Spiced Beef Burgers

Spiced Beef Burgers with Tomato & Chilli Relish By Celebrity Chef Edward Hayden


  • 1 ½lb/700g lean minced beef
  • 1 medium sized onion-finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2oz/50g breadcrumbs
  • 2oz/50g grated Avonmore cheddar & mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon sweet chilli jam
  • 1 large egg
  • Freshly chopped parsley
  • Seasoning

Other Ingredients

  • Floured baps
  • Mixed lettuce leaves
  • Natural yoghurt mixed with Sweet Chilli Sauce


  1. Put the minced beef into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add in the finely diced onion and garlic.
  3. Mix in the breadcrumbs, cheese and chopped parsley together with the tomato ketchup.
  4. Season the mixture with a little salt and pepper.
  5. Add in the egg and mash the mixture together with your hands using the egg as a binding agent.
  6. Divide the mixture into 8-9 pieces and using a little plain flour shape them into your desired shapes about ½ inch thick.
  7. Barbecue on either side for 2-3 minutes or until sealed evenly.
  8. Transfer the burgers to a cooler part of the barbecue and allow them to continue cooking for approximately 12-15 minutes (depending on your barbecue) until they are fully cooked. Cut one in the centre just to make sure they are cooked, as undercooked mince is a high risk product.
