• 500g lean steak mince
  • 100g lean streaky bacon, very finely chopped
  • 75g stilton, crumbled
  • ½ red onion
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ tsp celery salt
  • a pinch chilli flakes


  • 4 brioche burger buns, toasted
  • mayonnaise or curly lettuce or sliced tomatoes or sliced gherkins or red onion slices or American mustard


  • STEP 1

    Put the mince, bacon and cheese in a bowl. Grate the onion on the coarse side of a box grater. Add the grated onion to the mince along with a splash of Worcestershire sauce, the celery salt, and chilli flakes.

  • STEP 2

    Mix everything with your hands and divide into 6 equal portions. Flatten each portion into a thin patty, making a slight dip in the middle (this will stop them doming as the meat cooks). Heat a non-stick frying pan on a high heat. Fry the patties for 3-4 minutes on each side until cooked through.

  • STEP 3

    Put some mayo on each bun base. Add lettuce and a couple of slices of tomato. Add a burger then finish with gherkins, red onions and mustard and the bun top.
