A burger consisting of one or more cooked patty of ground meat, which is placed inside a sliced bun. The patty may be pan fried, barbecued, grilled or flame broiled. Burgers are often served with cheese, lettuce, onion, tomato, bacon, pickles or chilies; other ingredients such as mustard, ketchup, relish, mayonnaise or special sauce are frequently used on sesame seed buns. The hamburger topped with a slice of cheese is called a cheeseburger. Here is a simple method of making Thai Chicken Burger.

- Thai red curry paste – 2 Tbsp
- Green onion (finely chopped) – 2
- Sweet chili sauce – 1/3 Cup

- Low-fat cottage cheese – 1/3 Cup
- Dried bread crumbs – 1/2 Cup
- Fish sauce – 2 Tbsp
- Reduced-salt soy sauce – 1 Tbsp
- Coriander leaves (roughly chopped) – 1/2 Cup
- Olive oil
- Multi-grain or whole meal, bread rolls (halved) – 6
- Carrots (peeled, sliced into ribbons) – 2
- Snow pea sprouts (trimmed) – 100g
- Add together chicken mince, onions, 1 tbsp of sweet chili sauce, egg, bread crumbs, curry paste, fish sauce, cottage cheese, soy sauce and coriander in a medium bowl and mix well.
- Take 1/2 cup mixture and shape into 6 x 3cm thick patties and place onto a tray. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Heat barbecue over a medium heat. Spread the oil on the patties and cook for 12 minutes, turning or until cooked.
