  • DifficultyMedium
500g minced Welsh beef
2 tsp English mustard
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 egg yolk
Salt and cracked black pepper
80g Gorgonzola piccante, crumbled
2 tbsp mayonnaise
8 mini burger buns
Salad leaves, to serve

For the Balsamic onions

1 large red onion, sliced
Small knob of butter
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar

Mix the beef, 1 tsp mustard, garlic and egg yolk together with your hands. Season and form into 16 flat patties.

Sandwich two patties with approximately 1 tsp crumbled Gorgonzola and press the edges together to form a tight seal. Chill for 30 minutes or more.

Meanwhile, fry the onions in a little butter until soft. Stir in the sugar and balsamic vinegar and cook for a further 1-2 minutes until caramelised.

Cook the burgers on a hot barbecue, griddle or under the grill for 3-4 minutes a side until cooked through.

Mix the mayonnaise and remaining English mustard and spread a little on each burger bun. Finally, top with salad leaves, Gorgonzola burger and caramelised onions.

Cook’s Tip: Make sure that the patties are well sealed as the melted Gorgonzola will escape very easily!
