Burgers are without a doubt my favourite food of all, but it is very important for me how they are prepared, what meat is used and what they are served with. That is why I make them at home quite often. If you like burgers, I am sure you will love this recipe. 

Ingredients (makes 4) 

  • 500g Lean Beef Mince (no more than 5-10% fat)
  • 1 Egg
  • 4 Cloves Garlic
  • 1,5 Onion
  • 4 Wholegrain Rolls (I made my own)
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 100 ml quark
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil or Rapeseed Oil
  • 1 medium tomato
  • baby spinach
  • rucola
  • jalapeños or chilli spread (home made)


  • slice the onion into very small pieces and crush 2 cloves of garlic
  • in a bowl mix the mince, a pinch of salt and pepper, crushed garlic, egg and onion together
  • divide the mixture into 4 equal pieces and gently form it into a burger shape
  • place your 4 burgers on a plate, cover with clingfilm and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes (this makes them firm)
  • make guacamole - remove the skin from the 1/2 of avocado and place the avocado in a bowl. Crush up 1 clove garlic and mix with fork until it is a smooth paste, add salt and pepper to taste and mix
  • preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius and prepare a baking tray with tin foil. Place the tray in the oven to heat up first.
  • lightly brush each burger with oil (to stop it sticking) and place on the tray and place in the oven for 5-10 minutes.
  • take the burgers out and turn them over and place back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes or until they are cooked through.
  • preheat 1 tsp of oil in a pan, squeeze garlic and add baby spinach and stir fry
  • cut the buns in half and toast
  • put guacamole on one half of toasted bun and add spinach
  • put quark on the other half of the toasted bun and add chilli spread or jalapeños, then add rucola, slice of tomato and slice of onion
  • when the burgers are ready remove them from the oven and put them on the burger buns 

I served them with sweet potato oven baked chips.
