These homemade rosemary and thyme beef burgers are a real family favourite recipe. They're so simple to make and so much better than shop-bought ones.
I do love homemade burgers. They are one of my favourite meals to make too as they are so easy. Usually I put some chilli in them, either chopped fresh chillies or a chilli paste or sauce. This time, I decided to make them more on the herby side. After all, the chilli sauce can still be added once the burger is in the bun.
I also made some homemade bread rolls, making the dough in the bread maker. I made them for the first time in summer and as they are so easy to do, I make a batch every so often and freeze some of them for meals like this.
Don't worry though, I won't blame you if you use bought burger buns. After all, I used dried herbs this time and they still had a lovely herby taste. Of course, fresh would be lovely too.
What can you serve with these homemade beef burgers?
I'm sure everyone has their favourite accompaniments for a burger. I love to add ketchup and cheese to mine and serve lots of salad on the side. I know some people like lots of salad in the bread roll with the burger but that's not my ideal choice!
My husband always adds sliced pickled gherkins and burger sauce too. My son adds as many sauces as he can. He loves the combo of ketchup, barbecue sauce and HP sauce in his. And my daughter? Well she likes mustard in hers.
What can you serve on the side with these thyme and rosemary burgers?
As well as lots of fresh salad leaves I love a few chips with my burger. If I can I'll make some spiced potato wedges or if I'm lazy we might just have oven chips. What do you like with your burger?
