Homemade beef burgers
Jamie’s Burgers - adapted to be lower sodium
12 water biscuits or few matzos, crushed, or two handfuls white breadcrumbs – salt free
500g minced beef
1 large egg
1 tsp mustard (or mustard powder – to your taste)
A generous few shakes of mixed spices (I used a combo of cumin, coriander, ginger and cloves, ground in spice grinder)
Mix all the ingredients except the olive oil and shape into patties. Drizzle with olive oil and leave covered in the fridge for a bit.
When you are ready to cook them, fry until cooked – about 5 minutes on medium to high heat.
Garnish with lettuce, tomato and fried onions (compulsory in our house) on freshly baked rolls. Serve with oven-baked chips if you want them - try adding herbs, fresh rosemary, lemon juice and olive oil, with just a sprinkle of lo-Salt. And here's the link to home made tomato sauce. My favourite.
