How to make a cheese stuffed burger

  1. Start by seasoning your lean beef mince with salt and pepper.
  2. Split the beef mixture into 4 balls and press the mixture out into the palm of your hand, creating a flat burger shape.
  3. Place a chunk of mozzarella into the middle and then gently press the burger closed around it.
  4. Press the burger down again to make it flat and burger shaped, and then repeat for all four of the burgers.
  5. Pre-heat a pan and spray with low calorie oil spray.
  6. Fry the burgers on each side for approximately 5 minutes each – but this will be dependent on the size and thickness of your burgers so be sure to checked your burger is cooked through before removing it from the heat.
  7. Stack your burger up with lettuce, red onion, tomato slices, gherkins and some reduced fat burger sauce.
