Make the beef patties

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.

Cook the beef patties

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.

slice tomato

While the patties are cooking, thinly slice the brown onion. Thinly slice the pear (see ingredients list). Thinly slice the tomato.

Caramelise the onions

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

Make the salad

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 vinegar (for the salad) and olive oil (1 tbs for 2 people / 2 tbs for 4 people) and toss to coat.

TIP: Dress the salad just before serving to keep the leaves crisp.

Serve up

Slice the burger buns in half. Spread the base of each bun with dill & parsley mayonnaise. Top with a beef patty, caramelised onion, tomato and some reserved spinach & rocket mix. Serve with the rocket-pear salad.
