2 lean beef burger patties
2 raclette cheese slices
40 g Farmer’s Deli black forest ham

¼ mini cabbage; shredded
6 mangetout; thinly sliced
2 radishes; thinly sliced
2 tbsp. (30 ml) mayonnaise

1 small handful of iceberg lettuce; roughly torn
1 tbsp. (15 ml) olive oil

Squeeze of lemon juice


For the slaw:
1. Place the cabbage, mangetout, radishes and lettuce into a bowl and pour the olive oil, lemon juice and honey over.
2. Season with a little salt and pepper and mix to combine. Set aside.

For the burger patties:
1. Preheat the oven to grill.
2. Heat a grill pan to medium heat and grill each half of the hot cross buns. Set aside.
3. Lightly brush each burger patty with a little extra olive oil and grill for 2–3 minutes on each side or until each one is just cooked through.

To assemble:
1. Spread a little mayonnaise onto the bottom half of each hot cross bun and top with a little slaw.

3. Cover with the other halved hot cross bun and enjoy.
