This week it's a vintage Jamie recipe - look how young he looks - from his second book The Return of the Naked Chef. They're called Botham burgers as they used to be on the menu in the pub Jamie grew up in, whose name was The Cricketers. Jamie suggests shaping them round like a cricket ball too. Howzat! 52 Cookbooks: the challenge is to cook a new recipe from one of my (many) cookbooks each week for a year...
With the weather staying warm we've been making the most of our BBQ and the plan was to use it for these burgers.
As luck would have it, the day we had these it was raining by the evening.
Although that was probably a good thing as they were huuge!
I halved the recipe as there are just two of us, so that was 1/2kg of mince, 1 red onion, 1 egg, breadcrumbs, Dijon mustard, crushed coriander and cumin seeds and seasoning.
I started by trying to mix this with a silicone spoon, but quickly realised this wasn't very effective or the Jamie-way!
