Barbecued Beef Burger with Blue Cheese & Caramelised Onion Chutney

Ingredients :

675g minced beef *

2 medium onions, finely chopped *

Seasoning of coarse sea salt, ground black pepper and coriander to taste

4 tablespoons caramalised onion chutney – Perfect Pickles *

2 teaspoons rapeseed oil *

200g blue cheese, sliced *

4 burger rolls, halved – The Flour Stall or The Hoxton Bakehouse *


Method :

Preheat the barbecue to medium-high heat.

Place the mince in a large bowl and add the seasoning. Add the finely chopped onion and 2 tablespoons caramalised onion chutney and mix together.

Divide the mince into 4 portions and gently form into 4 burgers, each about 2cm thick. Lightly coat each burger with rapeseed oil.

Place the burgers on your BBQ’s grate. Cover the barbecue and sear the first side for approx. 3 minutes. Flip the burgers, cover  and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes or to your preferred taste. In the last minute of cooking, add a slab of blue cheese to the top of each burger and allow to melt.

Remove the burgers from the BBQ and place on the bottom half of the roll.  Add a spoon of onion chutney and serve immediately!  Serve with a mixed salad.
