Everyone loves a juicy homemade hamburger, serve with chips for a winning meal.
- 450 grams beef mince
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup(s) chopped onion
- 1/4 cup(s) fine dried bread crumbs
- 1 tablespoon(s) Worcestershire Sauce
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
- 1/4 teaspoon(s) pepper
- 4 hamburger buns split
- 1/4 cup(s) mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup(s) ketchup
- 4 iceberg lettuce leaves, washed
- 4 thin slices red onion
- 1 firm-ripe tomato, cored and thinly sliced
In a bowl, mix mince, egg, onion, bread crumbs, Worcestershire, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper until well blended.
Divide mixture into four equal portions and shape each into a patty about 4 inches wide.
Lay burgers on an oiled barbecue grill over a solid bed of hot coals or high heat on a gas grill (you can hold your hand at grill level only 2 to 3 seconds); close lid on gas grill. Cook burgers, turning once, until browned on both sides and no longer pink inside (cut to test), 7 to 8 minutes total. Remove from grill.
Lay buns, cut side down, on grill and cook until lightly toasted, 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Spread mayonnaise and ketchup on bun bottoms. Add lettuce, tomato, burger, onion, and salt and pepper to taste. Set bun tops in place.
