Instructions
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, salt and a good pinch of pepper. Mix until well combined. Shape the mixture into burger patties a little wider than the burger buns (they shrink during cooking!). You should get 1 patty per person.

2

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 for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until almost cooked through. 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 for 4-5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the buns are warmed through.

3

While the burger patties are cooking, thinly slice the brown onion. Roughly chop the cos lettuce. Cut the cucumber into 1cm chunks. Thinly slice the tomato.

4

Return the medium frying pan to a medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, or until soft. Add the brown sugar, water and 2/3 of the balsamic vinegar and cook for a further 3-5 minutes, or until the liquid has evaporated and the onion is caramelised.

5

While the onions are caramelising, combine the honey, olive oil (2 tsp for 2 people / 1 tbs for 4 people) and the remaining balsamic vinegar in a medium bowl. Add the cos lettuce (reserve a handful for the burgers) and cucumber to the bowl and toss to coat. TIP: Dress the salad just before serving to keep the leaves crisp.

6

Slice the burger buns in half. Spread the base of each bun with a dollop of mayonnaise. Top with a beef patty, caramelised onions, a tomato slice and a handful of lettuce. Serve the salad on the side.
