Combine beef & pork mince, sauces, mustard, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl and mix well. If the mixture is a little too wet, just add a handful of breadcrumbs to firm up the mix. Form 8, thin patties from the beef, size should be slightly bigger than a slice of cheese.
Set aside in fridge for 10 minutes.
Cut each cheese slice into 4 pieces and stack on top of each other
Get your remaining burger accompaniments ready to go, light toast your buns in the oven.
Carefully place a slice of cheese in the center of burger pattie. Place second burger pattie on top, pinching the edges to form a tight seal. Cup each pattie with your hands to round out the edges and press on the top to flatten slightly.
Transfer burger patties to a plate. Repeat with the remaining portions of meat and cheese to form 4 patties in total. Refrigerate while you prepare your pan or BBQ while you whip up some mac‘n’cheese or homemade french fries you plan on having with your burger.
Now cook burgers to your preference either in the pan or on the BBQ. Try not to press down on the burger patties when they are cooking. (tip – try using another large pan or saucepan lid to cover burgers whilst cooking to add some heat into the meat (just do not squash the pattie).
As a rule, it usually takes 3-4 minutes cooking time on each side of the burger pattie to get a nice scorched exterior and moist inside, but it does comes down to personal preference on how you like your burger cooked.
Once cooked, rest the burger patties on a plate for a couple of minutes and then assemble your burger to order. Don’t forget to serve with your favorite side dishes – we recommend mac‘n’cheese or homemade french fries.
