Pork & Stilton Burgers

Pork & Stilton Burgers

Mmmm! These burgers are so tasty - ideal for a barbecue on a sunny day.


  • 400g (14oz) lean pork mince
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
  • Pinch chilli powder (optional)
  • 100g (4oz) Stilton cheese, finely crumbled
  • Freshly ground black pepper

To serve:

  • 4 burger buns
  • Mixed salad leaves
  • 4 x 15g (1/2oz) slices Stilton cheese
  • Sweet chilli sauce (optional)

Serves 4

Suitable for freezing


1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pork, red onion, rosemary, thyme, chilli powder (if using) and crumbled Stilton. Season with black pepper, then form into 4 burgers. Keep covered and chilled.

2. When ready to cook, preheat the grill, barbecue or char-grill pan. Cook the burgers for 8-10 minutes per side, depending on their thickness (they should be thoroughly cooked).

3. Split the burger buns and toast the cut sides, if you like. Top with salad leaves, then a burger. Finish each one off with a slice of Stilton and a drizzle of sweet chilli sauce, if you like.

Cook's tip: For a great mini treat for parties and buffets, form the burgers into meatballs and bake in the oven at 200°C/fan oven 180°C/Gas Mark 6 for 20 minutes, then serve in warm pitta breads with salad and sweet chilli sauce.
