Can I freeze these Syn Free Tex Mex Burgers?
This recipe can be frozen, but please remember to do the following;

– Use a container or bag that is suitable for freezing.
– Defrost thoroughly before cooking.
Make sure it’s piping hot before serving!
How do I make these Syn Free Tex Mex Burgers?
Chop the onion finely and add to a large bowl.
Add all of the spices, salt, herbs and fresh chilli to the bowl and mix with the onions.
Add the minced beef and mix well. Make sure you squeeze the mince up with your hands as this will improve the texture of your burger.
Continue to do this for a few minutes.
Heat a large frying pan on a medium heat. Split the burger mix into 4 equal pieces and shape as desired.
The depth of your burger will alter the cooking time – we’ve made these to the same diameter as a Healthy Extra B roll.
Spray the frying pan with Frylight and place the burgers in to cook.
Don’t turn the heat too high or the outside will burn before the burgers are cooked.
Turn the burgers after around 4-5 minutes and cook for a further 4-5 minutes on the second side.
Don’t try to turn the burgers too soon or they may fall apart. The burgers should be well browned and cooked through without having dried out. Serve with your choice of accompaniment!
