    Organic Beef Burgers with Crispy Onion Rings and Blue Cheese Dip

    This juicy organic burger is a real treat served with a dollop of creamy, full-flavoured Saint Agur dip.

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes 35 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 1 large red onion
    • 100ml milk
    • 6 tbsp plain flour
    • 1 tsp Bart Ground Turmeric
    • 340g pack Waitrose 4 Organic Beef Burgers
    • Sunflower oil, for shallow frying
    • For the dip
    • 150g pack Saint Agur blue cheese
    • ½ x 200ml tub half fat crème fraîche


    1. Cut the onion into thick rings, about 5-8mm wide. Separate the rings, place in a bowl and cover with the milk. Set aside for 15 minutes, turning from time to time. Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix together the flour, turmeric and a little seasoning. Set aside. If time is short, fry the onion rings without soaking first.
    2. To make the dip, place the blue cheese and crème fraîche in a bowl and beat together until light and well blended, using an electric whisk if you have one. Chill until ready to serve.
    3. Preheat the grill to high and cook the burgers for 14-16 minutes, turning once, until thoroughly cooked and there is no pink meat.
    4. Meanwhile, heat oil 1cm deep in a high-sided frying pan. Drain the onion rings, discarding the milk, then dip each one in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess. Fry for 2-3 minutes until crisp and a deep golden colour. Drain well on kitchen paper.
    5. Serve the burgers on lightly-toasted English muffins or farmhouse rolls, with the blue cheese dip, crispy onion rings, and a salad of sliced tomatoes and watercress drizzled with balsamic vinegar.

    Cook's tips

    For larger appetites, use fresh Aberdeen Angus Quarter Pounder Beefburgers. If you soak the onion rings in milk before frying they will have a softer texture and a milder flavour.

    Drinks recommendation

    Serve with a smoky, mellow Shiraz.
