I do love a Bank Holiday weekend, time to make tasty things on the BBQ! We cooked these Syn Free Stuffed Burgers on our Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ.

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

The Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ is pretty special, in that it runs on gas and on charcoal. So you can get that lovely smokey flavour, without any of the effort that usually goes into starting a charcoal BBQ.

The Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ makes cooking these Syn Free Stuffed Burgers an absolute dream! All you do is load up the tray of the BBQ with charcoal, light the BBQ with the gas, then 15 minutes later you’re ready to go.

The secret to making these Syn Free Stuffed Burgers!

Making these Syn Free Stuffed Burgers is pretty easy too, especially when you use one of these burger presses. They’re far superior to some of the cheap plastic burger presses you see knocking about and much safer to use too!

 

How do I make these Syn Free Stuffed Burgers?

Scroll down to the bottom of this post for full ingredients list and instructions.

These are Syn free when using a quarter of your HEA per burger.

Step 1

Cut the bacon medallions into small pieces and finely dice the whole onion. Mist a pan with some Frylight, then cook the bacon and half of the onions until they are cooked through and lightly browned. Set aside to cool.

Mix the minced beef, remaining onions, garlic, salt pepper, hot sauce and egg together until it’s all combined thoroughly.

Split the burger mix into 4 equal balls, then put one ball into the burger press.

Replace the lid and press down firmly – you should now have a thin burger in the press.

Step 6

Spray both sides of the burger with some Frylight (so it doesn’t stick to the grill bars) then place on the BBQ.

We used our HEB allowance and served it on a 60g wholemeal roll, but you can use whatever roll you want and Syn it accordingly.

The Mince

For the mince, I’d urge you to get hold of our Protein Food Shop hampers. They’re packed full of the BEST quality meat we’ve ever come across from an online butcher. The hamper is incredible value for money, working out FAR cheaper than the supermarket.

The mince is lovely, and doesn’t come out of the pack in a block that’s difficult to break up like mince from some other online meat suppliers.

We also have a few other exclusive hamper deals available, so it’s well worth checking them out.
Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Sunflower or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Stuffed Burgers recipe.
