Add burger complete mix to mince meat and mix thoroughly.

Roll the meat mixture into balls and set aside.
Preheat a pan, skillet or griddle and add oil or butter - add the ball to the pan and press down using a spatula - this is the 'smash' technique.
Press on the patty until cooked and browned before flipping and repeating the process, add cheese or alternative to the patties and cover - allowing it to melt.
Top using your favourite toppings & enjoy.
For Best Results:
The colder the meat and water, the better the appearance and life of the burger.
Leave burgers in the fridge overnight to allow the herbs and spices to marinade with meat.
Use cellophane or greaseproof burger discs between your burgers before they are frozen allowing you to easily separate the burgers before cooking - these are available on our site.
Suitable for freezing.
