1

Burgers:

Place chosen set of ingredients into a large bowl, mix thoroughly with mince. Divide mixture into 4 or 6, and shape into burgers. Cover and place in a fridge for 30 mins.

Place on preheated BBQ and cook for the recommended total cooking time (see below), turning once.

  • Thin Burgers 1-2cm (½-¾”) – 8-12 minutes
  • Thick Burgers 3cm (1¼”) – 10-12 minutes

Sausages:
For the chance to taste a variety of sausages, skewer 4 different varieties on to two or three skewers.

Once cooked, cut down middle for a four sausage kebab. NB: If using wooden skewers ensure they have been pre-soaked to prevent burning.

Recommended total cooking time on a preheated BBQ:

  • Chipolatas – 8-10 minutes
  • Chunky Sausages – 10-12 minutes
3

Ensure both burgers and sausages are thoroughly cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 700C+ or when all juices run clear.

To cook sausages a little quicker, pre-cook in microwave for 1 minute and then finish off on the BBQ for that ‘just BBQ’d’ look and flavour.
