Can you whip up the perfect burger in just five minutes?

Makes: 1

Takes: 5 mins


250g beef mince

50g gherkins, sliced

½ gem lettuce

1 tbsp American mustard

2 tbsp mayonnaise

1 tbsp ketchup

1 burger bun, sliced

4 American-style cheese slices


Preheat the grill/broiler to high. Place a large frying pan over a high heat.

Form the beef mince into 2 very thin burger-shaped patties, and then place them into the large

frying pan, smashing them down as you go. Cook for 45 seconds and then flip the patties – repeat on the 2nd side until well browned all over.

Finely chop the gherkins and shred the lettuce.

Place the mustard, mayonnaise, ketchup, gherkins, and lettuce into a medium mixing bowl and mix until well combined.

Toast the burger buns under the grill for 1 minute until golden brown.

Once the burger patties are coloured on both sides, season lightly with salt and pepper. Add 2 slices of cheese to each. Add 1 tbsp of water to the pan and cover with a lid to steam and melt the cheese for 20 seconds.

Layer the burger sauce and burger patties onto the burger bun base and top with the bun lid.

Editor's Rating & Review

First and foremost a moisturizer, this lightweight formula hydrates combination skin amazingly well and offers sheer coverage. Seven versatile shades blend well with most skin tones. Applying over primer helps smooth and extend its already long wear. One tube yields a fair amount, though it won't last long with daily use. SPF 20, though a big bonus, could be higher. Those wanting medium- to full-coverage may be disappointed.
