Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan and fry the chopped onion until lightly browned.

Add the mincemeat and onions to a large bowl with the balance of the ingredients, except for the olive oil. Combine well and shape into flattened burger patties. Place on a greased baking tray, cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.

Lightly coat the bottom of a non-stick frying pan with olive oil. Heat the pan and fry the burgers on medium heat for 5 – 7 minutes per side, being cautious when turning to prevent breaking the burger.

If you prefer a well-done burger, fry for longer. If the burger is browning too quickly turn the heat down. Remove fried burgers to an ovenproof serving platter.

5

To reheat burgers, preheat the oven to 180 ° heat until the burgers are heated through.

6

Toast the cut sides of the burger roll on a heated dry frying pan. Top roll with a burger patty, sliced tomato, sliced red onion and microgreens.

Serve with apple chisp and onion rings (if using), and a sauce of your choice.
