Essentials recipe Triple tested: A generous dollop of fruity salsa gives these bite-sized burgers extra zing - great for the kids. Brought to you by Essentials magazine


  • 500g pork mince
  • 100g white breadcrumbs
  • 2tsp Cajun spice mix
  • 2 shallots, peeled and finely chopped

For tasty kebabs, thread these mini burgers onto skewers along with chunks of halloumi and pepperdew peppers.


  1. In a bowl, mix together the pork mince, white breadcrumbs, Cajun spice mix and shallots. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Divide the mixture into 12 equal amounts and shape into patties. Chill in the fridge for 10 mins to firm up.
  2. Fry in a hot griddle pan (you may need to cook in several batches) for 4-5 mins on each side, or cook under the grill for 8-10 mins, turning halfway through, until brown and thoroughly cooked through.
