Ultimate Kiwiburger

Ultimate Kiwiburger



  • 600 g – 800 g premium beef mince
  • 1 onion, very finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 free-range egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 slice wholemeal toast bread, torn into small pieces, soaked in 2 tablespoons milk
  • ½ cup feta, crumbled
  • ½ cup mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp rosemary leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • ½ teaspoon salt

To serve

  • 5-6 burger buns, halved (ciabatta buns are good)
  • Tomato relish or sauce
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Tinned beetroot
  • 1 red onion, very finely sliced
  • Fried eggs
  • Ripe tomatoes, sliced
  • ¾ cup aioli or mayonnaise, mixed with ½ cup finely chopped basil and a squeeze of lemon juice



  1. Preheat the oven grill to high.
  2. Place all the patty ingredients in a bowl, add pepper and mix it all up using your clean hands. Shape into 4-6 patties, cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  3. Preheat a BBQ or frying pan to medium heat. Brush the patties with a little oil and cook for a few minutes until crunchy and brown on one side. Turn the patties over, reduce the heat to medium low and cook for another 8-10 minutes until cooked through.
  4. Before serving, halve the buns, spread with butter and pop under the grill to get a very slight crunch (you can add some sliced cheese to make them extra delicious if you like!)

To serve

Everyone can assemble their own burgers with the fillings – and don’t forget to give the burger a good press down with your palm before you attempt to eat it.
