I first saw "Juicy Lucy" burgers on an episode of "Man Versus Food" on Foxtel. (If you haven't seen it, it's a series where a guy travels around the U.S undertaking food eating challenges.) Basically, they are stuffed burgers. You can put anything in them but cheese is a no-brainer! In this recipe, the flax meal helps bind the mix.
Serves: 10 small patties or 5 larger patties
500 gms beef mince
Heaped tsp crushed garlic
1/4 cup flax meal
1 tbs water
Mixed herbs (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Fillings - cheese, jalapeños, diced onion, sundried tomato, etc (whatever you like!)
Mix mince, garlic, herbs, flax meal, salt, pepper and water thoroughly.
Form into thin patties.
Refrigerate for 20 minutes to help firm up patties.
Remove from fridge. Place fillings in the middle of patty (careful not to overfill). Cover with another patty. Press together to seal around edges.
Fry in hot pan, turning carefully when cooked on each side.
