Summer Burgers

The Sun is Still Here

Hooray for more sun shine.  I actually feel like a new person now after a good dose of vitamin D.  Well i never got round to doing the BBQ but i really craved burgers today.  Juicy mince, cheese, fried onion and a bun and i thought im going to have it. 

I just love the smell of burgers and sun cream together.  If over the weekend your looking for meaty get together food this is definitely one to try.

Weightwatchers Propoints per Serving 3
Serves 8 


For the burger

1 pack of Dunnes, Superquinn typically 95% Lean Mince
1 Egg white
1 tsp of salt 
Black ground pepper
1 tsp of Cumin
1 tsp of Sweat Paprika 
1 tsp of Worcester Sauce
Spray Oil

For the Buns

1 pack of Aldi Soft Crust Buns
2 Tbl of Tomato Ketchup
2 Tbl of Weightwatchers Salad Cream 
2 Slices of Low Low cheddar cheese 
1 Red onion sliced

Salad for garnish


Mix the mince,  egg white and all of the herbs and spices together and set aside in the fridge for 20 minutes.

In the meantime, in a non stick pan mist with a little spray oil.  When hot, add the sliced onion and cook on a medium heat until soft and slightly browning.  

Remove the onions from the pan and set aside for later. 

Remove the mince mix from the fridge and divide the mixture into 8 burgers.  Mist pan with spray oil and when hot add in the burgers.  Cook over a medium heat for roughly 6 minutes.  Do not use a spatula and squish the juice from the burger just leave them as they are.  Turn over the burger and cook for another 4-5 minutes.  Remove from the pan and set aside.

Mix the tomato ketchup and the salad cream together.

Half each bun and place soft side down for around 2 minutes.  Remove from heat and using a knife spread some of the tomato and salad cream mixture on the buns, add the burgers, divide the cheese slice into 4 each and place a quarter slice on top.  Add the caramelized onion and top with other half of bun.

Repeat with remaining burgers

Serve with a side salad.

Enjoy the Niptuck way so you don't have too!
