A homemade double bacon cheeseburger that defies delicious using fresh locally sourced ingredients
Serves: 3
  • 500g topside mince
  • 3 burger buns (go for fresh baked)
  • 6 slices tasty cheese
  • 6 slices of middle eye bacon (I used polish bacon)
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ tomato, thinly sliced
  • Dijon mustard
  • Tomato chutney
  • Salt & pepper
Prepare and Cook the Burger
  1. Prepare grill for direct medium heat & preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F
  2. Divide mince into three equal portions, 180g each and gently form into patties. Keep in mind the patties will shrink slightly when cooking so try and form them slightly larger than your burger bun, use your thumb to lightly press and indent into the center of the pattie to avoid swelling when cooking. Refrigerate until 30 minutes before cooking.
  3. Place bacon over a layer of cooking paper in an oven proof dish and cook in the oven for 10-15 minutes until slightly crispy. Remove and set aside once done.
  4. Using a wire brush, clean grill grates before oiling slightly with cooking oil. Season patties lightly with salt and pepper before placing directly over heat.
  5. Cook patties for around 4-5 minutes per side, use an instant read thermometer to check the temperature and remove from heat at 54°C / 130°F. Let patties rest for 5 minutes while preparing the remaining ingredients.
Assembling the Burger
  1. Toast each half of burger buns lightly over direct heat. Spread mustard on bottom bun and place a slice of cheese. Next comes the pattie and another slice of cheese and two slices of bacon. Top with tomato and onion before covering with the top bun with tomato chutney, press together slightly.
  2. Either in the oven or the grill, place the burgers and heat until the cheese starts to melt. Remove and serve immediately.
