Made with...


Mrs Elswood Relish:

  1. ​Finely chop the peppers, pickles & onion

  2. In a pan, add the sugar, vinegar & pickle juice and reduce by 1/3

  3. ​Add the chopped vegetables and continue cooking on a high temperature until you reach a thick, jam-like consistency (about 30mins), then allow to cool​

Dill Mayo:

  1. Add all ingredients into a bowl a stir, then set aside​​


  1. ​Split mince into 10, then mould into patties

  2. ​Rub a touch of sunflower oil on the burger patties to stop sticking, then put the patties on the BBQ

  3. ​Heavily season the top side of the patties with salt & pepper (don’t be afraid to overseason as a lot will fall off, and this helps to keep the burgers juicy)

  4. ​Once the bottom is caramelized, turn over and add the American cheese, this will give the cheese time to melt, and to keep the meat nice and pink

  5. ​Toast the buns, then put some dill mayo and lettuce on the bottom bun

  6. ​Once the meat is cooked and the cheese melted, put on a tray (this will rest the meat and ensure the bun doesn’t get wet)

  7. ​On top of the cheese, put some Mrs Elswood relish and sliced pickles followed by the top lid,

  8. ​Combine the bottom and top part and enjoy!
