Homemade Hamburger Patties

100_5018This is an incredibly basic recipe with endless possibilities. Add all your favourite trimmings and finish with the freshest buns available- I find seeded soft buns work best.  Serve with crispy potato wedges and you might never crave fast food again!


  • 500g low fat beef mince
  • 5 ml salt
  • ground pepper
  • 10 ml Steak & Chop Spice
  • 2 parsley sprigs, finely chopped
  • 1 tbs Worcester Sauce
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 30 ml bread crumbs
  • 1 tbs oil


  1. Start by mixing the mince and flavouring in a large bowl.
  2. Add the egg and mix before adding the bread crumbs. Ensure that everything is properly mixed.
  3. If you find that the mixture is too sticky, add a little more bread crumbs. You should be able to form a ball of meat that doesn’t stick to your hands or breaks when flattened.
  4. Make 5-6 even sized balls of meat. Gently press each flat in the palm of your hands to about 1,5 cm.
  5. Fry on medium heat for about 3 min on each side or until cooked through.

Makes 5 to 6 large patties.
