  • minced beef (450g)
  • cheddar (4 tbsp grated)
  • onion powder (1 tsp)
  • garlic powder (1/2 tsp)
  • Salt and black pepper (to taste)


  • gherkins (4 small finely sliced)
  • olive oil (2 tbsp)
  • tomato (1 large chopped)
  • red onion (1 small finely sliced)
  • cucumber (1 cup finely sliced)
  • Salt and black pepper (to taste)

To Serve

  • avocados
  • iceberg lettuce leaves
  • mayonnaise (2 tbsp)


To prepare the burgers, add the mince beef, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper to a mixing bowl. Use your hands to combine.\n\nDivide the mixture into 8 even portions and form into burger patties with your hands.\n\nPreheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius, 170 for fan assisted.\n\nDivide the grated cheese evenly between four of the patties, arranging in the centre of each.\n\nTop each cheese covered patty with the remaining patties to create a lid. Push the patties together, pinching around the edges to seal the cheese firmly inside the burger.\n\nArrange the burgers on a shallow oven tray and bake for 20-22 minutes or until the meat is completely cooked through.\n\nWhilst the burgers are cooking, add the salad ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir well to combine.\n\nTo serve, arrange each burger on a bed of lettuce and top with a heaped teaspoon of mayonnaise. Serve alongside the salad with freshly sliced avocado.\n
