These mouthwatering burgers make for the perfect summertime barbecue or al fresco feast. Try this mouthwatering combination of pork and stilton for a real creamy and succulent bite.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the pork, red onion, rosemary, thyme, chilli powder (if using) and crumbled Stilton. Season with black pepper, then form into 4 burgers. Keep covered and chilled.

When ready to cook, preheat the grill, barbecue or char-grill pan. Cook the burgers for 8-10 minutes per side, depending on their thickness (they should be thoroughly cooked).

Split the burger buns and toast the cut sides, if you like. Top with salad leaves, then a burger. Finish each one off with a slice of Stilton and a drizzle of sweet chilli sauce, if you like.

Cook’s tip: For a great mini treat for parties and buffets, form the burgers into meatballs and bake in the oven at gas 4, 200°C, fan 180°C for 20 minutes, then serve in warm pitta breads with salad and sweet chilli sauce.
