Ingredients

  • 500g lean beef or pork mince
  • 1 onion , coarsely grated
  • 1 egg , beaten
  • 25g dried breadcrumbs
  • grated nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • burger buns , sliced cheese, lettuce, sliced tomato and lingonberry sauce (optional), to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Tip the mince, onion, egg, breadcrumbs, nutmeg and garlic powder into a large bowl and generously season with black pepper. Mix everything together using your hands, then shape the mixture into six patties. Transfer to a plate, cover and chill for 1 hr or up to a day.

  • STEP 2

    Heat a barbecue to medium or until a thin layer of coals has turned grey. Cook the burgers for 10 mins, turning occasionally, until lightly charred and cooked through. Top with sliced cheese during the final 2 mins of cooking time, if you like. 

  • STEP 3

    Serve the burgers in the buns topped with the lettuce, tomato and lingonberry sauce, if you like.

The burgers can also be grilled or pan-fried for 10 mins, turning halfway through.
