Making your own burgers is very easy - and if you use disposable plastic gloves you wont even get your hands dirty.

You can make beef, lamb, pork or chicken burgers. This How to Make Burgers recipe is for beef burgers and will serve around 4 people. Here goes:-

How to Make Burgers - Ingredients

500 g / 1 lb good quality minced beef
Couple of handfuls of fresh bread crumbs (great way to use up unwanted crusts)
One Egg
2 Tablespoons Dijon or Coarse Grain Mustard
Crushed garlic clove (optional)
Fresh burger rolls to serve
How to Make Burgers - Method

Put on disposable plastic gloves (messy business otherwise)
Put all ingredients into a bowl and mix together thoroughly, using your hands
Using your hands again, mold mixture into burger shapes
Cook on a BBQ, under the grill, in the oven or in a frying pan
Serving Suggestions

I like to serve these burgers at the table with all the trimmings and let people help themselves. Try some of the following suggestions:-

Thinly Sliced tomato and/or cucumber
Lettuce
Sliced cheese - tasty cheese works well
Avocado - sliced or mashed
Pineapple rings - the tinned type are perfect (drained of juice)
Sliced cooked beetroot - again, from a tin is quick and easy
Mustard and/or sauces
Mayonnaise
Pickle
Variations

As I mentioned earlier, you can make beef, lamb, chicken or pork burgers. Just make sure you use good quality minced meat. Your burgers will only ever be as good as the meat you use.

Add some finely chopped chili for a spicier version
Sweet chili is also nice, for a spicy but not too hot version
Use hot English mustard - if you like the heat
If you have time (and can avoid the tears) add a grated onion
So, there you have it. How to Make Burgers - in Ten Minutes.
