Fry the onion and red pepper in the vegetable oil for about 5 minutes or until softened. In a mixing bowl, combine the sautéed onion together with all the other ingredients. With floured hands, form into 10 burgers.
Fry the burgers in a little hot oil in a large shallow frying pan on a high heat to brown and seal, then lower the heat and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Turn them over and continue to cook for about 4 minutes. Alternatively, BBQ the burgers. When hot place 4 burgers on the BBQ and cook for about 4 minutes each side or until browned and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining burgers.
