BBQ Burgers (makes 2 or 4 burgers)
  • 400 g Good quality beef mince
  • 1 shallot
  • 3 tablespoon Stoke BBQ sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 200 g Taleggio cheese
  • 2 or 4 Focaccia rolls
  • salad leaves and sliced cucumber if desired
  1. Place the mince in a medium sized mixing bowl, add the shallots and mix well
  2. Add the BBQ sauce and using your hands mix the sauce through the meat, squeezing the meat through your hands
  3. Form into patties, pressing the meat together well, season both sides and brush with oil
  4. Place in a griddle or frying pan over a moderate heat, for 10 minutes before flipping over. If you are forming the mixture into 2 burgers rather than 4, they will take 15 minutes each side. There's sugar in the BBQ sauce which will burn if the heat is too high
  5. Place 2 slices of taleggio cheese on the cooked side of each burger whilst the underside cooks for a further 10 minutes.
  6. Cut the focaccia rolls in half and toast the bottom half. Place the top half cut side down in the pan after the burgers have been removed for about 5 minutes
  7. Place the salad and cucumber on the bottom layer, top with the burger a little of the salsa, recipe below and place the top of the focaccia roll on top. Serve with fries or salad.
