They only take about five minutes to prepare, then around fifteen minutes to cook. The time will vary depending on how thick you make your burgers.

How to Make Easy Homemade Burgers

You can either buy ready-made mince or use a mincer to make your own.  Ready-made mince tends to be of a poorer quality, in that it will have a higher fat content than if you simply purchase an economical cut of meat and mince it yourself. 

Very cheap mince, ready-made, can include skin, noses, and similar - which won't necessarily make you ill, but will certainly compromise the quality of the product.

Take a large mixing bowl and add your mince to this.  Dice an onion and a pepper - or two peppers if you like it more spicy.  Using two colours of pepper adds visual impact to the finished meal.  Or you could use two halves of two different peppers if you wished to.

Stir in herbs and spices to taste.  Add some salt if you wish to.  The choice of herbs and spices is entirely up to you.  Chili pepper, black pepper, cayenne pepper, turmeric, garlic, chopped basil, dill or allspice work fine - though not all at once, of course!

Add two eggs to bind all this together.

Sprinkle flour on a baking tray, and share the mix into equal portions.  The flour will help bind the burgers together.

To cook, you can either wrap the burgers in foil for a BBQ or to grill them, or you can drop them into a hot frying pan with a splash of oil.  As with all meat product, to make sure they are thoroughly cooked before eating them on a bun or with salad, or however else you may wish to serve them.
