Step 1

Combine mince, egg, salt, pepper and other seasoning

Step 2

Make meat mixture into a ball and divide in two portions
+first split the mix in half
+then do the same again to each new ball
+do this as many times until you reach a size you're happy with

Step 3

Make a large pan hot and proceed to place burgers in it flipping them occasionally until cooked to desired taste
+if you want cheese then add to topside of burger just before taking it off the heat so as to let it melt
+preferably do burgers in rounds of how many people are eating them so they don't go cold
+unused burgers can then be out in the fridge or frozen

Step 4

Caramelised Onions
+slice onion in half then into long strands
+in a pan fry the onions with salt, pepper and sugar
+when soft and translucent they are ready

Step 5

Assembly-this is where burgers become personal but some things to note...
+leaving items like tomatoes in contact with the bun can cause the bread to become soggy
+if you put buns in the oven briefly they often become softer/lighter
+using everything will not always make the best burger!!
