Step 1

Cut the buns in half and put to one side.

Step 2

Combine the beef with the herb, spring onion and plenty of seasoning.

Step 3

Using wet hands, shape into four patties the same size as the base of the buns and then carefully insert a piece of the cheese into the centre of each patty and close up - butter also works well.

Step 4

When ready to serve, turn your barbecue or grill to high and cook the burgers over a high heat until browned on both sides, turning once, suggested to leave slightly pink.

Step 5

Lightly toast your buns.

Step 6

To serve, place some greens on the base of the buns, followed by the tomato slices and then the burger and then top with some pickles and serve extra on the side along with some mustard, finely top with the bun top.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.


We liked this burger. I used fresh parsley as the fresh herb and I used blue cheese in the middle. I used some German mustard. My husband said several times how good it is. I made this for Only the Lonely in the Food, Friends, and Fun site.

I love a good burger and this one did not disappoint. I did use the blue cheese options. I made a larger indentation for my blue cheese and used a bit more than called for. Delicious!
