Double cheeseburger

Pressing the centre of the patty helps the cheese to stay on top.

Preparation: 5 min | cooking: 10 min | Serves 4


500 g pork mince

salt and black pepper

15 ml (1 tbsp) oil

8 slices Cheddar cheese

45 ml (3 tbsp) water

250 ml (1 cup) mayonnaise

30 ml (2 tbsp) tomato sauce

30 ml (2 tbsp) orange juice

4 burger buns, split and toasted


  • Shape the mince into 8 patties, and press your thumb in the centre of each patty.
  • Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the oil in a pan on high until it simmers. Add the patties and cook until lightly browned (about 5 minutes).
  • Turn once halfway through.
  • During the last 2 minutes of cooking time, add 1 cheese slice to each patty.
  • Pour the water in the pan and cover with a lid to steam the burgers and melt the cheese.
  • Mix the mayonnaise, tomato sauce, orange juice and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Put the burgers on the buns with the mayo. Serve with toppings and sides of choice.
