- 5 min.
- 2 min.Salt and pepper, add 1 tablespoon flour and mix again.
- 20 min.With this mix, form flat rounds of 10 cm or 4 inches diameter and ½ cm or ¼ inch thick.
The best way is to use circles of greaseproof paper of the same diameter to put under the meat.

Meanwhile split the buns and toast lightly on the inside, using a toaster or the barbecue.

Then put the two halves together, and enjoy!
- 2 min.Make hamburgers: on each half buns put (for example) mustard, tomato slice, pickled gherkins, salad, meat, onion slices, etc.
Then put together the two parts, and enjoy it.
Remarks:You can make a shallot sauce: after cooking some of the burgers in the frying pan, add a finely chopped shallot, and cook it in the remaining fat 2 minutes. Then add a half glass of dry white wine, and boil while scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spatula. Add 10 cl cream, allow to thick over a low heat. Use as a dressing on the meat in your burger.
You can also try this version of Janet Clark from Toronto who replaces the onion with a sachet of onion soup, and adds 2 or 3 tablespoons of oat flakes to the meat. Delicious.
One difference between us and our Canadian friends: their burgers are much thicker, about 1 cm or more.
Did you know it: Hamburger is not an american recipe originally, but a german one, from the people of Hambourg, the Hamburgers. They brought it to the USA.
Source:Home made, but dedicated warmly to Janet Clark from Toronto.
