  1. If adding a diced red onion, pre cook it by frying in a little butter until soft then add to a bowl with the mince/ground beef.

  2. In a bowl add the beef, onion (optional), egg and seasoning. Mix with hands until well combined.
  3. Divide the mixture into 5 portions. Take each portion of ground/mince beef,  and squeeze it into a firm, flat burger shape. The firmer you squeeze it into shape, the more likely it is to stay together while cooking.

  4. Fry gently until thoroughly cooked on both sides.

Recipe Notes

*Optional - add a small red onion finely diced to the beef burger patties mix before cooking
*You will need to calculate your vegetables separately as what and how much you choose will vary enormously.
