Artisan bread:
• 110ml water.
• 15g fresh compressed yeast.
• 35ml olive oil.
• 200g strong flour.
• 1 tsp salt.
• Optional: Sunflower seeds, parmesan, sesame seeds.

• 2 tbsp oyster sauce.
• 1 tbsp Dijon mustard.

• 200g smoked bacon.
• 5 shallots.
• Salt and pepper to taste.

Method (50 minutes)

Make the bread:

  • Preheat oven to 200º C.
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper. Add water, yeast and oil to a Thermomix, and heat for 1 minute at 37°C, on speed setting 1.
  • Add the strong flour and salt. Beat for 1 minute on the kneading setting.
  • Remove the bowl and divide the dough into 4 portions.
  • Add your extras (cheese, seeds etc) to the dough, then shape each piece into a ball.
  • Place the balls of dough on your prepared baking tray and leave to rest for 10-15 minutes.
  • Bake for 20 minutes at 200ºC.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool.

Prepare the meat:

  • Put the meat in a bowl with the liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, oyster sauce, Dijon mustard, egg yolk, salt and pepper.
  • Mix the ingredients well until evenly combined (you don't need to divide the meat at this stage).
  • Finely chop the bacon and shallot. Cook both ingredients over a low heat, and when golden, drain off the oil and then add them to the meat.
  • Divide the mixture into pieces weighing around 150-180g each.
  • Heat a splash of olive oil in a griddle or frying pan, and fry the burgers until done (turn over whilst cooking).
  • When the meat is cooked, put a slice of cheddar cheese on each burger to melt.
