Directions

    STEP - 1

    Lightly oil grill& heat BBQ to medium.

    STEP - 2

    Whisk egg in a bowl& add next 6 ingredients.

    STEP - 3

    Add any of the “stir-ins” that appeal to you.

    STEP - 4

    Crumble in beef& using your hands or a fork, gently mix together.

    STEP - 5

    Handle the meat as little as possible – the more you work it, the tougher it gets.

    STEP - 6

    Gently shape (don’t firmly press) mixture into burgers about ¾ inch thick.

    STEP - 7

    Using your thumb, make a shallow depression in the centre of each burger to prevent puffing up during cooking.

    STEP - 8

    Place burgers on the grill, close lid& BBQ until NO LONGER PINK INSIDE, turning once, about 6 – 8 minutes per side.

    STEP - 9

    An instant read thermometer should read 160F.

    STEP - 10

    Don't abuse your burgers by pressing with a spatula, pricking with a fork or turning frequently as precious juices will be lost!

    STEP - 11

    Tuck into a warm crusty bun& add your favourite toppings.
