  • 1 toast slice wholemeal bread, crusts removed, soaked in the milk
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1/3 cup chives, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated tasty cheddar cheese
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 8 slices cheddar cheese

Secret sauce

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 3 gherkins, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Dijon mustard

To serve

  • 4-5 white bread rolls, halved
  • 4-5 leaves lettuce
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced



Preheat the oven to grill.

Place all the patty ingredients in a bowl, season and combine.

Shape into 4-5 patties, cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Preheat a BBQ or frying pan to a medium heat.

Brush the patties with a little oil and cook for a few minutes until crunchy and brown on one side.

Turn the patties over, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for another 8-10 minutes until cooked through.

Transfer the patties to a roasting dish or oven tray and lay a slice or two of cheese on top of each one.

Cook under the grill for a minute or so until the cheese starts to melt over the patties.

To make the secret sauce, combine all the ingredients and season as required.

Spread the bottom bun with a dollop of sauce, place a patty on top then add the lettuce leaves and slices of red onion.
