I do have a sausage maker, but time is short, so Merguez flavoured burgers it as birthday treat #2 for my now 15 year old, to be cooked after yet another parents' evening.
1 thick slice of bread
1 tsp harissa
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp ground coriander
1 large clove of garlic, crushed
1 free range egg
Make the slice of bread into breadcrumbs in a mini food processor.
Put all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix thoroughly with your hands.
On a greased baking tray, divide the mixture into half, and then each half into three. I found it makes 6 burgers weighing just over 100g each which seems a good size for a 'healthy' burger.
Chill in the fridge on the baking tray as long as you can to make them nice and firm for frying.
Fry over a medium heat for about 5 minutes each side for a well done burger. Or bake at 200C Fan on the baking tray.
