Unlike other burgers, this one probably needs cutlery!

Preparation: 15 mins 
Cooking: 20 mins

Ingredients to serve 6-8

500g lamb mince

2 tbsp rapeseed or olive oil

1 onion, chopped

1 garlic clove, crushed

1 small green pepper, deseeded and finely diced

350ml passata

4 tbsp tomato ketchup (normal or spicy)

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1 tbsp brown sugar (optional)

1 tsp English mustard

Salt and pepper

Hot chilli sauce, optional

8 small burger rolls (or 6 large ones), sliced

6-8 Cheddar cheese slices

  • Heat the oil in a large pan and add the mince onion, garlic and pepper. Fry over a high heat until brown, breaking up the mixture with a wooden spoon.
  • After browning well, add the passata, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, mustard, and 100ml of water. Stir and leave to simmer for 20 minutes over a gentle heat. Add the seasoning and chilli sauce, if using.
  • Warm the rolls in the oven or toaster. Pile lamb mixture onto each roll base, top with a slice of cheese and finish with the roll lid.
  • Serve with potato wedges and a crisp green salad.
