Fast Friday!

It’s Friday and we’re all looking for something quick and easy for dinner that will keep everyone happy.  Last Friday night we tried a recipe for Best Burgers, everyone made their own and we served home-made chips on the side.  They were Sooooo filling!  Unfortunately, the aroma of these burgers was so amazing that we didn’t think to stop and take a photo before digging in, but you get the idea.  I didn’t think the original recipe would pack enough punch, so I upped the Dijon Mustard from 1tsp to 1 Tbl and I’m really glad I did because this recipe is a keeper. Oh, and don’t leave out the nutmeg.  I thought it was a weird addition, and I’m not a nutmeg fan, but I added it in anyway and the burgers were great, so I’m going to keep nutmeg in my recipe, just in case it’s that secret ingredient that makes them so amazing.

Best Burgers


1kg Beef Mince

1 Onion, finely chopped

1/2 tsp Dried Chilli Flakes

1 Egg

1/2 Cup Fresh White breadcrumbs (if you don’t have a food processor, use your grater, I did)

1 Tbl Dijon Mustard

3 Tbl Grated Parmesan Cheese

Pinch of  Nutmeg

2 Tbl Olive Oil

Salad of choice

Bread Rolls


Toss your mince, onion, chilli flakes, egg, breadcrumbs, mustard, parmesan and nutmeg into a large mixing bowl and use your hands to thoroughly combine.

Shape your mixture into burger patties. I used an egg ring (pictured) to get just the right sized patty.

Refrigerate until needed.

Heat oil in your frying pan, or heat the grill of your bbq and cook your patties until they are cooked right through.

Then grab your bread roll and a burger patty, and add any toppings you like to create your burger, just the way you want it!

Have A Great Friday!

About Rebekah

Hi, I'm Rebekah, a happily married mum of six who also happens to be a cooking and baking addict and new accidental blogger. I live in Rural Sout-East Queensland, about an hour and a half from Brisbane . I have a 16 year old son who is itching to learn to drive, a 9 year old daughter with Type 1 Diabetes who loves to play her violin and dance her way from one end of the house to the other, 7 year old twins, a son who loves cars, trucks and bike riding with his dad and his twin sister who loves to paint and draw her life and hang it on mummy's fridge. Then there is Little Miss 5, the happiest child I have ever met, very independent, and she dances and sings everywhere she goes, followed closely by her almost 3 year old sister who thinks she is the boss of everything and is a mixture of all of her siblings put together. To say life can be exhausting is an understatement, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Plate4Eight came about through my need to get organized in the kitchen. I no longer have time to go searching through cookbooks and folders for "that recipe we liked last week", and the more organized I am, the more time I have to spend with my family and experiment in the kitchen, which is my form of relaxation. So, if you're looking for something to have for dinner tonight, or just want to try something new, have a look around. I hope you find something you like.
