Sweet Home Alabama Cheese Burgers

A simple burger can be a thing of beauty. Simply rub the Sweet Home Alabama into the steak mince and season the top and bottom of the burgers to give an extra zing to your burgers



  • 225g steak mince
  • 2 tsp Sweet Home Alabama
  • 2 cheddar cheese slices
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp tomato ketchup
  • 1/2 pickled gherkin, diced finely
  • 1/2 pickled gherkin, sliced
  • 2 baby gem lettuce leaves
  • 1 tomato, thinly sliced
  • 2 Brioche burger buns


        1. Add the steak mince to a bowl and season generously with salt and pepper. Then add 1 tsp of the Sweet Home Alabama and mix lightly with a spoon
        2. Form the mince into two patties and shape into burgers
        3. Add the remaining tsp of Sweet Home Alabama over the top and bottom of the two burger patties. Let them rest in the fridge for 1/2 an hour
        4. Make the burger sauce by mixing the mayonnaise, tomato ketchup and diced gherkin together
        5. Heat a small amount of vegetable oil in a frying pan or griddle to a high heat and then add the burgers
        6. Fry on each side for 3 minutes, adding the cheese onto the burgers for the last minute, and then remove from the heat, cover the pan with a lid and let them rest in the pan for 5 minutes
        7. Toast the inside of the two burger buns under the grill and then build the burgers with the tomato slices, lettuce and sliced gherkins

      Chicken fajitas are on the menu here every week because they're so quick and easy to make. We like ours just as they come, but feel free to add grated cheese, soured cream, guacomole according to taste.

      This dip is so easy to make and can be flavoured with many different rubs. For a more traditional houmous replace the rub with 1 tsp ground cumin.

      Stollen is made in Germany at Christmas time. These stollen bites make great treats over the festive period, but also go down well over the rest of the year as well!
