Brush the cooked Burger with:

1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon of tabasco sauce



1 finely sliced red onion - marinated in a splash of white wine vinegar

2 gherkins – sliced

4 burger buns or blaas

4-8 rashers -  smoked streaky are good

Slices of The Little Milk Company Cheddar or Little Milk Company Organic Cashel Blue!

Slices of tomato and some chopped lettuce



Slice thinly the red onion and put in a bowl to marinade with a good tablespoon of white wine vinegar.  Set aside until assembling the cooked burger.


Chop another onion finely.   Cook in a frying pan till transparent – leave to cool.

In a mixing bowl, combine gently the mince, egg yolk, cooked chopped onion, Worchester sauce, soy sauce, finely chopped herbs and salt and pepper. 

Divide into 4 and shape.

Flip again, brushing the other cooked side with mild mustard and tabasco sauce

Put the cheese on top and let the burgers rest and the lovely cheese melt, meanwhile fry up your rashers.

Combine your sauce ingredients and put a dollop on each bun.  Place your cooked burger on top with cheese, followed by your rashers, a sliced gherkin, some lettuce, tomato and finally the top bun or blaa!
