    2 hrs 15 mins

    2 hrs 25 mins

  • Yields: 6 burgers


6 hamburger patties (fresh raw flat ones approx. the size of your palm from the butcher department of your grocery store. Another option is to flatten down some ready made rissoles)

½ - 1 small onion, sliced

3 large mushrooms, sliced

6T Smoky BBQ sauce

6 cheese slices

To serve: Burger rolls and green salad leaves


1Using a non stick slow cooker (or baking paper on a ceramic bowl) lay down the 6 raw burger patties

2Top each with a spoon of sauce and then the onion and mushroom slices

3Cook on HIGH for 2hrs with tea towel trick in place (make sure that in your cooker the meat is cooked through in this time)

4Top each one with a slice of cheese and cook for additional 15mins to melt cheese

5Using an egg flip carefully lift each topped burger pattie (it all stays together thanks to the cheese) and place it on a hamburger roll.

6Top with salad leaves and serve!


1Great to wrap for lunches, picnics or even easy meals at sports games

2Easy to adapt toppings, eg we leave mushrooms out of our kids ones but add extra on ours!

So easy for fuss free burgers ❤

Burger game changer! Usually for burgers with the lot that’s 3 pans going simultaneously. Eggs, bacon, onion, burgers. I layered the burgers with pickles, onion relish, tomato and bacon. 15 min prior, the cheese. Chips in oven so baking tray “fried” eggs to top them off. So easy! This is genius!

Game changer! Burgers with the lot are usually 3 pans by the time I get bacon, eggs, onions and burgers cooking simultaneously. This is actual genius 😅
Stacked burgers with onion relish, pickles, tomato and bacon, cheese the last 15 mins. Then just oven on for chips and baking tray “fried” eggs to top 👌 easiest ever burgers with the lot!
