Tomato sauce is always classic on a burger, but this time we’ve swapped it out for two of our other favourite classics; garlic aioli and caramelised onion. Served with a fresh rocket-pear salad, you’ll be thanking us all night for this easy and mouth-watering meal.

1

Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). In a medium bowl, combine the garlic, beef mince, fine breadcrumbs (see ingredients list), egg, Italian herbs, the salt and a good pinch of pepper. Shape the mixture into patties a little wider than your burger buns (they shrink during cooking!). You should get 1 patty per person.

In a medium frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the beef patties and cook until almost cooked through, 4-5 minutes each side. Transfer to an oven tray lined with baking paper and sprinkle each patty with shredded Cheddar cheese. Place the bake-at-home burger buns on the same tray and bake until the cheese is melted and the buns are warmed through, 4-5 minutes.

While the onion is caramelising, place the spinach & rocket mix (reserve a handful for the burgers) and pear in a medium bowl. Add the balsamic vinaigrette dressing (see ingredients list) and toss to coat. TIP: Dress the salad just before serving to keep the leaves crisp.
