  • 1 kg lean beef mince
  • 4 spring onions, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • good-quality braai marinade, for basting
  • 4 good-quality sesame burger buns


  • 4 fried eggs
  • 1 wedge brie, thinly sliced
  • 1 packet (250 g) bacon, fried until crispy
  • 2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 gherkins, sliced


Combine the mince, spring onions and salt and pepper in a bowl and mix together. Divide into 4 equal portions and shape into burger patties about 15 cm across and 4–5 cm thick.

Braai the burgers over hot coals or in a hot griddle pan, brushing occasionally with the marinade. Cook each side for 4–5 minutes.

Assemble the burgers between the buns and top each with an egg, some cheese, bacon, tomato, onion and gherkins.
