The ultimate burger is a very subjective thing, but I reckon this one is hard to go past. A succulent beef patty draped with smoky melted cheese, topped with American mustard, gherkins, and maple syrup caramelised onions all on a bed of smoky barbecue Texan slaw. It’s seriously good.

This is a classic burger recipe that requires zero fuss. We have added Dijon mustard and chilli flakes to give these patties a slight kick and paired it with our homemade caramelised onions.
