Pieday Friday ~ Make your own BBQ burgers at home


At this time of year there’s nothing better than food cooked outdoors on a barbecue. This week I tried something that I never have before – making my own burgers from scratch. The result was some very tasty burgers at a fraction of the price of the gourmet burgers you can buy in the supermarkets.

Ingredients: Minced beef (or lamb if you prefer), tomato puree, garlic puree, sliced olives, an egg yolk, dried herbs, salt and pepper.

I thoroughly combined all the ingredients and shaped the flavoured mince-meat into nice chunky burger patties. I cooked them in the oven to start with (to make sure that the centres were cooked, seeing as they are so thick!) and then finished them off on the BBQ. Serve with a lovely salad and sliced cheese in a lovely soft bun. Is there really anything better??
