Perfect burgers


I’ve tried quite a few burger recipes since starting Slimming World and this is one of my favourites so far. A traditional tasting but juicy and delicious burger

I love a homemade burger and have experimented lots with different recipes even before I was following Slimming world. I think that this recipe is the best healthy one I’ve done. The oyster sauce keeps it moist while cooking, even with a low fat mince and gives it a nice saltiness.

I served this one with curly fries (made with my new sprializer- Click here- £33.77 on Amazon) and broccoli and runner beans fried with red chilli.

You can have a 60g wholemeal roll as your Healthy Extra B if you don’t want to add to the syns!

  • 500 g extra lean mince less than 5% fat
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 egg yolk
  • low calorie cooking spray


  • Fry the onions and garlic until the onion is soft, and allow to cool slightly
  • Mix together the mince, tomato sauce and oyster sauce, mixed herbs, egg yolk and a little salt and pepper.
  • mix through the onion and garlic until well combined
  • Divide the mixture into 6 balls, and flatten into burger shapes
  • Fry the burgers 2 at a time using low calorie cooking spray- about 5-7 minutes on each side depending how you like it.
  • If you aren’t using all the burgers, freeze them raw, wrapped in clingfilm.


I like to use my HEA cheese in the burger- but there are loads of lovely free toppings too- tomatoes, gherkins, a field mushroom…
