500g Quality Mark beef mince
To shorten the cooking time, flatten patties out and make a small well in the middle of each (this also prevents the meat from forming a dome as it cooks) so they are not too dense.
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
4 finely chopped spring onions
2 crushed garlic cloves
1 lightly beaten egg
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
3 tbsp finely chopped parsley
A pinch of chilli flakes
1 cup yoghurt
2 tbsp shredded fresh mint
4 pita bread
8 handfuls lettuce
Use your choice of salad greens which could include finely shredded spinach or baby spinach leaves. Shredded cos lettuce adds a great crunch.
100g crumbled blue vein cheese
To Make Patties
Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
Season well and shape into 4 large patties.
Heat a dash of oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat (or heat a barbecue plate until hot) and place the patties on.
Cook for 16-18 minutes, turning and cooking the sides as well until they are cooked through.
