400g iceberg lettuce
400g beef mince
70g streaky bacon
50g cheddar (block or grated)
salt & pepper
1 tsp mustard
60g gherkins (sweetened, please use the ones with sweeteners rather than sugar)
10 ml liquid of the gherkins
Time: ca. 45 min. / Cooking-/Baking time: ca. 10 Min. Resting time: ca. 30 min.
Cut the gherkins in very fine cubes.
Mix the mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and the liquid of the gherkins and add the gherkins.
Leave the dressing to rest for 10 - 30 mins.
Clean and cut the iceberg lettuce in strips of about 1 cm in width. Dry thoroughly.
Cut the cheddar into thin strips, or alternatively use grated cheddar.
Fry the bacon in a frying pan, or for a healthier option use the grill.
Cut the onions into fine cubes and fry off in the bacon fat, or if you prefer doing the bacon under the grill, use a non-stick pan. Add the beef mince and fry off well. Spread the beef mince and add half of the cheddar, covering up the pan so the cheese melts.
Mix the other half of the cheddar with the iceberg lettuce.
Spread the onion/beef mix across the iceberg lettuce, add the bacon and service immediately.
