Ingredients to serve 1

  • 125g x beef mince
  • 50g x homestyle bacon – cut in half, crossways
  • ¼ head x lettuce – remove leaves
  • ½ x tomato – slice (½ cm)
  • 20g x cheddar – slice
  • ¼ x red onion – slice thinly
  • ¼ x chilli – deseed & chop finely
  • ¼ clove x garlic – peel, grate finely & chop
  • ¼ x lemon
  • 1½ tbsp x Carb Smart mayonnaise
  • ¼ tsp x white wine vinegar
  • ⅛ x basil – tear leaves
  • 3g x Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp x olive oil (from your pantry – for the dressing)
  • 1 tsp x sunflower seeds
  • olive oil (from your pantry)
  • salt & black pepper (from your pantry)
  • tin foil (from your pantry)


Step 1

Preparation: Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

Lemon: Using the fine side of the grater, grate the skin of the lemon to create zest. Then cut in half and juice.

Step 3

Sunflower seeds: Place a small pan on high heat and dry toast the sunflower seeds until lightly browned - about a minute. Toss often to make sure they don’t burn. Remove from stove and set aside.

Step 4

Bacon: Place a large pan on a medium heat and fry the bacon in a little olive oil until golden and crispy, about 8 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Step 5

Patty: Shape the mince into a patty. Drizzle a little olive oil into a large frying pan and place on medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the patty and cook for 4-6 minutes on one side. Turn the patty over and cook for another 2 minutes. Then top the patty with a portion of cheddar. Cover the pan with a lid or tin foil and let it cook until the cheese melts and the patty cooks through – about 4-6 minutes.

Step 6

Mustard & vinegar dressing: Whisk together the Dijon mustard and white wine vinegar, then slowly add the olive oil (see quantity above) and season with salt and pepper.

Step 7

Slaw: Mix the cabbage, basil and sunflower seeds. Dress with the mustard and vinegar dressing. Set aside.

Step 8

Aioli: Mix the Carb Smart mayonnaise, chilli, garlic, lemon zest and lemon juice.

Step 9

Serve the burger patty topped with the bacon, aioli, lettuce, tomato and red onion. Serve the slaw on the side.
