  • Silicon flexible turner
  • Chopping board
  • Mixing bowl


  • 500 grams beef mince (ground beef) Note 1
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • lettuce
  • sliced tomato
  • sauce Note 2
  • pickles optional


  • Add ground beef (beef mince), Italian herbs and minced garlic to a medium sized mixing bowl, stir to combine
  • Use a chopping board and portion the seasoned burger meat into 4
  • Use your palms vertically to form the patties, without too much pressure and no squishing Note 3
  • Spray a fry pan with a little olive oil, slide a silicon flexible turner under the beef patties, and simply slide them off onto the fry pan. Cook at a medium heat for 5 mins. Then slide the turner under, flip the patties and cook for an additional 5 mins Note 4
  • Remove cooked hamburger patties from frypan and place on paper towel for 1 min to rest whilst you get the burger toppings ready to assemble
  • Start with the burger bun, followed by lettuce, cooked beef patty, sauce, tomato, pickles and close the burgers with the top of the bun
  • Serve as is, or with chips or onion rings


  • Note 1 Purchase a low quality, high fat beef mince. The fat makes the burger patties juicy, ensuring they don't dry out and are not going to crumble and break apart.
  • Note 2 I love making homemade sauces and there are plenty on the blog to choose from. Pair with you favorite flavor combo and skip the sugary too sweet sauces if you can!
  • Note 3 I go into more detail about this in the post, that is how to keep the burgers from falling apart. You need to handle the meat as little as possible. Simply form the patties (round shape) and don't squish or flatten them. 
  • Note 4 If you want it use the Air Fryer. Cut patty sized squares of baking paper. Place the patties onto the baking paper, cook for 5 mins, flip (once only) removing paper (discard) and cook for a further 5 mins.
