• 4 burger buns
  • 4 slices of cheese (cheddar, gouda, whatever you like)
  • 4 slices of bacon, cooked
  • 600g minced beef
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Onion slices
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Tomato slices


  1. Divide the minced beef into 4 portions and form 4 burgers.
  2. Season with salt and pepper just before grilling.
  3. Place the burgers on the oven grill. Put a tray underneath to catch all the drippings.
  4. Grill for 5-7 minutes on each side, depending on your  desired doneness.
  5. The longer they grill, the drier they become. The ideal grilling is when the juices run clear.
  6. Place a slice of cheese on each burger.
  7. Grill for 1 minute until the cheese starts to melt.
  8. Split the buns in half and add your desired toppings (ketchup, lettuce, onion etc.) along with your beef with melted cheese and the bacon.
