Recipe for Home-made Burger Patties.

A cheeseburger may not be everyone's idea of a healthy meal, but if you do make your own burger patties, you can not only control what actually goes into them, but also cook them on a grill to reduce the amount of fat that you eventually consume.


  • 1 red onion
  • 400g minced beef
  • 1 egg


  1. Chop the onion up into small pieces. Add to the minced beef in bowl, then crack the egg open and mix together.
  2. Divide the mixture into six. Carefully roll each portion into a small ball with your hands. Set in the palm of one hand and squeeze down to flatten into patties.
  3. Put on a plate or tray and cover with cling film. Allow to cool in a fridge for at least an hour.
  4. Once the patty has firmed up, you can cook them by either frying in a pan or on the grill.
  5. Serve in a bun, with garnish of your choice (e.g. lettuce, tomato slices, gherkins).
