Cheese and Chilli Burgers

Cheese and Chilli Burgerstick-150x15018   BBQ1-150x15011   Makes 4

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 red chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 400g lean, fresh beef mince
  • 50g fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 50g mature cedar, grated
  • 200g red kidney beans, drained
  1. Heat the oil on a frying pan and fry the onion and chillies gently for 5 minutes, until softened.
  2. Place the minced beef in a large bowl and break it up. Add the breadcrumbs, onion and chilli mixture, beaten egg, cheese and kidney beans. Mix it all together thoroughly.
  3. Divide into four and shape into thick rounds. Place them on a baking tray.
  4. Cook the burgers on a BBQ, for 6-8 minutes each side, until cooked through. Keep the heat medium so you do not char them, OR bake in an oven at 200C for 20 minutes.

I don’t recommend frozen mince as it generally holds too much water to stick together.

This is a good recipe freezing un-cooked for another meal,  if there are only two of you.
