for the burgers

  • 450 grams ground beef
  • 4 tbsp cheddar grated
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

for the salad

  • 4 small gherkins finely sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large tomato chopped
  • 1 small red onion finely sliced
  • 1 cup cucumber finely sliced
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

to serve

  • 2 avocados sliced
  • 2 leaves iceberg lettuce
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise


  • To prepare the burgers, add the minced beef, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper to a mixing bowl. Use your hands to combine.
  • Divide the mixture into 8 even portions and form into burger patties with your hands.
  • Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius, 170 for fan assisted.
  • Divide the grated cheese evenly between four of the patties, arranging in the centre of each.
  • Top each cheese covered patty with the remaining patties to create a lid. Push the patties together, pinching around the edges to seal the cheese firmly inside the burger.
  • Arrange the burgers on a shallow oven tray and bake for 20-22 minutes or until the meat is completely cooked through.
  • Whilst the burgers are cooking, add the salad ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir well to combine.
  • To serve, arrange each burger on a bed of lettuce and top with a heaped teaspoon of mayonnaise. Serve alongside the salad with freshly sliced avocado.
