Homemade Cheese Burgers

This easy recipe is just the thing for impromptu summer BBQ's - and completely lactose free!


Step 1
  • Heat together the oil and butter in a large frying or sauté pan set over a medium heat.
Step 2
  • Add the onions and a little salt, allowing them to sweat for 10-12 minutes until softened.
Step 3
  • Stir in the sugar and balsamic vinegar and continue to cook over a reduced heat for a further 15-20 minutes until dark and glossy in appearance; stir from time to time to prevent burning.
Step 4
  • Preheat a grill or barbecue to a high setting.
Step 5
  • Scrunch together the beef mince with plenty of seasoning in a large mixing bowl; cover and chill for 10 minutes.
Step 6
  • Divide the mince into four balls before shaping into thin patties between your palms; press your thumb lightly into their centres to leave an imprint.
Step 7
  • Grill the burgers for 2-3 minutes on both sides until cooked and juicy; cook the burgers for an additional minute on both sides should you wish for a more well-done burger.
Step 8
  • Toast the buns if desired before topping with shredded lettuce, a slice of tomato and a cooked patty.
Step 9
  • Top with slices of Lactofree® Cheese and some stewed onions before serving.
