How to Make Homemade Beefburgers
Rate the burgers
Made with Machines'
This recipe is made using a mini chopper, a food processor and a burger press, the mini chopper will chop your onions nice and small, and make your breadcrumbs.
You then just pop everything into the food processor and with in less than a minute the burger mixture is mixed.
If you have a burger press it makes the burgers a bit more uniform, but if you don't have one, you can still just pat them into the shape.
You can make them thin, or large, add anything you like to make the burger to your own tastes.
They can be frozen (as long as fresh unfrozen beef was used) for later use
Really tasty and you know exactly what is in them, you can use low fat good quality mince, and also you get the praise from your family as they say "mmmmm the best burgers ever"
Homemade Beef Burgers
- 500g Minced Beef
- 1 Onion, Chopped Small
- 4tbs Bread Crumbs
- 1 Egg
- 1tbs Tomato Puree
- 1tbs Mixed Herbs
- 3/4 drops Worcestershire Sauce
- Salt and Pepper
- Take about 2 slices of bread and cut off the crusts, break up into smaller pieces, and put into the mini chopper, wiz until the breadcrumbs are small enough, you don't want them large. If you do not have a mini chopper then you could grate the bread, or buy ready made. Tip the breadcrumbs into a bowl or food processor.
- Peel your onion and chop finely or cut into quarters and put in your mini chopper and wiz until finely chopped.
- In the food processor put in the beef, egg, bread crumbs, onion, tomato purée, Worcestershire sauce, mixed herbs and salt and pepper. Mix on high until all mixed together, you might have to stop the food processor and move the mixture about and wiz again. If you don't have a food processor, just put all the ingredients into a bowl and get your hands in and mix together, it is a lovely messy job!
- Tip out mixture into a bowl, with your hands knead the mixture, a little until it holds together well. Then wrap with cling film and place in the fridge for at least half an hour, (which gives you time to clean up) I tend to make the mixture earlier in the day and leave for a couple of hours but you don't need to, half an hour is enough.
- Get out your burger press, and put the mixture in the press and make your burgers, with this you can make them as thin or thick as you wish. My son likes me to fill half the press with mixture, then a slice of cheese, then more mixture on top. This makes a lovely cheeseburger with the cheese in the centre, the cheese oozes out when you bite into it...delicious
- Cook on BBQ, Grill or however you like to cook them.

1. Cheese in the centre is very tasty, most cheese works well. Monterey Jack, blue cheese, any cheese you like
2. Different herbs and spices, curry powder to make them a bit spicy is nice too
3. Add garlic for a garlic burger.
4. Tomato, put a fresh slice of tomato in the centre either on its own or with some cheese and top with the mixture
5. Lean beef and make them slim for a lighter burger
6. BBQ sauce to replace the tomato purée and Worcestershire sauce, for an extra BBQ taste.
