  • Using a wooden spoon or preferably latex gloves mix or knead the mixture for around five minutes or until the mince is homogenized & smooth
  • Split the mince into four portions
  • One portion at a time knead the mince for a further minute & shape into a patty shape making a dimple with your thumb in the center of each patty
  • Using a hot fry pan with a few tablespoons of oil or a griddle brushed with oil cook each patty for around 3 mins on each side of medium heat
