  • 1 small onion

  • 250g lean beef mince
  • 1 level tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 2 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 level tsp Dijon mustard
  • Black pepper
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 4cm piece cucumber
  • 8 small wholemeal rolls
  • 8 little gem lettuce leaves
  • Turn on the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Place the onion on the chopping board, cut it in half, then peel.

  • Coarsely chop the onion. Use a fork to hold each half in place on the chopping board. Slice it, then cut across the slices to chop into smaller pieces. Put in the bowl.

  • Peel the carrot and then cut off the tip.

  • Grate the carrot from the pointed end down until you just have the stem end left. Add the grated carrot to the onion.

  • Add the beef mince, herbs, ketchup, Worcestershire Sauce and mustard to the bowl. Season with 3 grinds of black pepper.

  • Mix gently with your hands until it's just evenly mixed.

  • Using your hands, shape the mix into 8 burgers and put on a non-stick baking tray. Wash your hands. Put into the oven and cook for 15 minutes.

  • While the burgers are cooking, slice the tomatoes and the cucumber with the knife. Take the burgers out of the oven – making sure you use the oven gloves.

  • Cut the rolls in half and fill with the burgers, tomato, cucumber and a lettuce leaf. Now your mini sliders are ready to eat!
