Best Burger Recipe

This is certainly the best burger recipe ever. Based on the Jamie Oliver Insanity burger.

Best Homemade Burgers 

I used his brilliant idea of brushing the burgers with American mustard and Tabasco Chipolte sauce as they cooked. The result is amazing. So this isn't the actual Insanity burger recipe because I just took bits of it to make it really quick.

Put the mince in a bowl and season with a pinch of black pepper (no salt) and the egg yolk.

It's important not to add salt at this point because they will need to chill in the fridge for at least an hour. Adding salt will make the beef tough.

Mix together with your hands but don't over mix or the burgers will look over-processed.

Divide equally into half and, with wet hands, roll each piece into a ball, then press into flat patties roughly 12cm wide and about 2cm wider than your buns.

Place on an oiled plate, cover with cling film and chill in the fridge for at least an hour; 3 hours is even better. If you don't do this the burgers will fall apart when cooking.

When you're ready to cook, prepare the salad.

Get a large non-stick pan on high heat. Pat the burgers with oil and season them with salt and a little more pepper.

This recipe is simple and yet really tasty; which is down to the cooking technique of brushing a mixture of ½ a teaspoon of mustard and a dash of Tabasco smoky chipotle sauce.

Have you tried Tabasco Smoky Chipotle Sauce? It's amazing stuff, I love it! You can buy it in most supermarkets, I know Tesco sell it for sure.

Top each burger with a slice of your favourite cheese; we like Applewood smoky cheddar cheese.
