Homemade Burgers

Special cheeseburgers: there's melted cheddar hidden in each burger, the subtile taste is brought out with mango chutney.

450 g lean minced beef
2 pcs bread, without crust
1 egg
4 spring onion, roughly chopped
1 pc garlic, sliced thinly
1 tbsp mango chutney
2 tsp mixed dried herbs
50 g cheddar
salt & freshly milled black pepper
4 burger buns, to serve

1. Put meat, bread, egg, spring onion and garlic in a food processor. Add a bit of salt and pepper and process until everything is equally mixed.
2. Divide the burger mix into four equal portions and form round patties with wet hands (so the meat won't stick).
3. Slice the cheese into four pieces and put one into the middle of each patty. Knead the meat around the cheese until it forms a burger. Put them 30 minutes in the refrigerator and heat up the grill beforehand.
4. Grill the burgers for 5-8 minutes on each side and fill the buns with them. Serve directly with your favorite garnish.
