500g steak mince
½ red onion
A Splash Worcestershire sauce
½ tsp celery salt
A Pinch chilli flakes
4 brioche burger buns, toasted
8 slices Swiss Cheese, lime Emmental
Mrs Elswood’s Burger Gherkins
Lettuce and tomato to serve
The Mrs Elswood Secret Burger Sauce!
4 tbsp Full fat Mayonnaise
2 tbsp Tomato Ketchup
2 tsp Mustard
2 tsp Pickle juice
10x Finely chopped Mrs Elswood Burger Gherkins
¼ Finely chopped Red Onion
Freshly cracked Black Pepper & Sea Salt to taste
Make the burger sauce ahead of time, this sauce can be stored in the fridge overnight. In a mixing bowl, combine all the sauce ingredients together. Adjust the seasoning to your preference!
Put the mince in a bowl. Grate the onion on the coarse side of a box grater (You may have to discard the tough outer layers). Add the grated onion to the mince bowl along with a splash of Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, and chilli flakes. Mix everything with your hands and divide into 8 equal portions.
Flatten each portion into a thin burger patty. You can use clean hands or the back of a spatula.
On a non-stick frying pan on high heat, cook the burgers for 2 minutes on each side. You may not be able to fit all at once, so transfer cooked patties onto an oven tray with a slice of cheese on top. When all have been cooked place the tray in the middle of an oven at 180C, so the cheese melts.
If you are using a BBQ, cook burger patties until they are cooked thoroughly and add a slice of cheese until it melts.
Put some sauce on each bun base. Add lettuce and a couple of slices of tomato. Stack up 2 patties with cheese, then add sauce, and gherkins. Add more sauce, the bun tops and skewer each to hold it together.
