Wild Garlic or Chive or Spring Onion Hamburgers

Thank you for your rating!

These juicy hamburgers are filled with flavour and the perfect quick and easy meal. Serve with chips, a green salad and some mayonnaise. Taken from Master It: How To Cook Today by Rory O’Connell.

Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, about 50g
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 450g freshly minced beef
  • 2 tablespoons beaten egg
  • 60g finely chopped wild garlic leaves or chives or spring onion greens
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme leaves
  • Maldon sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil

Instructions

  1. Grate the onion and garlic on a Microplane or a very fine grater and put into a bowl with the meat. The onion and garlic will break down to a thick juice when they are grated. This is exactly what you want.
  2. Add the beaten egg, chopped garlic leaves, chives or greens and thyme leaves, and season with salt and pepper. Mix well. I always mix the ingredients with my hands, as I feel this keeps the mixture light and not too compacted. Fry a morsel in a pan and taste to check that the seasoning is correct. Form into 2 large or 4 small burgers.
  3. Heat a heavy-based grill or frying pan until quite hot. Dab a little olive oil on to the surface of the burgers and place in the pan. As the meat starts to colour, turn the heat down a little. Turn regularly during the cooking, as the egg in the recipe will cause the burgers to brown quite quickly. They will take about 15 minutes to cook through.
  4. If you want to assemble the burgers more than 1 hour in advance, you could chop the onion finely and sweat it in a little olive oil or butter to cook it through with no colour. Allow the onion to cool completely before mixing it with the raw minced beef.
