Homemade Beef Burgers with fries

A child friendly meal tonight as James had a friend around to play. I have recently acquired a burger press and haven't used it much, so thought it might be nice to make some burgers from scratch. I ended up using a ridiculous amount of mince and the burgers were too thick hence being slightly overdone. What was sadly lacking was a nice glass of red wine to compliment the meat. The recipe below is what I would normally have used for four of us.

Serves 4
450g or 500g pack of extra lean steak mince
half an onion chopped very finely
salt and pepper
half a teaspoon of cumin powder (optional)
an egg to bind the mixture

Add the chopped onion, cumin and salt and pepper to the mince in a mixing bowl. Add the egg and use your hands to bind all the mixture together. Make either 4 large burgers or 8 smaller burgers. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry until the burgers are cooked right through. You should be able to tell from the juices running out when the burger is cooked. I served mine with a slice of edam on top and some french fries. Much nicer than a McDonalds.
