Chilli Beef Burgers with Maple Bacon and Coleslaw Recipe

Serves 4


4 cheese slices

4 soft bread rolls

1 dill pickle, thinly sliced

ketchup and American mustard, to serve

French fries, to serve

Beef Patties

500g minced beef

1 cup stale breadcrumbs 

1 egg, lightly whisked

1 tbsp chilli sauce

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce


¼ savoy cabbage, finely shredded

1 carrot, peeled, coarsely grated

½ red onion, thinly sliced

¼ cup whole egg mayonnaise

Maple bacon

4 bacon rashers

2 tbsp maple syrup


To make beef patties, combine minced beef, breadcrumbs, egg, chilli sauce and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl. Use your hands to combine. Divide into 4 even portions. Shape each portion into a 12cm-diameter patty. Place on a plate in the fridge for 30 minutes to rest.

To make coleslaw, combine cabbage, carrot, onion and mayonnaise in a medium bowl. Season to taste.

To make maple bacon, heat a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Add bacon and cook, turning, for 2-3 minutes. Drizzle with maple syrup and cook, turning, for 2 minutes or until bacon caramelises. Set aside.

Cook beef patties in frying pan for 4 minutes each side or until golden brown and cooked through. Top with a cheese slice and keep on low heat for 2 minutes or until cheese melts on the top of the patty. Remove from heat.

Place beef patties on the base of each bread roll. Top with bacon and pickle. Top with ketchup and mustard. 

Serve immediately with coleslaw and French fries.
