1Place the beef mince, garlic, and a little salt and pepper in a large bowl. Tear bread into small pieces, place in a small bowl, and pour over the milk and olive oil. Set aside it for a few minutes or until bread absorbs most of the liquid. Mix with a fork.
2Add the bread mixture, lemon rind and juice, Parmesan, chopped basil, to the beef, using your hand bring the mixture together and knead until combined.
3Shape the mixture into four burgers. Lightly brush the burgers with oil. Preheat the barbecue or pan to moderately high. Add burgers to the barbecue or pan, lower the heat to moderate.
4Cook for 6-7 minutes each side or until thoroughly cooked. Turn them once only. Serve burgers on char-grilled Italian bread that is topped with rocket and roasted capsicum. Dollop each burger with a slice of blue cheese.
5Serving suggestion: Serve burgers on char-grilled Italian bread that is topped with rocket and roasted capsicum.


Burgers should always be thoroughly cooked. Burgers should not be served rare or pink. A good guide is to insert a skewer into the thickest part; if it is ready to eat the juices will be clear.
