  • 2 sesame buns (divided) (toasted or steamed) (TOASTED: on griddle/ hot grill or hot frying pan and STEAMED: in microwave for 25 secs per bun)
  • 8 dill cucumber slices (when you search for gherkins or pickles in a grocery store, you mostly get sweet spiced pickles, they are NOT the ones we are looking for. On the same shelf you can find dill cucumbers (whole cucumbers). That’s what we are looking for over here)
  • 1 brown onion sliced
  • Some ketchup
  • Some mustard sauce
  • 4 processed cheese slices (we don’t get orange colour cheese in Australia; maybe in US u can but there is no such difference in the taste of orange cheese and normal cheese. You can use Krafts or any other famous brand)
  • 250 gms beef mince (processed without any seasoning in a food processor)
  • Some salt and pepper


-For meat patties, process beef mince in food processor and then on a baking sheet/ parchment paper/ butter paper/ baking paper/ wax sheet put 2 balls of this meat and with oiled hands spread and make round patties a little bit bigger than your bun in diameter because mincemeat have tendency to shrink when cooked/ grilled.

-Freeze them for 30 minutes.

-Heat your non-stick grill and cook the meat. Season each side with salt and pepper and grill each side for 1 minute.

-Make sure your burger is dressed when the meat is ready to enjoy hot and fresh burger.

-Bun have two parts, the head part with sesame seed is the “crown” and the bottom base part is the “heal” . Now on the heal put one slice of cheese and on the crown drizzle some tomato ketchup and some mustard sauce, place some onion, 4 pickles (per burger) and then another slice of cheese.

-Now place the fresh hot meat patty rite from the grill onto your cheese slice on the heal and cover with the crown. So the sequence is burger heal (base), cheese slice, meat, cheese slice, onion, pickles, mustard, ketchup and top of the bun (crown).

-Repeat the same process with the other bun.

-Serve hot with chips.

Classic Hamburger

This is Burger Monster’s classic recipe of Hamburgers. It is not necessary that hamburgers should have ham in them, they can be made without ham, just with some extra rich in cholesterol ingredients like fried egg, cheese, etc. but they turn out amazing. Do try my recipe and you can make it healthy by using turkey meat, low fat cheese, avocado, etc. and enjoy ……
