1/2 teaspoon Chilli powder (or a good dash of tabasco)
Salt and pepper (to taste)
2 tablespoons Damson Chutney (or another sweet fruit chutney)
4 medium slices Castello Burger Blue Cheese Slices (Or blue cheese of your choice)
4 Brioche Burger Buns
1 tablespoon Olive oil ((or perhaps a little less))
Gently fry the onion in a little oil for about 10 minutes, till soft and just starting to caramelise
Mix together the mince, egg, spices and seasoning and breadcrumbs. I find this easiest to do with my hands so that all the spices are mixed through the meat mixture properly
Form into patties. I made 4 chunky burgers, but if you prefer a smaller burger, you could probably make six with this amount of mince
cover with cling film and put in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to rest
Heat a good quality frying pan, like the Oxo Good Grips pan, over a medium flame. Carefully add a little oil and then the burgers. Cook on a high heat for a minute, then reduce the heat to low and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes (depending on whether you want your burger pink in the middle). What you are looking for is a nice char on the outside, without overcooking the meat.
Turn the burgers over, turn the heat up to seal and cook for a minute. Then reduce the heat and place a slice of cheese on each patty
Continue to cook over a low heat till the cheese starts to melt (another 3 minutes or so)
Meanwhile, split the brioche buns and grill on the cut side till golden brown
Make up the burgers by placing each patty in a bun then topping with a good teaspoon of chutney.
