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


1. Put the mince in a large bowl and loosen it up so it's not in one big clump.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. Place the mini burgers on a covered plate and chill for at least half an hour to firm up.
5. To cook, grill for approx. 5 minutes on each side.
6. Serve with pickled cucumber and salad.


Try with pork or a 50/50 pork/beef mix for a change.
