Try this all time American classic, which is so much tastier when you make it yourself. Elvis would have loved to get his hands on this recipe!
450g/1lb minced beef
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp American mustard
110g/4oz Monteray Jack cheese or strong cheddar, grated
1 tbsp chopped fresh chives
1 tbsp coarsely ground black pepper
4 slices of crispy cooked streaky bacon
1 baby gem lettuce
2 tomatoes, sliced
1 small red onion, sliced into rings
4 burger buns
Mix the beef with the garlic and mustard.
Mix the cheese with the chives and set aside.
Divide the beef into four and form into burger shapes. Make a deep indentation into each of the burgers and place a spoonful of cheese into the indentation. Shape the beef around the cheese until it is totally sealed. Sprinkle a little pepper over each burger and place in the fridge until ready to cook.
Cook the burgers in a pan or under the grill, for 4 minutes each side for rare, 6 minutes for medium and 8-9 minutes for well done.
Toast the burger buns on the cut-side. Load the buns with the burger, top with the bacon, tomatoes, lettuce and sliced onion and serve with fries.
