Cajun Bacon and Mushroom Cheeseburger

I already have a burger recipe on here, but i thought i would design a different flavoured one and add a few more toppings.
To say it went down well is an understatement, my husband went mad for them and they go so well with the cajun fries.

Makes 4 burgers


500g extra lean mince beef (5% or less)
2 tsp Worcester sauce
½ tsp garlic salt
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
3 tsps cajun seasoning
2 onions sliced
4 rashers of bacon fat cut off
8 open cup mushrooms
4 small wholemeal rolls
4 slices of low low toastie cheese


Mix together the beef, worcester sauce, garlic salt, 1 tsp of the cajun seasoning and pepper, make into 4 patties and chill for 30 minutes.

Heat a frying pan with frylight and fry the onions over a medium low heat until they are soft and golden for about 40 minutes.
In another pan sprayed with frylight cook the bacon and mushrooms, set aside and keep warm.
Wipe out the pan and spray with frylight again and brown the rolls on the insides.
Sprinkle the patties with the remaining cajun seasoning and fry the patties for 3 minutes, don't move or fiddle with the patties until they are to be turned over. Once you have turned them, cover them with a bowl to steam for 2 minutes then top the patties with a slice of cheese, cover again till the cheese has melted.
Put a layer of the caramelised onions on the bottom of the roll and add 2 mushrooms, top with the patty then the bacon and put the lid of the roll on, repeat with the rest of the burgers. Serve with synfree cajun fries.

    1. If you use the cheese and bread rolls as your healthy extras it's syn free as long as you use 5% or least fat minced beef :-)
