Homemade BBQ Burger Recipe!

Have you ever fancied making your own burgers? If you have or even if you haven’t we’re here to help you out. My husband makes the best burgers, they’re full of flavour and perfect for throwing on the BBQ.

What You’ll Need

400g Minced Beef

8 Beef Sausages (Aprrox 400g-500g)

1 Green Pepper

1/2 Red Onion

Pinch of  Sage

Pinch of Basil

Pinch of Cumin

1 TSP Fennel Seeds

Step 1

Finely chop the red onion and green pepper in a food processor. Then place in a large bowl. Slice open the skins of the sausages and add the meat to your bowl.

Step 2

Add in the minced beef, sage, basil, cumin and fennel seeds. Combine the mixture by squeezing it together with your hands. Keep squeezing until everything is evenly mixed.

Step 3

Now we need to flatten and shape our burger mixture. Take some of the mixture and place on a clean surface or meat board. Flatten to about 1cm thick and use a large round cutter to cut into burgers. You can also mould them into shape with your hands. Repeat until all the mixture is used up.

Then either grill or place on the BBQ. They take approx 15-20 mins to cook with occasional turning.

Honey & Mustard BBQ Chicken Marinade Recipe

As Bank Holiday Monday approaches it’s a safe bet that many of us will be hoping for sunshine so we can break out the BBQ. But why settle for cooking meat straight from the packet, how about livening it up with sauces and marinades. Today I’m going to share a gorgeous Honey & Mustard Chicken Marinade that was given to me by the good folks at Rachel’s Organics.

What You’ll Need

Large bunch of flat leaf parsley

2 garlic cloves

1tsp ground cumin

1tsp ground coriander

1 red chill, de-seeded

2 tbsp whole grain mustard

2 tbsp clear honey

4 tbsp Rachel’s Greek Style Honey Bio Live Yogurt

Olive oil

1 jointed chicken 1.5kg or 800g of chicken portions

Step 1

To make the marinade place all the ingredients except the yogurt and oil into a food processor and blitz until smooth.  With the motor still running add the yogurt and a swig of olive oil and pulse briefly.

Step 2

Pour the marinade over the chicken pieces and leave to marinade for at least ½ hour or overnight in the fridge.

Step 3

Pre-heat the barbeque or grill on high. Cook one side and then the other until golden. Check the chicken is cooked all the way through and then serve with lemon wedges.

Note. This recipe works very well with either Chicken Drumsticks or pieces threaded onto a kebab stick as we did here.
