Beef hamburgers with cheddar, onions and courgettes

Beef hamburgers with cheddar, onions and courgettes


A revisited version of the classic cheeseburger... flavoured with grilled zucchini!


500 g minced beef
4 slices cheddar
2 red onions
2 courgettes
4 Hamburger
1 clove of garlic
1 tomato
tartar or Béarnaise sauce (optional)
4 lettuce leaves
1 handful parsley
a little bit of extra virgin olive oil
salt to taste


  • Peel and finely chop the garlic and add to the minced beef with a generous pinch of salt. Mix thoroughly in a bowl then shape into 4 even burger patties.
  • Peel the onions and cut them into slices. Top and tail the courgettes and cut them into thin slices.
  • Pre-heat a ridged, cast-iron griddle pan. Split the Hamburger rolls in half and toast the cut sides on the griddle.
  • Grill the courgette slices briefly on each side, then season them with a drizzle of oil and a pinch each of salt and chopped parsley.
  • Cook the hamburger patties on the griddle, turning them over after about 2 minutes.

Assemble the hamburger as follows:

  • Arrange the lettuce and onion on the lower half of each roll, then carefully place the burger, tomato and courgettes on top.
  • Finish with a slice of cheddar and the top of the roll. Serve hot.
  • Chef’s suggestion: for a more intense flavour, use 300g beef and 200g lamb.
