We all love meat in this house, especially the hubby and the kids. Most of all we all love a good burger, and don’t be scared off by the idea that these are homemade. Homemade burgers are so easy to make and once you’ve made your own you won’t go back to shop ready-made ones again. 

Meat, especially beef and lamb provide many of the essential vitamins and minerals we need including B6, B12 amongst others. They are naturally rich in protein and are a good source of iron which can help reduce fatigue and tiredness (and as busy parents, we could all do with reducing THOSE!)

So considering how much I love goats cheese we decided on this amazing stuffed goats cheese burger. This stuffed goats cheese burger is just that little bit more special than your everyday burger. Goats cheese can be a little sharp on its own so we added a spoonful of caramelised red onions which give a kick of sweetness to the burger, and a homemade mustard mayo sandwiched between a tasty brioche bun and you’re in burger heaven!

They taste absolutely amazing, and even the kids loved them! Plus, they only take 30 minutes to prepare and make.

Instructions
Caramelised onions
  1. Slice red onion. Keep uniform size in slices otherwise they will cook unevenly and get some undercooked and some burnt
  2. Place butter and a little oil in pan. Add the onions and the salt and cook on a medium-low heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally
  3. Add the brown sugar and stir in. Cook for about another 5 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent any burning
  4. Remove from the heat and set aside
Burgers
  1. While the caramelises onions are cooking, combine all the ingredients (except the goats cheese) in a bowl and mix together
  2. Using a burger press (or just your hands if you don't have one), make 8 burger patties
  3. Divide the goats cheese into 4 equal pieces and place them in the middle of 4 of the burger patties
  4. Place the remaining patties on top of them and firmly press down around the edges to seal them
  5. Heat a frying or griddle pan to medium hot heat
  6. Brush both sides of the burger with oil and cook for 4-5 minutes each side or until browned and cooked through
  7. When cooking the second side, place the cheddar cheese on top of the burgers with about 1-2 minutes of cooking time left to allow it to melt
Finishing off
  1. Mix the Dijon mustard and the mayonnaise in a bowl to make the mustard mayo
  2. Spread the mustard mayo on the bottom of the burger buns. Place the burger on top followed by the lettuce and then the caramelised onions
  3. Serve up and enjoy with your favourite fries
