So, I have finally got around to dedicating a web page to the wonderful art of burger making. It is a great regret that many people in the world today have no idea how to make a decent burger.

The burgers that are purchased from fast food stores leave a lot to be desired, those purchased from supermarkets are always bland (and in 2013 we discovered that many were not even made from beef, but horses!). Burgers from greasy burger vans often taste the best, but usually because you are pissed when you eat them.

Here I will share with you my knowledge, and teach you to make the perfect burger. I also invite you all to provide your favourite recipes, as although I am the burgermeister, I am sure there are still improvements to be made.


A self declared burgermeister.

P.S. In addition to cooking burgers I also write as Webologist. However, it is unlikely you will be interested in that, burgers are much more interesting.


  • Dont ask me why but Burger sauce has become a bit of a fascination for me over the years. Without really setting out to, I have come up with what I think are pretty good versions of the two most widely discussed burger sauces on the web. So I thought I would share them here, both are quick and easy…. Enjoy;

    Tripple O sauce (from my posting on WikiAnswers.com)
    There is a whole lot of misinformation on the web about Triple O sauce. Here is the closest approximation to it,…. Well actually there are 2 sauces! 1. Red burger relish – simple, just use Bicks burger relish, it’s the same thing! 2. White sauce – mix 1 cup Helmans Mayo, 3-4 tsp of water, 1 tsp of honey, 1 tsp ground paprika, quarter tsp ground cayenne pepper, half tsp sugar (optional/to taste), dash of lemon juice, half tsp minced or finley crushed garlic, half tsp White vinegar, 1 tsp tomato puree. Mix well, refrigerate over night and there you have it! Don forget to add some coleslaw on the side mixed with a little horseradish sauce for the authentic White Spot experience.

    Big Mac Sauc
    Start with a jar of Tartare sauce, bear with me here, Mcdonalds have used straight Tartare in a couple of thier other burgers so using this makes more sense to me that they would use it over regular mayo or even Thousand island dressing (yuk). Use the best Tartare available or otherwise make your own (Google it). Empty the sauce into a bowl or jug and add 2 large teaspoons of Sweet onion relish (Heinz or similar). Also add a good pinch of salt, half a teaspoon of ground paprika, roughly a tablespoon of ketchup, a dollop of sweet cucumber relish or use half a tablespoon of diced sweet pickled cucumber, 1-2 teaspoons of white vinegar (helps achive desired consistency) and a few of drops of Worcestershire sauce. Mix it all together well and either use immediately or refrigerate until needed. Note: You will find that if you assemble your burgers with my sauce (especcilly if you add burger cheese slices & diced onion to your burger) and then finish them for a few minutes in a warm oven,l the sauce will warm through, meld with the cheese etc and will taste correct.

  • Thanks Dom, a good burger sauce is always a great addition to a burger!
