Two great burger recipes - sometimes with and sometimes without meat

Do you prefer burgers? No problem. Then you should try these two recipes:

Classic burgers

Ingredients for 4 burgers:

  • 1 romaine lettuce heart
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 small red onions
  • 4 pickles
  • 1000 g ground beef
  • 8 tbsp olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 4 burger buns

  • 2 teaspoons of orange juice
