Low Carb Burger

Low Carb Burger

Serves 2


  • 300 g minced Scotch Beef PGI

  • 3 spring onions, trimmed and finely sliced

  • 1 tsp finely chopped parsley

  • 1 tsp grated horseradish (either fresh or hot grated horseradish from a jar) or seeded mustard

  • 50 g mature cheddar cheese, coarsely chopped (optional)

  • 1 large courgette, cut in 1 cm diagonal slices

  • Small sprig rosemary, finely chopped

  • 1 beef tomato cut into 4 or 6 slices Olive oil

  • Olive oil

  • Curly lettuce leaves

  • 1 red onion, sliced ultra thin

Cooking Method

  1. Mix together all the burger ingredients and some seasoning, squish all the mixture together with your hands so that the ingredients combine, then shape into 2 burgers. Chill if you have time before cooking.
  2. Heat a griddle pan, blot up any moisture from the surface of the courgettes and dry griddle them for a few minutes each side until clear char lines appear, remove to a plate and brush each side with a little olive oil and sprinkle on a pinch of chopped rosemary.
  3. Turn up the heat and cook the burgers for about 5 minutes on each side or until done to your liking.
  4. Pile up the lettuce leaves with courgette and tomato slices, a juicy hot burger and a flourish of red onion slices on the top.

Serving suggestions

For an extra treat take a low calorie mayonnaise and add some finely chopped herbs and have a modest dollop to melt on top.
