Cheeseburger recipe with homemade ketchup: Method

  1. Start by making the tomato ketchup: heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion with a pinch of salt and cook, stirring for 5 minutes or until tender. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Bring to the boil then simmer for around 40-60 minutes, stirring often until sauce thickens. Using a stick blender, blend sauce until smooth and adjust seasoning to taste. Pour into sterlised bottles and store in the fridge until needed.
  2. To make the burgers, place beef mince and onion in a large bowl. Season well with salt and pepper. Use your hands to squeeze and mix the beef and onion together. Once thoroughly combined, divide into four pieces and shape into burger patties.
  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over high heat and spray lightly with oil. Cook burger patties for 3-4 minutes, or until a nice crust has formed on the bottom of the patties. Flip patties, top with a slice of cheese, turn down heat to medium and cover pan with a lid. Cook for another 2-3 minutes or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
  4. Split the buns in half and spread mayonnaise on to the cut sides of each bun. Place the buns cut side down into the same frying pan you cooked the burger patties over a medium heat. Cook until buns are nicely toasted then transfer to serving plates.
  5. Top the bottom halves of the buns with lettuce leaves. Top with burger patties, a good serving of your homemade tomato ketchup, gherkin slices and the top half of the bun.
