I stupidly forgot to take a pic of the finished product and of the crispy fries! but below are the burgers cooking away and the recipes, enjoy!

 

 
Ingredients (hamburgers for two people):

  • Half a pound of lean minced beef
  • A handful of finely chopped onion, and also some sliced onion (separated, for on top)
  • A small sprinkling of fresh chives
  • 1 tsp of chilli powder
  • Half a tsp of salt for flavour
  • Half a tsp of pepper for flavour
  • 2 tsp of olive oil (separate)
  • Couple slices of reduced fat Swiss cheese
  • Hamburger buns (gluten free for me and normal for Calum!)
  • Any other vegetables you want to add on top (Calum added a tomato)

Instructions:
  1. Add the mince, finely chopped onion, chives, chilli powder, salt and pepper to a large bowl and mix with your hands until its all combined.
  2. Separate the mixture into two and make hamburger shaped patties
  3. Put on a baking tray and cover with cling film, then put in the fridge for about half an hour
  4. Once you're ready to eat, put a tsp of olive oil into the pan (we like our meat to cook in its own juices) and brown the meat. Leave on each side for a few minutes, turning them over periodically until they cook right through.
  5. Put another tsp of olive oil in another pan and add the sliced onion, making them crunchy for on top of the burger
  6. Once all ready, add to burger bun with any sauces you want to add, and enjoy!
