BBQ Meat Patties

Humble beef patties are a staple at any BBQ, particularly fantastic for bulking up the offerings for a large group without further mortgaging the farm! Flavour is key and you can get pretty ballsy with beef mince, so get adventurous, add the flavours your family loves and if all else fails just add garlic!

  • 500gm beef or lamb mince (a little fat is not a bad thing when it comes to patties)
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 Tblsp fresh herbs (I use parsley, thyme and chives)
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 clove fresh chopped garlic (optional)
Put all of the ingredients into a large bowl. Mix together with your hands (clean ones of course) until all of the mixture is combined. Roll into balls just a bit bigger than the size of a golf ball and then squish down into patties. Cook in a pan or on the barbecue.
  • You can add other sauces for flavour, sometimes I use sweet chilli, tomato, Barbecue, or mint if you are using lamb mince
  • To bind the patties for gluten free person, or just to be extra healthy you can use flax fibre/ LSA in the place of the bread crumbs
  • If you make big fat patties then it is a good idea to bake them for a bit in the oven to cook them through. If you cooked them right through on the barbecue the outside would probably be a bit charred!
