Heavenly Burgers – Father’s Day Recipes

Makes 4 Burgers

Burger Patty Ingredients

500g minced beef

salt and pepper (to season)

1 brown onion finely chopped

2 x garlic cloves, minced

3/4 cup of breadcrumbs

1 egg (lightly whisked)

1 tbsp Italian Herbs

2 tbsp BBQ sauce

Other Ingredients

2 tbsp olive oil

Cheddar cheese, thinly sliced

4 hamburger buns, halved


Tomatoes, sliced

Spanish onions, sliced

Sliced Pickles



Slightly brown the onion and garlic in a medium pan with some oil. Add to the other burger patty ingredients in a bowl. Combine. Divide the mix into four equal portions. Create patties that are about 10 cm wide and 1.5 cm thick. Rest the patties for 30 minutes on a lined tray covered in plastic wrap in the fridge for 30 minutes before cooking.

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook the patties for about 4 minutes each side or until they are browned and cooked through. Place cheese on top of the cooked side of the patty as you’re waiting for the other side to cook to melt the cheese.

Toast the inside of the hamburger buns under the oven grill for 1 minute or until golden and serve with whatever salad and condiments you like.

Haloumi Burgers – Next-Level Campfire Cooking

Camping is a favourite family tradition in North Queensland. No matter the season up here, it’s perfect weather to gather up the tent or clean the caravan, relocate all the camping gear and prepare for days of relaxation and fun in the great outdoors. Sometimes, what can make or break a camping trip is the food! We know how hard it can be to prepare and cook good meals when camping (we’ve been there), and as much as we love the old favourites, we also love variety. So, check out the easy recipe below and try haloumi burgers with veggies in place of the ‘usual’ meat burgers. 

Haloumi Burgers

Veggie haloumi burgers are a unique, great meal for a family lunch or dinner while camping. They’ll taste like they’re hard to make but we promise they’re not! Simply heat up a barbeque or camping stove to cook the haloumi slices for a few minutes, then build your burger and enjoy.


250g haloumi cheese

Oil spray

4 burger buns

1 large tomato, sliced

1 large lettuce leaf – shred into equal pieces

Sauce of your choice, such as mayo or sweet chilli sauce

Additional. Optional ingredients:

Cucumber slices

Grated carrot


Heat up a camping barbeque or stove. Cut the haloumi into 8 pieces, lightly spray with cooking spray, and fry for a couple of minutes on each side. Cook it for longer if you want it to be firmer.

You can also toast each bun for a couple of minutes, but be careful that they don’t burn.

Slice open each bun and put all of the ingredients into them (evenly), placing each ingredient on top of each other and finishing it off with the top of the bun.

If you know the family won’t be full after just once burger, double the ingredients and have multiple burgers each. Don’t be afraid to serve them with whatever else you want – there are no meal rules when camping!
