Ingredients
For the burgers:
  • 500g (1.1 lbs) Beef mince
  • 3 Garlic cloves, minces
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh parsley
  • 2 (heaped) teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Dried oregano
  • 10 Spring onions, chopped finely
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
To decorate (optional)
  • 2 Shallots, chopped
  • 2 Bacon slices (rashers), chopped small
  • 5 slices Cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Extra virgin olive oil
Instructions
  1. Mix all the ingredients for the burgers into a bowl. Mix well.
  2. Make the mixture into five burgers. Place on a plate and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the grill to 220°C, 428°F. Grill the burgers for 20-30 minutes until cooked through. You should turn them half way through the cooking. I also recommend checking them with a meat thermometer.
  4. While the burgers are grilling, heat the olive oil in a small frying pan on a low-medium heat. Add the bacon and shallots and cook until the bacon is fully cooked and brown but not burnt. Turn off the heat.
  5. Five minutes before the burgers are cooked, add the cheese slices so that they melt under the grill. Once cooked, remove the burgers and serve with some bacon and shallots. Add some extra fresh parsley if desired.
