Method

 
Combine the meat, onion and parsley in a mixing bowl and mix together well.
Once properly mixed, spread the mix out in the bowl so you can get salt and pepper spread out evenly.
Lightly beat the eggs and add to the mixture.
Mix until the egg is incorporated, then add the breadcrumbs and mix again.
Next, make the patties. You can use a patty press as the patties end up a bit sturdier and do not fall apart so easily. 
When you are done, put them in the fridge for a while to set.
Toast the rolls in the oven to crisp them up a bit, otherwise they might lap up too much of the juices and become soggy. Just cut them open and pop them under the grill for a while until they are lightly brown.
Slice the tomatoes (always sprinkle tomatoes with a bit of salt, it brings out their sweetness), slice the cheese and wash the leaves.
Fry or braai the patties over a medium high heat.
About 4 minutes before they reach your desired level of “doneness", give them a dash of basting sauce and spread with a brush.
Once finished cooking, assemble the burgers.
