Love a good BBQ? Want to invite friends round but can't quite stretch to it? Well, we've got a bit of a gem of a recipe for you! Check out this budget burger recipe – it's an easy essential for any BBQ (and they taste better shop-bought ones too!).

Preparation time: 20 minutes, cooking time: 5-10 minutes, serves: 4-5
Total cost: approx. 64p per serving*

1 tsp cooking oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp tomato puree

Breadcrumbs (1 slice)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp chilli flakes (optional)
Burger buns to serve

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
Using your hands, shape the mixture into a patty and rub with oil.
Heat a frying pan until smoking hot and fry the burger for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
