Step 1

Preheat oven to 400f degrees. Slice bun in half and place on non stick cookie tray; top each half with cheese slices; set aside.

Step 2

In a large bowl combine beef, soy sauce, onions, carrots, egg, fennel seeds, ginger, cumin, coriander and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, mix well. Separate meat mixture into 4 portions and form into burgers; place on wire rack in an oven roaster; bake for 30 minutes or until no longer pink inside.

Step 3

While burgers are cooking make the cheese sauce in a nonstick saucepan over medium heat; combine pizza sauce, mushrooms and parsley, bring to simmer; add all of the shredded cheese and the other quarter teaspoon of cayenne. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Make a slurry of the cornstarch and the water; add to cheese mixture while stirring, simmer until thickened about 5 or 6 minutes.

Step 4

When the burgers have cooked for 20 minutes, place the tray of cheese topped buns in the oven with them, to toast and melt the cheese slices.

Step 5

To assemble:. Place burger on bottom half of the cheesed bun, spoon sauce over the burger and top with the other half of the cheesed bun. Serve with a green salad or oven fries.

This is a wonderful burger - not good for the waistline but Oh so good for the taste buds. The sauce just adds that special extra flavour I put a slice of sweet onion on the burger, added about 3 tablespoons of sauce and the mozza melted on top. Then when I bit into it I was in burger heaven, Great recipe Derf -It went right into my burger recipe book.
