  • 500 gm. mince beef, or meat of your choice or chicken or mashed fish (tinned fish can be used)

  • 2 medium onions, peeled and finely chopped

  • 2 slices from a large white loaf, made into crumbs in a food processor or on a grater

  • 1 tbsp. fresh herbs like parsley or coriander

  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt or to taste

  • 1/2 tsp. pepper

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten


  1. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

  2. Divide the mix into 8 portions.

  3. With oiled or wetted palms/hands, first roll them into balls and then flatten into burger shapes.

  4. Keep them in the fridge for 1/2 hour. They are suitable for freezing, provided you are not using defrosted mince.

  7. Serve with bread rolls/burger buns or with salad and French fries (chips) and tomato sauce.

  • You can make them into sausage or Kebab shape, like a Sheek kebabs. They are then easier to use with hot dog rolls.

  • You can add chopped green chillies, chopped coriander leaves and 1/2 tsp. Garam Masala powder, to give them an Indian taste.

  • When made with fish, burgers can be part of a healthy-options diet.
