Keen cook Lehlohonolo Chele of Mafikeng sends us this recipe. We added a few more ingredients to make the burgers even tastier.

Preparation time: 10 min

Cooking time: 20 min

Serves 6

You will need

Patties

1 kg lean beef mince

2 onions, very finely chopped

15-30 ml (1-2 tbsp) garlic and ginger paste

60 ml (¼ cup) soy sauce

500 ml (2 cups) dried breadcrumbs

1 egg, beaten

500 ml (2 cups) coarsely grated Cheddar cheese

salt and freshly ground black pepper

Mayonnaise sauce

60 ml (¼ cup) creamy mayonnaise

small onion, finely chopped

2 gherkins, finely chopped

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

15 ml (1 tbsp) parsley, finely chopped

salt and freshly ground black pepper

Serve with

6 wholewheat rolls

butter

lettuce leaves

12 slices of cheese

½ cucumber, sliced

about 125 ml (½ cup) sliced baby tomatoes

Method

Preheat the oven to 180 °C and lightly grease two or more baking sheets.

Patties

Mix all the ingredients together.

Shape the mixture into a long sausage and cut it into 18 equal-sized pieces.

Roll six into balls and flatten slightly to make thick patties and freeze the rest.

Place on the prepared baking sheets and bake in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until done.

Remove and set aside.

Mayonnaise sauce

Mix the ingredients together and chill in the fridge until needed.

Halve the rolls but don’t cut them right through, then butter lightly.

Layer a lettuce leaf on each roll, followed by 2 slices cheese, cucumber and a beef patty.

Add a spoonful of the sauce and sliced baby tomatoes.

Season with ground pepper and serve.
