Cheese burger pies
|600 g||beef mince|
|1||medium onion — sliced|
|1 tsp||fresh garlic — crushed|
|1 tsp||ground cumin|
|50 g||mozzarella cheese|
|50 g||cheddar cheese|
|1||large onion — finely sliced|
|2 tbsp||balsamic vinegar|
For the caramelised onion:
In a frying pan on medium-high heat, melt the butter and add in the onions. Spread the onions out evenly over the pan and let cook, stirring occasionally.
After 10 minutes, sprinkle a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of sugar on the onions. Cook until the onions are a rich, browned color. At the end of the cooking process add in the balsamic vinegar help deglaze the pan and bring some additional flavor to the onions. Set aside to cool.
For the burger:
Fry the onion with a little olive oil until soft and allow to cool.
Add to a bowl along with the mince, garlic, egg, spices, and breadcrumbs. Mix together. Divide mixture into four equal portions and shape each into a patty. Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a pan and fry each patty until golden on either side.
Place the patties aside to cool. Roll out the puff pastry, using a small plate, slightly larger than the size of your patty, cut off the excess dough. Place the cooled patty on the disc, along with some caramelised onion and cheese mixture.
Roll the remaining puff pastry out into a slightly larger disc than the previous one, and drape this over the top of the burger patty. Crimp the edges with your finger and thumb to secure the pie.
Egg wash the top and bake at 180°C for 30 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
Serve with a side of chips or a light salad. Enjoy!
