    Serves: 4


    1 shallot, finely chopped
    50g Gorgonzola, crumbled
    454g essential Waitrose British Beef Mince
    25g pack fresh basil

    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.
