hamburger feature


I just love a good old hamburger and it’s usually my first choice when dining out. I’m always on the search for that perfect burger! Over the years I’ve perfected making homemade burger patties. Today I’m sharing a variation on my recipe with you guys.

This recipe is specially for those cheese lovers, you can substitute the Gouda cheese for cheddar of mozzarella.

Serving Suggestion

I love topping my bun with cream cheese, peppadews, gherkins, salad leaves and sauce when making these patties but you can add whatever you love.

This recipe can easily be doubled up for a burger party where all your guests can just bring something you can top the burger with. Bring & Burger!

Author Lizna


  • 250 ml Bread Crumbs I make mine with a handblender
  • 5 ml Thyme Fresh works best
  • 5 ml Italian Mixed Herbs
  • 5 ml Parsley
  • 5 ml Coriander Grounded
  • Salt & Pepper To taste
  • 1 large Egg
  • 150 g Gouda Cheese Cut into small cubes
  • 500 g Ground Beef
  • Oil for Frying


  • Mix the bread crumbs with all the herbs, spice, salt and pepper. I like using the stick blender for this it really helps to bring out the flavours from the fresh herbs.
  • Next mix in the egg, cheese and ground beef.
  • I separate the mixture into 6 equal parts and then form my patties. Let them sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes, you can skip this step but they keep their shape better if chilled.
  • Fry the patties in some oil until browned on both sides!


I hope you really enjoy this recipe!

    If you’re looking to try a good burger and you like some heat…. the new Mugg & Bean one is DELICIOUS! The stuffed popper burger.

    This looks good as well…cheese and burger, you can never go wrong.
