Method

  1. Step 1

    Place mince, onion, breadcrumbs, egg, seasoning and parsley in a large bowl. Use your hands to mix until well combined. Season. Divide into 6 portions. Shape each portion into a 10cm patty. Transfer to a plate. Cover and place in fridge for 30 mins to chill.

  2. Step 2

    Heat a barbecue grill or chargrill on medium. Cook patties for 4-5 mins each side or until golden. Transfer to a clean plate and loosely cover with foil. Set aside for 5 mins to rest.

  3. Step 3

    Use a small sharp knife to trim the cheddar slices into teeth shapes. Divide the roll bases among serving plates and spread with tomato chutney or tomato sauce. Top with a salami, beetroot or pickled cucumber slice, allowing slices to hang over the sides of the roll bases. Arrange lettuce or rocket, tomato, patties, cheddar slices and remaining beetroot over the roll bases. Spread roll tops with aioli and place on top of burgers. Arrange olives or pickled onions on toothpicks and insert in the burgers to serve.
