Everyone has their favourite burger, so it’s important to have plenty of toppings available for everyone to make their own combination. These two recipes give you solutions for delicious, flavoursome patties. Use top-quality ingredients, flavour well and grill on a very hot barbecue or in a hot pan for best results. We served these on split white burger buns, ciabatta rolls and pita bread. But the choice is yours.
