Imagine tucking into a beef burger with an oozy cheese centre… We’ve got you covered with these next level homemade burgers


Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Red onion

1 small, finely diced

Extra lean beef mince (5% fat), raw

500 g

Oregano, Dried

½ tablespoon(s), level

Light Mozzarella

1 individual, quartered

Sun Dried Tomatoes in Oil

50 g, drained and chopped

Ciabatta Bread

160 g, 2 x 80g rolls

Salad leaves

1 portion(s)


1 large, thickly sliced

Red onion

½ small, thinly sliced


  1. Mist a small pan with cooking spray and fry the onion over a medium heat for 8-10 minutes until softened, then set aside to cool. Tip into a bowl and add the mince and oregano. Season well and mix to combine.
  2. Divide the mixture into 4 patties, then flatten each of these out slightly. Place a quarter piece of mozzarella in the centre of each, scatter over the sundried tomatoes, then form the mince mixture carefully around the cheese to encase it fully in a burger shape.
  3. Mist the patties all over with cooking spray then cook on a medium-hot barbecue plate (or in a nonstick frying pan set over a medium-high heat) for 6-8 minutes on each side until just cooked through.
  4. To serve, split and toast the ciabatta, then top each half with the melt-in-the-middle burgers, salad leaves, tomato and onion. Serve with extra salad.
