Divide the beef mince into four then start squishing it between your fingers (add a little egg if you are using it). Keep doing so until it is no longer falling apart in your hands.
Once this is done push the onion or chives and cheese into the centre of the burger, making sure the meat is sealed all around so that no cheese will leak out. Gently rub in salt and pepper if you want. Repeat for the other burgers.
Place your burgers under the grill or in a frying pan and cook until no longer pink in the centre for well done and the cheese has melted; or for a total of about 6 minutes for medium-rare, 8 minutes for medium flipping the burgers once throughout cooking.
Remove the burgers from the grill or frying pan and serve on burger buns with toppings of your choice.
I like to use lean mince so there is as little fat as possible in the burgers, and I always think it's good to know what exactly you are eating.
