Homemade Hamburger

I believe there's nothing better than a home made Hamburger cooked on the barbecue. It's also a great way to introduce extra veggies into your kids meals.

Servings 6


  • 500g beef mince (approx.)
  • 25g fresh bread crumbs (½ cup)
  • 1 red onion/s -quartered
  • 1 clove/s garlic -crushed
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil or parsley -leaves picked
  • 1 carrot/s (small) quartered
  • 1 zucchini/s (small) quartered
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 free-range or organic egg/s
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 burger buns (to serve)


  • In a food processor or Thermomix, process your bread to make crumbs and set aside. Thermomix 30 seconds, speed 8.
  • Now process the onion, garlic, herbs and vegetables and process until finely chopped. Thermomix 10 seconds, speed 5.
  • Add the mince, egg, and seasoning and combine on reverse. Thermomix 30 seconds reverse speed 4 (you may need to scrape the sides a few times).
  • If you don't have a reverse setting on your processor, (or want to make these the good old fashioned way), then just throw it all in a bowl (grate all of your vegetables first), and mix with your hands by squeezing the mixture together.
  • If the mixture feels wet, add more breadcrumbs until you are able to form firm patties.
  • Form you patties into the sizes you want (I do some big for adults, some small for the kids), throw on the BBQ or in a pan and serve how you like them.


  • I always put all of my accompaniments in little bowls on the table and my kids build their own. Personally, I love grated carrot, grated cheese, lettuce or some type of greens, sprouts, grilled onions, grated fresh beetroot, pieces of fresh pineapple for a Hawaiian touch.


  • I love to char the inside of the burger buns on the BBQ to slightly to toast them. It adds a great flavour.
  • I also melt the cheese on the burger patty too (by closing the BBQ hood for the last few minutes).
