Burger Burger

America is known for it's burgers so it may be completely unorthodox that I share a burger recipe from a non-American Celebrity Chef. I do so only because it is absolutely amazing! We all know how well Jamie Oliver can cook so below is my take on his Insanity Burger. I will paste the link to his traditional version underneath so you can follow that if you prefer. Here goes......this recipe serves 4 people (or 2 if you want a giant burger)


  • 1 pound organic, grass-fed ground beef 
  • 1 red onion
  • White wine vinegar
  • Gherkins
  • Brioche burger buns 
  • American or Dijon mustard 
  • Chipotle hot sauce (I like Siete brand) 
  • Aged cheddar (or your burger preference) 
  • Organic ketchup 

Burger sauce:

  • Organic romaine or iceberg lettuce
  • 2 heaped tablespoons organic, free-range mayo
  • 1 heaped tablespoon organic ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon Siete Chipotle sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


  • Make the burger sauce by mixing all above ingredients together.
  • Season beef with salt & pepper and make into patties. Drizzle over a little olive oil, cover and put in fridge. 
  • Finely slice red onion, then dress in a bowl with a splash of white wine vinegar and a pinch of sea salt.
  • Slice gherkins and cheese and halve the buns.
  • Finely chop the lettuce and mix with the the burger sauce. 
  • Cook your burgers on the grill. When the burgers are nearly ready brush each side with a little mustard and chipotle and cook for another minute or 2 on each side. Before removing from grill add cheese to the top of each pattie so it can start to melt while you toast your burger buns. 
  • Put the burger together by putting burger sauce lettuce mix on the bottom followed by pattie/cheese, gherkin and pickled onion. You can add a little more ketchup and mustard to the top bun if you like more sauce. 

For the non-meat eaters - I love this recipe with halibut instead. Note: I suggest drying off halibut with a paper towel then dust with flour and the seasoning you would like (blackened seasoning is a great option). if the halibut is too damp the burger bun with get super soggy.
