It’s not a difficult thing to make a cheeseburger but I just wanted to share how I did it.
This wasn’t the most elaborate burger, it didn’t have the essential ingredients of an Australian burger which included slices of beetroot and a ring of pineapple plus a fried egg and some bacon.
Suffice to say, this burger was mainly about putting some beef mince (ground meat) and cheese together on a hamburger bread roll.
What you need to make the Yummy Lummy cheeseburger
- 500 grams of regular mince (ground beef). I avoid the really lean mince because it lacks flavour
- Two eggs. Whisked and hand mixed into the mince
- Mixed dried herbs mixed into the mince
- Chilli flakes mixed into the mince
- Coarsely ground black pepper mixed into the mince
- 1 teaspoon of freshly ground sea salt
- 1 teaspoon of brown sugar
- Finely cut red chillies and jalapeñño peppers mixed into the mince
- A good splash of Worcestershire sauce
- Grated Coon cheese
- Hamburger bread roll
- Spinach leaves
What you need to do to make the Yummy Lummy cheeseburger
- Mix together the mince, eggs, dried herbs, chilli flakes, red chillies, jalapeñño peppers, pepper, salt and sugar
- Make patties about 90 millimetres in diameter and 2 centimetres high
- Cook the meat in a frying pan
- Put together the buttered bread roll with the cheese, spinach and meat
- Add a good squirt of tomato sauce and inhale that sucker
How did it taste?
Fantastic. It was lovely and spicy and cheesy.
