What’s the serving size?

Makes 4


What do I need?

For the burgers

  • 800g beef mince
  • ½ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • Soy sauce to taste
  • Worcestershire sauce to taste
  • Tabasco sauce to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

For the caramelised onions

  • 4 medium onions, sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ tsp salt

For the toppings

  • Extra blue cheese if desired
  • Streaky bacon, cooked nice and crispy
  • Lettuce
  • 4 burger buns
  • Dill pickles (if desired)

How do I make it?

  1. Begin by making the caramelised onions by cooking onions and sugar in hot oil over low heat for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring often. Stir in ¼ cup water, vinegar, and ¼ tsp salt.
  2. Make burger patties by blending the mushrooms in a food processor until smooth. Add the pureed mushrooms to a large bowl and mix with the mince, soy, Worcestershire and Tabasco sauces.
  3. Shape the burgers into 8 patties using your hands and then place 1/8 cup of blue cheese on top of 4 of the patties. Cover each of blue-cheese patties with one of the plain patties and shape into a burger shape using your hands – make sure you seal the blue cheese inside.
  4. Brush the burgers with olive oil and add them to a grill pan over medium-high heat. Cook until the burger until it measures 75C when tested with a thermometer.
  5. Serve on the burger buns (you can toast them if you like) with the caramelised onion, streaky bacon and other toppings of your choice.
