Homemade Beef Burger Recipe

Sometimes there is nothing better than comfy food, to me a nice burger and chips is the ultimate comfy food.

The problem is some of the burgers that you can buy are just not as tasty as a nice homemade ones, not only that but can often be high in fact content.

Here is a nice homemade beef burger recipe that tastes incredible!


Homemade Beef Burger Recipe

  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6 Burgers

  • Cuisine: English


I love a good burger, store brought ones tend to be full of water though. These homemade beef burgers taste incredible and have a high meat content


  • 750 g Good quality beef mince (5% fat)
  • 1 whole Onion
  • 3 Cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tbsp Balsamic Glaze
  • Handful of parsley (Chopped)
  • 1 free-range egg yolk


  1. Finely chop the onion and garlic cloves
  2. Place all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mix well until fully combined
  3. Divide the mixture into 8 balls of the same size
  4. Press them down to shape them into burgers
  5. Heat a griddle pan or frying pan
  6. brush both sides of the burger with oil or Fry-light if going for slimming option
  7. Cook on both sides to ensure its fully cooked

Once the burgers are cooked they would go perfectly on some nice fresh cobs, some salad and a nice batch of sweet potato chips! If you want a nice seasoning for sweet potato chips, check out the recipe – how to make sweet potato chips

I would probably be tempted to cut the onions slightly smaller but better texture as well as potentially add some cheese to give it that extra taste/binding. All in all this is a great recipe and perfect for a nice weekend lunch or even an evening meal when time is a little limited.

Planning a BBQ? Why buy burgers? It takes very little time to make you own and you can really experiment with different flavours! I know in the summer I am going to be a little adventurous, I wouldnt mind trying pork and apple burgers or even lamb and mint….yummy!!
