Bring your barbeque to life with this hearty burger that's packed full of flamegrilled flavours. Dieting should not taste this good - but it does!


  • 1 bunch spring onions
  • 400g extra lean minced beef less than 5% fat
  • 2 tsp freshly chopped parsley
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Half a small red pepper
  • 2 ripe tomatoes
  • 1 tsp barbecue seasoning
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped chives
  • 4 rashers back bacon, all visible fat removed
  • Green salad leaves
  • 4 x 60g wholemeal rolls


  1. Finely slice the spring onions, place in a bowl with the beef, parsley and seasoning. Combine with your hands and shape into 4 burgers about 10cm in diameter. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Make the relish. Deseed and chop the pepper, chop the tomatoes, mix with the barbecue seasoning and chives, cover and chill.
  3. Place the burgers under a medium/hot grill for 6-7 minutes on each side until cooked through. Add the bacon for the last 5 minutes of cooking. Layer the salad leaves, bacon, burger and relish in the rolls and serve immediately.
