  • burger buns, lettuce, sliced red onion, tomatoes, gherkins, and sauces or relishes, to serve


  1. Tip the mince into a large bowl with the onion, breadcrumbs, cheese, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, egg, chilli powder, ½ tsp salt and some pepper. Mix together well with your hands, then divide the mixture into 10 and shape into burgers.

  2. Bring 2 large saucepans of water to the boil (or prepare the chips in batches if you don’t have enough big pans). Add the chips, bring the water back to the boil and set your timer for 3 mins. After 3 mins, drain the potatoes well and tip onto one or two large kitchen-papercovered trays. Scatter with the flour and some seasoning and gently toss to coat.

  3. Freeze the burgers and chips (see freezing tips, below) or, to cook straight away, heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. In a baking tray, toss the chips in a little oil, then roast for 35-40 mins until crisp and golden. Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan, grill or barbecue until hot, then cook the burgers for about 5-8 mins on each side, or until cooked to your liking. Sandwich the burgers in toasted buns with salad and sauces, then serve with the chips.

Tried this recipe tonight and it’s delicious, really tasty burgers, I didn’t add the Worcester sauce or chilli as my toddler was having them as well. Out of just under half the recipe (used 500g mince) I got 5 large and 7 slider burgers! Will definitely be making again, so much nicer than shop bought

I used two eggs to bind the burgers, 1 egg is just not enough for that amount of meat.

Followed the recipe only left out the chilli & used dried parsley as didn't have fresh. They were delicious, really moist & tasty. Cooked on the BBQ & didn't break up as I had Coated them in flour & put them back in the fridge after making them until they were needed. 5 stars

Made these a bunch of times now, always a winner. Cost effective too. I also sometimes make thinner 'patties' and tightly enclose two around a slice of mozarella, they ooze magnificently when they come out the oven!

Made these last night and they were lovely! I'm a complete beginner in the kitchen so this was an easy thing to make. Put 2 white slices of bread in the food processor for the the breadcrumbs and missed out the Worcester sauce as not keen. Took advice of using flour to coat which may have held them together as mine didn't crumble. Will try more chili powder next time as didn't have a kick to them and I used a hot one instead of mild! Rating not working but it's a 5 star.

I make these burgers a few times a month, I add garlic and bit more salt, they don't fall apart when cooked on a pre heated grill, haven't tried them on a BBQ though. Use the best quality mince that you can for the best taste!

The burgers wouldnt bind :(

Made for the 1st time last week, forgot to rate. Tasted amazing, only problem was I forgot to freeze them, so they just crumbled apart when cooking them. Instead I put them in the oven, turned out just as nice, but didn't crumble.

fantastic. Loved these burgers & they are so easy to make. I didn't have any worcestershire sauce or parsley. I also used bread that was in the house, i just put in2 a food processer to make the bread crumbs. Lovely taste with the cheese & onions in it & when cooked you can get a slight taste of the chili powder. highly recommend & will be making these again.

Try cooking these for longer before the first couple of turnings to stop them from falling apart
