Organic Burgers with Melted Cheese & Tomato Salsa


  • 450g minced beef or lamb
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped, sautéed in oil until golden and cooled
  • 1 tablesp. scallions, chopped
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 4 slices of blue or cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablesp. chilli oil
  • Lemon juice to taste
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 16 approx. cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 1-2 red onions, finely chopped
  • Handful chopped coriander


Mix the mince, onion, scallions and seasoning well together. With wet hands shape into 4 burgers. Flatten each one down with the palm of your hand until you have a nice even shape. This way they will cook more quickly and evenly. Keep in the fridge until ready to cook. Grill, barbecue or cook on a black ridge pan, until fully cooked, 4-5 minutes on each side. Meanwhile mix all the salsa ingredients together. Then place a spoonful of salsa on top of each burger and top with a slice of cheese. Grill, or cover the barbecue or pan and continue to cook for another minute until the cheese has melted.
