Tiger bread buns 

Potato Wedges
  • Potato's 
  • Olive oil 
  • Salt and Pepper 


  1.  In a large bowl combine the minced beef, egg, semolina, salt and pepper, once the mixture is combined form into patties and place onto a flat baking sheet.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Slice the potato’s into wedges and pat dry using a clean dish towel and then onto a roasting pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, bake the wedges in the oven for 30 minutes turning half way through.
  3. Slice up the red onions and gently cook them in a pan with olive oil and balsamic vinegar until caramelized.
  4. Heat up a grill pan on a medium heat, place a little bit of oil onto the burger patties before placing onto the heat. (To stop the fire alarm from going off.) Just before the burgers have finished cooking place the cheese onto of each burger and cloche with a dinner plate or lid, drizzle in some water to create steam and to melt the cheese perfectly.
  5. Meanwhile mix up some mayonnaise, hot sauce and bbq sauce and spread onto of the bread buns. Place on the burgers and top with the caramelized onions.

    I think this could also be good with some quality hot tomato chutney.
