Quick Homemade Burger

Servings: 4 burgers


  • 250 g Extra lean minced beef
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander fresh works best but you can use dried or frozen coriander
  • ½ onion chopped 
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil 
  • Black pepper
  • Chilli optional
  •  To serve
  • Iceberg lettuce shredded
  • 2 wholemeal/ciabatta rolls
  • 1 to mato sliced
  • Lots a veggie sauce


  • Chop your onion into very small pieces. (Tip: I tend to blitz mine up, they need to be small so that they don't break the formation of your burger and make it fall apart).
  • Place all the burger ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  • Using your hands/ cookie cutter, shape into equal sized patties and place them on a lined baking tray.
  • Toast the burgers under the grill for 15 minutes, or until cooked through, turning halfway through.
  • Cut your rolls in half and toast under the grill on both sides if you wish (optional).
  • Top the bottom halves of the rolls with the lettuce and a slice of tomato.
  • Arrange the burger on top of the roll.
  • Top each burger with the other halves of the rolls, drizzle over the 'lots a veggie sauce' and serve.


This is a very simple burger recipe with very few ingredients and easy to put together.
You can actually grate some extra five a day options into your burger to increase the nutritional value such as grated courgette or carrot.
