This is a real treat – cook in the oven or on the barbeque.

Ingredients (makes 6):

  • 500g beef mince 5% fat
  • an egg
  • a tsp mixed herbs
  • a heaped tsp wholegrain mustard
  • an onion, blitzed in food processor
  • salt and pepper


  1. Combine all the ingredients and knead together with hands.
  2. Divide the mixture into six and mould six burgers.
  3. Place on a wired tray above an oven tray and cook on 180C for  about 40 mins, turning once.  (Some fat will come out of the burgers during the cooking process so you’ll need the oven tray to catch this.)

These can be served on a Schar gluten-free roll or brown sandwich thin with salad, gherkins and 2 tsps Aldi lighter than light mayonnaise.  (Add 1/2 tbsp ketchup for 0 points and/or a low fat cheese slice for 1 point per person.)

Pictured here with paprika sweet potato fries.  Just spray fries with Frylight and sprinkle with paprika – cook in the oven on 180C for about 40 mins.

  1. HI I add Harissa paste to my mince for a bit of a different flavour or mustard powder and grated garlic. Love this website xx

    1. Hi, it’s great to hear you’re enjoying the website. Thank you for the idea of other flavours – I’ll try them out when I next make burgers. Hope you have a lovely rest of the weekend, Helen xxx

  2. I find grating an apple and a carrot in with the mince before you squish it together gives the burgers a less dense texture. And kids don’t realise they’re being healthy!
