Ingredients

  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • 3 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp thyme leaves
  • 2 slices of white bread, crusts removed
  • 250 g minced beef
  • 3 tbsp tomato chutney (or tomato relish)
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 1-2 tbsp flour, for dusting

Method

  1. Sauté the onion in 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil for 5–6 minutes, until soft.
  2. Add the garlic and thyme and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Tear the bread into pieces and put in a food processor with the onion mixture and blitz together.
  4. If you want a really smooth texture, pulse all the ingredients together in the food processor for a few seconds. If not, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and season to taste.
  5. Form the mixture into 6 burgers using flour-dusted hands.
  6. Fry the burgers in the remaining oil for 4 to 5 minutes on each side over a medium-to-low heat. If you fry over a high heat, because of the sugar in the tomato chutney the burgers have a tendency to burn.
  7. Alternatively cook the burgers under a pre-heated grill.
  8. Serve in a bun with lettuce and tomato.
  9. To freeze, line a baking tray with cling film and place the uncooked burgers on it. Cover with another sheet of cling film and freeze until solid. Remove burgers from tray and store in a re-sealable bag or box.
