  • 1

    For the burgers, set a frying pan with the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 4-6 minutes, until softened. Remove from the pan and leave to cool completely

  • 2

    Put the cooled onion, mince, beaten egg, breadcrumbs, garlic granules, chill (if using) and burger sauce in a large bowl and mix really well to combine. 

  • 3

    Divide the mixture into four and, with wet hands, roll each piece into a ball. Press a piece of mozzarella in the center of each, then cover the cheese with the mince and form into a burger patty. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes

    For the caramelized onions, set a heavy-based frying pan with the butter over a low heat. Add the onions and cook for 15 minutes, stirring every so often to prevent catching (don’t be tempted to turn up the heat at this point). 

  • 5

    Once softened, add the sugar and vinegar, increase the heat slightly and cook for a further 5- 10 minutes, until caramelized. Set aside until needed.

    Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper

     For the maple bacon, arrange the turkey bacon on the prepared tray. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes.

    Remove the tray from the oven, drain off any excess fat and brush the bacon slices all over with the maple syrup. Return to the oven for 5 minutes, until crisp. Keep warm until needed.

     Set a large frying pan with the sunflower oil over a high heat. Once hot, add the burgers and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Brush all over with the burger sauce, transfer to the prepared tray and cook in the oven for 8-10 minutes, until the mince is cooked through and the mozzarella melted
