O.M.G. - these are THE best burgers ever! I know that's a BIG statement but it's true. These are our go-to burgers, the most requested burgers, the burgers we mean when we talk about burgers, the number one on the hit list of burgers.. ok, breathe. Have I stated my case strongly enough? Are you sold on these burgers?
We stuffed our faces with these burgers, then went to the cinema to see "The Hunger Games" - kinda funny when you think about it!

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoons sea salt flakes
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs
4 soft bread rolls
Tomato Relish or store bought tomato relish

Gently cook the paprika, cumin, coriander and oil in a heavy-based frying pan over a medium heat for about 1-2 minutes.
Put the ground pork, chilli powder, garlic, salt, pepper, egg and breadcrumbs into a larg bowl. Add the cooled oil and spice mix and knead for about 2 minutes until well combined.
Preheat a barbecue hotplate or grill pan to medium. Form the mixture into 4 even size patties and cook for about 4 minutes on each side, or until just cooked through.
Lightly grill the bread rolls and serve the patties on the bread with some tomato relish and lettuce and aïoli to the side.
