Cost Saver Tips

Prepare more burgers than needed and freeze before cooking.


Allergy Disclaimer

Always check the label of each ingredient for allergy warnings.


  1. Heat the oven to 230°c / 210°c fan oven / 450°F / gas mark 8.
  2. Peel the garlic and first onion and wash the parsley. Then crush the garlic and finely chop the onion and parsley.
  3. Use a wooden spoon to combine the burger ingredients (mince, garlic, one onion, parsley, and dried herbs) together, except for the oil. You can use a food processor if you have one.
  4. Divide the mixture into equal sized balls using your hands, or press each portion of the mixture into a plain cutter or food ring on the baking tray to make a burger. Lightly brush the top of each burger with oil.
  5. Bake the burgers for 10-15 minutes until they are cooked through, with no redness remaining and juices running clear.
  6. Meanwhile, peel and finely chop the second onion. Wash and slice the tomatoes and wash and shred the lettuce.
  7. Combine the mayonnaise, onion and mustard in a bowl to make a mayonnaise topping.
  8. When the burgers are cooked, lift them on to the buns. Top them with the tomato slices, lettuce and mayonnaise topping. Serve immediately.
