The Ultimate Burger

The Ultimate Burger

There’s nothing like a juicy, delicious burger to make your BBQ.

Here’s our favorite recipe for the ultimate one!


For the hamburger

  • 1kg freshly ground beef
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • 300g mature cheddar cut into 50g slices
  • 12 slices streaky dry cure bacon, grilled until crispy
  • 6 soft white buns, split in two
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Half a red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 Ripe beefsteak tomatoes, sliced
  • Handful of fresh, crisp lettuce

For the burger sauce

  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 1 tsp chopped capers
  • 1 tsp chopped gherkins, splash of Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper


  1. Press the ground meat into 180g patties. Heat a skillet or your barbecue. Season with sea salt and black pepper.
  2. Cook the underside for about three minutes, flip the patties, season again, top with a slice of cheese and cook for another three minutes.
  3. Remove the burgers from the barbecue and leave them to rest. Brush the buns with vegetable oil and place on the barbecue, cut-side down, for 30 seconds.
  4. Fill each bun with a hamburger, two slices of bacon, onion, a slice of tomato, lettuce and burger sauce.
  5. No need for cutlery, grab and enjoy!
