Mozzarella Beef Burgers

A decent beef burger always goes down well, so I thought: Why not give the beef pattie a stringy cheese center? So glad I did! And you will be too!

Mozzarella Beef Burgers

Serves 5

500 g Beef mince
1 onion, finely diced
3 cloves garlic, finely diced, finely grated, or crushed
1 egg, lightly whisked
1/4 Cup wholemeal breadcrumbs
1 Cup grated mozzarella
Burger buns of choice
Burger fillings: We used lettuce, bacon, fried mushrooms, garlic aioli, and chilli sauce

1. Combine beef, onion, garlic, egg, and breadcrumbs in a bowl. Split the mixture into 5 even parts to make 5 burgers. With each portion, split in two again and press the first half out in the palm of your hands, place some mozzarella in the center (as pictured), press out the second half and place over top of the first. Seal the edges. Repeat with the 4 other portions.

2. Heat a dash of oil in a large fry pan over a high heat. Add the burgers and cook for about 5 minutes each side, until cooked to your liking. A few minutes before taking the burgers off the heat, place another small amount of cheese on top and let it melt over the burgers.

3. Assemble burgers with your favorite fillings, and enjoy!
