How to make a yummy cheeseburger

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 jalapeΓ±Γ±o peppers mixed into the mince
  • A good splash of Worcestershire sauce
  • Grated Coon cheese
  • Butter
  • Hamburger bread roll
  • Spinach leaves

What you need to do to make the Yummy Lummy cheeseburger

  1. Mix together the mince, eggs, dried herbs, chilli flakes, red chillies, jalapeΓ±Γ±o peppers, pepper, salt and sugar
  2. Make patties about 90 millimetres in diameter and 2 centimetres high
  3. Cook the meat in a frying pan
  4. Put together the buttered bread roll with the cheese, spinach and meat
  5. Add a good squirt of tomato sauce and inhale that sucker

  1. Sometimes the simpler the dish, the better it is. The really looks like one big wallop of tomato sauce. In general I don’t like too much tomato or sweet sauce on my burgers – let’s just say I really like them savoury πŸ˜€ I have never made my own beef patty from ground beef. Lately I have been spending more time in the kitchen and you know, it is tempting. Thanks for the tip that regular mince beef packs a better punch in the mouth πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks Mabel,
      I prefer barbecue or brown sauces over tomato sauce but I thought the colour would show better in the photographs.
      I hope you make your own burger. Let me know how it goes.

    2. Red certainly stands out much better than brown. You can always try yellow mustard sauce too. It goes well with beef burgers πŸ˜€ I will let you know how it goes if I make my own burger πŸ˜€

      “inhale that sucker” – tomato sauce certainly has a strong, tangy smell to the nose.

  2. I make my own burger patties often enough that I’m comfortable with trying new things to flavour the meat though the chilies aren’t something I’ve ever tried.

    I HAVE made stuffed burger patties with blue cheese inside and a drizzle of black truffle oil for flavour. I even came up with a catchy title for them. πŸ™‚

    1. Mmm…I must try adding little bits of blue cheese into my burger patties. Great idea. Thank you πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‹
