How to cook a burger on the stove

Make burger patties by combining ground beef/beef mince with spices, breadcrumbs and beaten egg. Mix until just combined then form patties. Heat a grill pan or skillet until hot then add the patties and cook until golden brown and caramelized on both sides and cooked to your preference, approximately 2-4 minutes per side. Add cheese to the top of the burger and allow to melt before serving.

How to make hash browns

The key to a really good hash brown is to rinse grated potatoes until the water runs clear. This gets rid of any excess starch which could add a gluey texture to the finished hash brown. Dry the potatoes well and then mix with a little flour to bind them, a pinch of salt and pepper and that’s it. No egg necessary. Fry in really hot oil until golden brown and crisp and you’re done.
