Nutty Beefburger with Goats Cheese and Tomato

These substantial burgers are a great supper dish.  Add relish, salad etc or eat it just the way it is.  You won't need chips. 
You can replace the Almonds with chopped walnuts (also delicious)

Ingredients for 4 large burgers

400g lean minced beef
1 large onion, finely chopped
Breadcrumbs from a large slice of seeded bread
2 tsp English mustard
Salt and freshly ground pepper
50g toasted flaked almonds
1 egg, lightly beaten
4 large burger buns
Olive oil
4 medium tomatoes
4 slices goats cheese, (I used Somerset)

Place the minced beef, breadcrumbs, chopped onion, beaten egg and mustard in a large bowl, season generously with salt and pepper.

Bring the mixture together with a fork then add the almonds and mix in with your hands.  Shape the mixture into 4 equal rounds.  Refigerate for 15 minutes.

In a frying pan, heat a little olive oil over a medium heat, place the 4 burgers in the pan and cook for 4 minutes each side, turning them frequently.

Pre-heat the oven to 180C

Place the goats cheese on top of the burger followed by sliced tomato.

Bake in the oven for 5-6 minutes.  Toast the burger bun both sides, Place the burger on one half and drizzle with olive oil.
