Cheese Hamburgers


  • lb (550 g) beef, finely chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 oz (50 g) Gruyere cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix very thoroughly and roll into a ball. Divide the ball into four smaller balls of equal size and with the palm of your hand, flatten them to the desired thickness.

Cook the hamburgers over a very hot fire for 10 minutes, turning them frequently. And instead of chips, make a crispy salad of frisée (curly endive) and radicchio with garlic-flavoured croûtons.
