About this recipe: Love the quarter pounder from the well known burger place? My version is much leaner by comparison and tastes great.

Serves: 2 

  • 200g lean steak mince
  • 1 onion, minced
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 sesame seed buns
  • 4 cheese singles
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons American mustard
  • 1 small handful dill pickles

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. In bowl combine the mince, 1/2 the onion, salt and pepper. Mix well with your hands. Press the mixture onto a chopping board and using an egg ring or large scone cutter, cut out 2 burgers.
  2. Heat a frypan with a little oil and pan fry the burgers until cooked. While this is happening, slice the burger buns then toast lightly under a grill.
  3. On the base bun spread 1/2 tablespoon each of ketchup and mustard. Repeat with the top bun. When burgers are cooked - place a slice of cheese on the base, top with a burger and then another slice of cheese. Add the pickles and remaining onions. Top with the burger lid.
  4. That's it. Quick, easy and tasty. Best of all - much fewer calories.

note : you are right there is no surprise as it is supposed to be homemade version - 23 Nov 2012


Argh...you never put the condiments on the bun; directly on the hamburger. If the skillet is hot enough, you don't need oil. When the burger is almost done, you put a slice of cheese on top, put the lid on for 2 minutes, then remove burger and melted cheese. - 07 Mar 2013
