Beef burger sliders
- 1 small onion
- 1 small carrot
- 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!
