As it’s National Burger Day, we wanted to share a burger recipe that can be done in your wood fired oven. It’s one of our absolute favourites!

red-wine-burger-1-731x1024You’ll Need

  • 400g lamb mince
  • 2 Jacobs crackers
  • 80g Dorset blue vinney (or good quality blue cheese!)
  • 1 red onion, super thinly sliced
  • 2tsp good quality red wine vinegar
  • 1tsp Maldon salt


Firstly, fire up your oven to its optimum temperature and allow to cool to around 300C.

Next, heat a griddle pan in the front of the oven.  Don’t have one? Don’t forget to purchase our fantastic set of cookware, which includes a griddle, small saucepan, dutch oven, frying and much more!

Then, to make the pickle, put your super thinly sliced red onions, salt and vinegar in a bowl and scrunch up for 2 minutes with your hands. Leave to one side.

Mix your lamb mince with the smashed up Jacobs crackers, season well with salt and black pepper, and mould into 2 burger patties- ensuring you knock out as much air as possible. Cover and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes.

Add a lug of olive oil to your pan and cook the burgers for around 6 minutes.

Then, carefully remove the pan from your wood fired oven, and top the burgers with cheese and cover with tin foil.

Put back in the oven for around 2 minutes- or until the cheese is melted and the burgers are cooked through.

Finally, serve in a brioche bun with pickle inside, and cucumber yoghurt on the side. Tasty!
