Beef and Slow Roast Tomato Burgers

These homemade burgers are incredibly easy to make and taste really good cooked on the barbecue. Using good quality mince beef and slow roast tomatoes available from the Morrisons deli counter, these burgers went down a treat.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

450g mince beef
100g slow roast tomatoes (semi dried tomatoes)
Handful of fresh parsley (chopped)*
Handful of fresh basil (chopped)*
1 onion (grated)
1 teaspoon sea salt*
Black pepper*
4 wholemeal rolls


1. Finely chop the tomatoes and put in a large bowl.

2. Add the parsley, basil, onion and mince beef. Then season with salt and pepper.

3. Using your hands mix everything together.

4. Divide the mixture into 4 and then roll into balls. Flatten the balls and place on a plate. Put in the fridge until needed.

5. Cook on the barbecue to your liking and serve in the wholemeal rolls topped with salsa.

Total cost £5.80
Cost per serving £1.45

Homemade Salsa

This salsa is not hot but is packed full of tomato flavour, it tastes great with the burgers. If you prefer your salsa hot just leave in the pith and seeds of the chilli.

1/2 lime
Small bunch of coriander
2 spring onions
Extra virgin olive oil*
Salt and pepper*


1. Remove the seeds from the tomatoes and finely chop, place in a bowl.

2. Cut the chilli in half, remove the seeds and pith. Then, finely chop the chilli and add to the bowl.

3. Finely chop the coriander leaves and stalks, then add to the bowl.

4. Finely chop the spring onions and add to the bowl.

5. Season everything with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil and squeeze in the juice of the lime. Mix well.

2. Add the spinach and mix well.

*I have not included the cost of some ingredients such as olive oil, salt, pepper, fresh herbs and spices as I already had these items in my fridge or cupboard. The quantities of these items was minimal and therefore their use would not greatly impact on the overall price.

Whilst I prepared the food for our delicious barbecue, full credit for cooking it goes to my husband who did a great job cooking the meat perfectly. Having the barbecue on Monday was a great way to end the bank holiday because we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Nothing beats a good barbecue and now (hopefully) the warmer weather is on its way, I’m hoping we can enjoy lots more outdoor cooking.

I’ll post my Strawberry Brownie Ice Cream Sundae recipe very soon. My children absolutely loved it, so don’t miss it.

Until then.
