With oregano and parsley combined with classic Worcestershire sauce, delicious Dijon mustard and onion and garlic, there is plenty of fragrant tastes to write home about in this delicious burger recipe.

What’s more, this recipe couldn’t be more easy to whip you and you can easily pop them on the barbecue – so they’re great for any summer parties you might have coming up.

Ready in just 30 minutes, you will need to let the burger patties chill for a little while before you cook them but the finished result is totally worth the wait. This recipe makes enough burgers to serve for people but it can easily be doubled or halved to suit more or less diners.
