METHOD /

BEEF PATTIES

Add all ingredients into a mixing bowl to form the burger mixture.

Split mixture into 4 equal balls, press into a round 9cm/3.75” cookie cutter to form 4 burger patties then place on a tray lined with non-stick baking paper, cover with cling wrap and chill in the fridge for 1 hour.

After 1 hour, remove from fridge and brown in a lightly-oiled frying pan for a minute or two all over, then transfer to a baking dish and finish cooking in a preheated oven set to 180˚C/350˚F, for 10 - 12 minutes until meat is cooked through, or to your liking.

BLUE CHEESE SAUCE

Place all ingredients together in a jar and shake well to combine.

TO SERVE

Serve burger in crusty warm bread rolls with blue cheese sauce, lettuce, tomato, pickles and fries.
