Feast your eyes on the finest italian style cheeseburgers with coleslaw cups! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 150°C/gas 2 and put a griddle pan over a high heat.
  2. Mix the minced beef and mustard in a large bowl. Try not to crush it with your hands too much as this makes the burgers too dense. Season well with salt and pepper and divide the mix into four. Shape into burgers about 2.5cm thick. Put the burgers onto the griddle pan and cook for 4 minutes on one side.
  3. Meanwhile, put the buns on a baking tray and pop them into the oven to warm through.
  4. Mix together the wholegrain mustard, mayonnaise and lemon juice in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add the carrots and fennel to the mayonnaise mixture. Stir everything together and set aside.
  5. Turn the burgers over and top each one with a slice of mozzarella. Continue to cook for 3 minutes.
  6. Mix the cabbage into the coleslaw mixture. Break the baby gem lettuce into individual leaves and fill each one with some of the coleslaw.
  7. Remove the buns from the oven and cut in half. Place a burger on the bottom half of each bun, then top the melted mozzarella with some tomato chutney and serve alongside the lettuce coleslaw cups.

Once you’re done, simply sit back and enjoy your italian style cheeseburgers with coleslaw cups and don’t forget to check out other great authentic Italian recipes including great antipasti recipes, Italian pasta recipes, Italian soup recipes, Italian beef dishes and authentic pizza recipes.

Gnocchetti sardi con vongole, noci, peperoncino e bottargaSardinian Pasta Shells with Clams, Walnuts, Chilli & Bottarga

This recipe is often served on the coast in northern Sardinia and it’s one of my favourites. In fact, I’ve started to make this dish at home at least once a week as I love the flavours so much. Try to get hold of bottarga if you can – it really will enhance the dish – and please don’t be tempted to sprinkle cheese on top, as it will fight with the flavours of the seafood.

Orecchiette con cime di rapeOrecchiette with Broccoli, Garlic and Chilli

I grew up eating orecchiette, the typical pasta shape of Puglia. The name translates as 'little ears', which is exactly what the shape resembles. Italian grandmothers traditionally make the pasta by hand, shaping it while having a good old chat. The hollow in the little ears perfectly entraps whatever sauce they are served with.

Here’s a great alternative to the traditional British bangers and mash. Italian sausages tend to be highly flavoured with herbs and spices, such as fennel, which adds a perfect boost of flavour to this recipe.

Tiramisu con ciliegeCherry Tiramisu

If I asked you to name one Italian dessert , I guarantee the vast majority would say tiramisu. However, not everybody likes the coffee that the biscuits are traditionally soaked in, so my version – inspired by a trip to the cherry orchards of Castello, where Ciro and his family grow wonderful fruit – uses liqueur instead. If making this for children, just leave out the booze and cook the cherries...

Rigatoni all’Arrabbiata con SalmoneRigatoni in Spicy Tomato and Salmon Sauce

Arrabbiata means 'angry' in Italian, and I guess they used it to name this dish because of the heat of the chilli peppers in the sauce. The spicier the better for me, but be careful in Italy when asking for this traditional dish to be extra spicy – they will take you at your word. In this recipe the rigatoni can be replaced with penne or any other pasta shape, if you prefer. Just get cooking –...

Torta di cioccolato e fragoleChocolate & Fresh Strawberry Cake

Italians from the south don’t bake cakes all that often but my sister Marcella makes this for me whenever I visit and I love it. The combination of moist chocolate cake and fresh strawberries is wonderful and I can never only have one slice; in fact there is always a fight over who gets the last piece (I normally win!) The cake is also fantastico made with raspberries!
