Melting Middle Mini Burgers
Mini burgers with Italian flavours and a secret melting mozzarella in the centre.
- 500g minced / ground lean beef
- 1 onion (finely chopped or minced)
- 2 cloves garlic (finely chopped or minced)
- 1 heaped teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 heaped teaspoon dried basil
- mini mozzarella balls (1 per burger)
- salt and pepper
||Put the mince in a large bowl and loosen it up so it's not in one big clump. |
||Add the onion, garlic, herbs and a good pinch of salt and grind of pepper. Get your (clean) hands in and mix well, making sure all of the ingredients are properly combined. |
||Divide into six or seven evenly sized balls. Flatten each ball, place a mini mozzarella in the middle and gather the meat back round it so the cheese is in the middle of the ball. Flatten slightly into a burger shape. |
||Place the mini burgers on a covered plate and chill for at least half an hour to firm up. |
||To cook, grill for approx. 5 minutes on each side. |
||Serve with pickled cucumber and salad. |
Try with pork or a 50/50 pork/beef mix for a change.
