Tasty Beef Burger Patties

I don’t know about you, but I love a good homemade burger and my kids do too! Beef burgers make an easy at-home dinner, served with some fries or a side salad. I like to cut up all the burger toppings and lay them out on a tray so my kids can customise their burgers.

This recipe will make around six patties depending on the size. I tend to double the recipe and freeze what I don’t use so that I always have patties on hand for lazy nights. You can also freeze these patties cooked and just reheat them when needed.

Here is a list of some of my favourite burger toppings!
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Cheese
  • Bacon
  • Beetroot
  • Pickles


  • 500 grams beef mince (good quality)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix well.
  2. Using your hands, shape the mince into equal sized patties and press down with baking paper.
  3. Cook in a frying pan with a little olive oil until cooked through.
  4. Serve on a toasted bun with your favourite burger toppings.
