Fancy cheese burger

Preparation and cooking time
20 min
4 persons
  • 450g/1 lb quality minced beef
  • 1 tbsp A-1 sauce, or to taste
  • Worcestershire sauce, to taste
  • 1 tbsp tomato sauce
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 4 burger buns
  • olive oil
  • 2 Pink lady apples, sliced at the last minute to serve
  • 50g/1.7 oz blue cheese
  • A pinch of watercress

Divide the meat into four, roll each piece into a ball, then flatten, so they’re slightly larger than the buns. In a small bowl, mix the A-1 sauce, worcestershire and tomato sauces together – adding as much or as little of each as you like to taste – then stirin the chopped shallots and set aside.Preheat a large griddle or frying panfor about 4 minutes on a high heat.Turn the heat down to medium. Place the burgers on the griddle or in the pan and use a spatula to lightly press down on them, making sure the burger is in full contact. Cook them to your liking for 3 or 4 minutes on each side. Halve the buns, then pop them on a baking tray and warm in the oven for about 8–10 minutes. To build your burgers, spread the shallot sauce on the bun bases, add a few slices of crisp apple, followed by the burger and a nice piece of blue cheese. Finish with a pinch of watercress, then serve immediately.
