Homemade Burgers with Lucy’s Blushing Beetroot

What can be better than a juicy beef burger, straight from the barbecue? This homemade burger recipe is so simple, you’ll wonder why you ever bought burgers. We think Lucy’s Beetroot & Horseradish relish makes the perfect topping!

Serves 4-6


  • Lucy’s Blushing Beetroot relish
  • 500g beef mince
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • handful of fresh herbs, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • a few handfuls of rocket
  • brioche burger buns, toasted
  • salt & pepper


1. Using your hands or a food processor, mix the beef mince, red onion, herbs, Worcestershire sauce, tomato puree, egg yolk and breadcrumbs until well combined. Season well with salt & pepper.

2. Using your hands, shape small balls with the meat mixture then flatten into patties.

3. Form small balls with the meat mix using your hands.

4. Heat up a stove-top grill pan or the barbecue.

5. Brush the patties lightly with oil then cook for approx. 4 minutes on each side (cooking time will depend on burger size).

6. Assemble the burgers: place inside the toasted brioche buns, topped with a dollop of Lucy’s Blushing Beetroot relish and a handful of rocket.

7. Enjoy!
