For 4 big patties (120-130g/each)

500g mince beef

1 egg

50 ml milk

½ cup breadcrumbs

1 large onion

2 garlic cloves

6 tbsp olive oil






For the composition

4 sesame buns

2 medium tomatoes

4 cheddar cheese slices (approx 20-30g each)

1 onion

Pickles (optional)




  1. Bring a pan on medium-high heat and add 2 tbsp of olive oil.
  2. Chop the onion and garlic cloves and place them into the pan until caramelized. Put the pan aside.
  3. Into a large bowl, transfer the caramelized mix, add the breadcrumbs, 4 tbsp olive oil, milk and paprika and beat the mixture with a hand blender until even.
  4. Add the meat, egg, salt, pepper, oregano and parsley into the large bowl and, wearing gloves, mix all the ingredients together with your hands.
  5. Let the bowl for at least 1 h into the fridge to bind the mixture together.
  6. Bake the patties at 180 degrees (350 F) in a fan oven for 30 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, cut the second onion into thin slices and caramelize them as well in the same pan you used before. Remove from the pan into a small bowl.
  8. Bring the buns for a couple of seconds on each side and remove into plates them as well. Cut the tomatoes into thin slices.
  9. When the patties are ready, fry both sides of them for 30-60” each side. Just before you remove them from the pan, add a cheddar slice on each one of them and leave for 10”.
  10. Place patties on the bottom buns, add the tomato slices, the patties, and top them with ketchup, mustard, pickles, caramelized onions and the top bun. Serve while hot.
