To make these burgers you will need a food processor and a non stick frying pan.

If you don’t have a food processor, how about investing in this hand blender? It is the same one we used to make these burgers as it has a food processor attachment. You can pick one up on Amazon here.

A decent sized non-stick frying pan is a great investment as it reduces the need for oil in your cooking. This one over at Amazon is a great starter pan for your kitchen!

How do I make this Melt-in-the-middle Bacon Cheese Burgers recipe?

Step 2

Add your lean beef mince (5% fat) and the salt, pepper, garlic powder, mustard powder, Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 beef stock cube, soy sauce and the egg. Give it a whizz until all the ingredients are well mixed.

Step 3

Grab a big handful of the mixture and begin to shape it around a babybel cheese. Make sure there are no cracks or gaps, you don’t want all that lovely cheese to escape!

Step 4

Heat a large non-stick frying pan and spray liberally with low calorie cooking spray. Add your burgers and cook gently – you want them to be cooked through without being burnt on the outside. Alternatively crack out the BBQ on and get grilling!

Step 5

Remove the visible fat from the bacon and grill.

Step 6

Assemble your burger in a 60g wholemeal roll and serve!
