Homemade Gourmet Burger

The Lake Hotel Gourmet Burger is one of our most popular Lakeside Bistro dishes. Chef Noel Enright has put together some simple steps for you to create your very own Gourmet Burger and bring a little taste of The Lake Hotel to your home.


Gourmet Homemade Burger


500g lean mince

1x egg

1x small onion diced

1x clove garlic grated

65g breadcrumbs 

30g plain flour

2 x tablespoons Worcestershire sauce



  • Begin by frying onion and garlic gently in a little oil until it takes on a bit of colour.
  • In a large bowl, mix the fried onion and garlic with all other ingredients (mince etc). Mixing by hand, until they are fully combined. 
  • Shape into 6 beef patties.
  • Cook in a frying pan and serve in a bun with your preferred garnish.

In The Lake Hotel we serve our burger as 2 patties in a brioche bun with tomato relish, lettuce, gherkin, smoked bacon & cheddar cheese.

Other fillings can include smoked cheese, crispy onions, fried egg or truffle mayo for a bit of indulgence.
