- Place mince, egg, garlic, spring onions, oregano, parsley and lemon zest in a bowl. Mix with your hands, squeezing to combine. Add salt and pepper and mix well. Divide mixture and shape into six flat patties.
- Heat a frying pan, add a little oil and cook burger patties over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Remove to drain on paper towels.
- Chargrill or toast bread and spread with mustard. Arrange rocket, burger patties, feta and beetroot on top. Serve immediately.
Tip: open burgers like these make a nice change from the traditional burger bun option.
