Ingredients

Burger Square 346X318
  • 800g ground beef (min 20% fat)
  • 8-12 slices of bacon
  • 4 slices of cheddar
  • 4 burger buns
  • 2 lettuce leaves
  • 2 beef tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • BBQ sauce
  • Dressing:
  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp Heinz ketchup
  • 100g cucumber, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp horseradish sauce (optional)
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper

Instructions

    In the kitchen:

  • 01 Divide the ground beef into 4 and using the Weber Burger Press, shape your patties. Season with salt and pepper and refrigerate until you are ready to barbecue them.
  • 02 To make the burger dressing, stir all the ingredients together. Wash the vegetables. Tear lettuce into coarse pieces, and cut the tomatoes into neat slices. Peel the onion and chop finely.
  • At the barbecue:

  • 01 Preheat the barbecue for medium direct heat (225 – 250ºC).
  • 02 Place the burgers over the direct heat. Close the lid and grill for 3 minutes before turning and closing the lid again. Use a Weber Instant Read Thermometer to check the internal temperature (75ºC).
  • 03 Brush the burgers with BBQ sauce at the very last minute and put a slice of cheese on top of each burger to melt. Put the bacon over the direct heat to cook.
  • 04 Remove the burgers from the grill and let them rest so the juices can collect.
  • 05 Brush the burger buns with a little olive oil and barbecue until lightly golden.
  • 06 Assemble the burgers and serve.
