Italian-style burgers with fresh basil dressing


1 shallot, finely chopped
50g Gorgonzola, crumbled
454g essential Waitrose British Beef Mince
25g pack fresh basil
4 tbsp Hellmann’s With Olive Oil
4 ciabatta rolls
70g pack wild rocket
2 tomatoes, sliced


1. Mix the shallot and Gorgonzola into the beef and shape into 4 even-sized burgers. Cook under a medium grill for 7–8 minutes on each side until cooked through with no pink meat and nicely browned on the outside.

2. Meanwhile, pick the basil leaves from the stalks and finely chop.
Stir into the Hellmann’s.

3. Cut the ciabatta rolls in half and lightly toast the cut-side. Pile
the rocket and tomato on the bases and top with the burgers. Spoon over the basil dressing, top with the bun and serve.

Cook’s tip
If cooking the burgers on a barbecue, chill them for at least an
hour to make sure they hold their shape while turning.
