Cheese Burgers

AuthorARY ZAUQ

Yields1 Serving
 450g beef mince (ideally 15-20% fat)
 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
 8 cheddar or Red Leicester slices
 1 tbsp chipotle paste
 5 tbsp tomato ketchup
 2 tbsp mayonnaise
 To serve
 4 large soft brioche buns (available in Marks & Spencer and Waitrose) or burger buns, halved
 4 thick leaves iceberg lettuces
 4 thick slices beefsteak tomatoes
 4 very thin slices red onions
 16 Bread & butter pickles (see Goes well with) or 2 gherkins, thinly sliced
1

Put the meat and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl and season with black pepper and 1 generous tsp salt. Mix together well, then shape the meat into 4 thin, flat burgers. Chill until needed. Can be made a day ahead. Combine the chipotle paste, ketchup and mayonnaise in a bowl to make a sauce.

2

Heat a gas or charcoal barbecue to high (or you can use a griddle pan on the hob). Cook the burgers over direct heat for 2 mins each side or until grill marks appear. Top each with 2 slices of cheese and cook for another 30 secs or until melted, then remove from the heat. Toast the buns for a few seconds on the cut-side.

3

Spread a little of the spicy sauce on the base of each bun and top with lettuce, tomato, a burger patty, onion and pickles. Top with the bun lid and devour immediately.
