Traditional or gourmet, mini or XXL, light or served with rich sauces. With such an endless variety of options, everyone has their own favourite. Everybody also has their own secret recipe, jealously hidden away and shared only with loved ones. Today we’re going to suggest a very tasty version, perfect for a BBQ with friends or a rather special dinner at home: herby hamburgers.

Where do hamburgers come from?

Hamburgers are a great classic from the U.S.A although not everyone knows that they actually arrived from Europe. In fact, the name hamburger comes from the city of Hamburg where the famous flat meat patty was born. Germans emigrating to the United States brought this recipe – originally made from beef – with them to North America. ricetta hamburger agli aromi - panino multistrato

Some useful tips before trying out the recipe

For a family dinner or to share with friends you can have fun preparing your hamburgers with lots of different garnishes for really special results. How can you serve a perfect hamburger? To make your dish tastier, do not underestimate your choice of bread roll. We suggest you pair our herby hamburgers with soft rolls, either made with milk or mixed grains, which are perfect for absorbing the condiment and can even be grilled lightly before adding the filling. You can really be creative with the garnish. Great classics are slices of tomato and lettuce leaves, tasty grilled vegetable, mushrooms, bacon or a nice thick slice of cheese that will melt with the heat of the hamburger: which is your favourite? Let your imagination loose and use your favourite ingredients: our herby hamburgers will be even more delicious if you enjoy them in good company!

Herby hamburgers: recipe


  • 400 g of minced beef
  • 400 g of minced pork
  • 1 teaspoon of very finely chopped onions
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon of cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of coriander powder
  • ½ teaspoon of ground pepper


  1. Mix all the ingredients evenly.
  2. Make 4 equally-sized hamburgers using either your hands or a hamburger mould. Don’t press down too hard: the hamburger must be compact yet soft.
  3. Sear for 5/5 minutes on both sides, on a kitchen griddle or – better still – on a  barbecue.
  4. For a lighter version there is no need to add oil; for an even tastier burger add oil, salt and other spices to taste.
