Perfect Burgers

My first summer party cookalong recipe is for my perfect burgers. I've spent a long time perfecting these and endlessly feeding experimental versions to the Beau, he has such a tough life sometimes.

Thanks to the sausage meat these burgers have a really smooth consistency and a nice solid structure, which makes them easy to eat with your hands. When the rest of my family ate them for the first time, they all commented on how much they enjoyed the texture of the burgers.

Just a quick note that I cooked these in a frying pan, as it was raining outside, but they cook just as well on a grill.

Ingredients
Minced Beef
1kg
Sausage Meat
500g
Eggs
2
Bread Crumbs
50g
Onion (shallot for preference)
1
Oil or Butter
for frying
Mixed Herbs
1 tbsp
Salt & Pepper
to season
Other Requirements

Large mixing bowl, chopping board, sharp knife, frying pan

Into your large bowl place the minced beef, the sausage meet and the eggs.

Mix the meats and eggs together with your (freshly washed) hands until they are well combined. Add the breadcrumbs and mix again.

Chop up the onion as fine as you can and put into a frying pan with a little oil or butter. Cook on a low heat until the onion is nice and soft, with a light brown colour.

Add salt and pepper, mixed herbs and the cooked onions to the meat mixture.

Mix together until everything is thoroughly encorporated. This is the point where you can leave the mixture, covered in the fridge, until you need it.

Once you are ready to cook the burgers, take a small handful of the mixture, form into a ball and flatten. Place in a hot frying pan or on a hot grill until cooked through. I found this took about 5 - 7 mins per side. This mixture makes 15 - 20 burgers depending on size.

Serve with your favourite burger accompaniments.
