This has been an alltime family favourite. We use the smaller buns for deck parties and the larger buns for a main meal with a large salad. Recipe can be doubled or tripled to match size of group – I make a single recipe at a time to ensure ingredients get mixed evenly. Patties can be made ahead and frozen a short time until needed. Instead of the ‘Alternate’ mustard/butter mix on the buns prepared mustard can be drizzeled per taste after serving.


  1. 1Heat barbecue to 450 degrees. Hand mix all ingredients except for buns, butter and mustard. Form into patties- I do mine 1/2 inch thick – to overlap edges of bun. Allow a bit for shrinkage when cooked.
  2. 2Wipe grill with vegetable oil and lay patties on hot grill. Sear one side – 3 minutes. Turn barbecue to come down to 400 degrees. Turn over and sear second side another 3 minutes. Optional: A slice of cheese can be put on the patties when searing second side. Cook at lower temperature to desired taste.
  3. 3While patties are cooking slice buns and brown inside and out ’til golden. Alternative: Before putting buns on grill mix butter and mustard and smear insides of buns – brown outside of buns first.
  4. 4Serve with slices of gherkins (or dill), tomatoes, white onion and lettuce for garnish.
