Hamburger with bacon and egg

True comfort food and a big plate of it at that. Ideal for a treat-myself-moment in the middle of the week. As an added bonus there is cheese inside the burger,because you’ve deserved it!
If you’re not a big eater, use 50gr less minced meat or halve the portion of garlic potatoes served with this.

Start by making the garlic potatoes, so you can make the burger and cole slaw while the potatoes are in the oven.

Ingredients:

  • 150 gr minced meat
  • 1 onion
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of ground cumin
  • pinch of paprika
  • 20 gr grated cheese
  • 1 tsp breadcrumbs
  • salt / pepper
  • 1.5 tsp oil
  • 2 tranches streaky bacon

Serves 1 as part of the Budget Challenge

Recipe:

Chop 1/4th of the onion finely. Gently break the egg in a bowl.
Combine the chopped onion, 1 teaspoon eggwhite, cumin, paprika, cheese and breadcrumbs with the minced meat and add salt and pepper to taste. Form a burger patty of approximately 12cm wide and 1cm high. When it bakes the diameter will shrink but it will become higher.

Heat half a teaspoon of oil in a small frying pan. Slice the remaining onion and bake on a low flame until starting to caramelise.
Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan. Bake the burger brown in 2.5 minutes, then flip and bake another 2.5 minutes. When flipping, push the burger to one side of the pan and after a minute, pour the egg in another corner. Bake until the white has set but the yolk is still firm, and meanwhile bake the bacon until crisp.
