Brie and Bacon Burgers

 Homemade, nice fat juicy burgers topped with bacon and Brie.
Ideal for the nice BBQ weather we've been having!

To make 2 nice fat burgers you will need:
250g lean beef mince
1 large onion
3 fat cloves of garlic
small handful of flat leaved parsley - finely chopped
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
a pinch of sea salt
2 good pinches of freshly ground black pepper
1 egg yolk - lightly beaten
a glug of olive oil for frying

You will also need:
4 rashers of streaky bacon - fried till nice and crisp
a few slices of Brie

How to do it:
Whiz the onion and garlic in a food processor - till finely chopped and put into a mixing bowl.
Add the beef mince to the bowl and season with cayenne, salt and pepper along with the parsley and the egg yolk.
Mix well with a fork, but don't over mix it or the burgers will have no texture to them - they will become over processed and horrid.
 Cover a flat tray with greaseproof paper, put the cooking rings (mine are 9cm by 3cm) on it and fill each one evenly with the meat mixture.
Press down with a spoon till they look nice.  Now cover with cling film and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes so they hold their shape.
Remove them from the fridge 10 minutes before you want to cook them.  Heat a glug of olive oil in a nice big frying pan. 
Pan-fry allowing about 4 minutes on each side for medium burgers.  When they're nicely done, serve the burgers in toasted burger buns topped with slices of Brie and a couple of slices of bacon and of course whatever else you fancy.
