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.

Pancakes with Strawberries and More – Father’s Day Recipes

Makes 18 Pancakes


2 cups plain flour

3 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

¼ cup sugar

1 egg

2 cups milk

¼ cup butter melted (for serving) – You’ll need extra for cooking

Punnet of strawberries

Maple Syrup


Whisk the egg and milk together. Combine all your dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix. Create a well in the centre of the dry ingredients to pour your milk mixture into. Beat together until all ingredients are combined and the batter is almost smooth (do not over mix).

Pour batter onto preheated greased frypan (electric or on stove). Use medium heat. You can use a 1/4 cup measure of batter for each pancake. You’ll know the pancake is ready to turn when bubbles break on the surface.

Once the pancakes are cooked. Serve hot with butter, maple syrup and strawberries.

Matthew’s Tip

Other toppings can be lemon juice and sugar or cinnamon sugar (tastes like a cinnamon donut).
