Easy breezy homemade burgers

Burger patties:

500g ground beef

1 egg, beaten

3/4 cup dry bread crumbs

3 Tbsp evaporated milk

2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 small onion, finely grated

Topping ideas:

cheese, tomato & gherkin

bacon & avocado

blue cheese and fig

Sauce ideas:

prego, mushroom, pepper

cheese or creamy garlic

Cooking options: Frying pan on medium heat or gas grill on high heat.

In a large bowl, using your hands, mix the ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, evaporated milk, worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper, onion and garlic.

Gently shape the mixture into 8 hamburger patties about 2cm thick.

Using your thumb, make a shallow depression in the centre of each burger to prevent puffing up during cooking.

Cook burger patties for 5- 7 minutes per side, or until no longer pink inside. Do not prod your burgers, pierce with a fork or turn frequently as precious juices will be lost!

Tuck into a warm crusty bun, add your favourite toppings and sauce, and serve with chunky fries or oven chips. Super chilled!

Tips: Baste frequently with your favourite barbeque sauce while cooking. Add more

bread crumbs to the mixture for patties that hold their shape better.
