A healthy burger with avocado, egg and chilli lime. This easy burger recipe is great for a quick bite when friends drop round,

  • 500g minced beef
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 green chilli (chopped)
  • 20g breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 Avocado
  • 4 eggs
  • 100g sliced cheese
  • 4 wholegrain stotties (or similar)

For the burgers:

  1. Turn the oven on to 180 degrees
  2. Chop the green chilli, separate the egg yolk from the egg white and get rid of the whites, and juice the lime.
  3. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl, using your hands to mix the ingredients together well.
  4. Quarter the mixture and use your hands to flatten the mince into patties
  5. Fry the patties on a medium heat, flipping after a couple of minutes until browned on either side.
  6. Transfer the patties into an ovenproof dish, cover the pan with silver foil and place in the oven for 15 minutes until cooked through.

Whilst the burgers are cooking:

  1. Cut the avocado in half and use a spoon to peel it out of the skin, chop into slices and leave to garnish.
  2. Fry 4 eggs in a pan with a little oil
  3. Finely slice the cheese, about 2 minutes before the burgers are due to come out put the cheese on and allow to melt.
  4. Take the burgers out, top with the rest of the ingredients and put them in the wholegrain bun.
