Homemade Burgers

The key to a really good homemade beef burger is to get the onions and seasoning into the meat before it goes on the barbecue, so that the flavour is distributed throughout the meat, rather than sitting on top. Try this healthier recipe at your next barbcue. If you love tomato ketchup but want to avoid the added salt and refined sugar 'nasties,' why not take a few minutes to make my healthier ketchup or bourbon barbecue sauce to go on top?


  • 800g of lean organic beef mince

  • 1 egg

  • 1 medium onion (finely chopped)

  • 1 tsp cumin powder

  • 2 tsp fresh parsley (finely chopped)

  • Olive oil


  1. Place chopped onion in a frying pan with a little olive oil and cook for a few minutes until the onion starts to brown.

  2. Crack the egg into a bowl or cup and whisk until you get an even, airy consistency.

  3. In a glass bowl, combine the cooked onions, egg, beef, cumin and parsley. Knead the ingredients together until they are all mixed evenly.

  4. On a sheet of greaseproof paper, divide the mixture into four balls and mould into the shape of beef burger patties.

  5. Make sure your barbecue is not too hot to hold your hand over, then cook the patties for 4-5 minutes on each side, depending on how well done you prefer them.
