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.

I love recipes that require just a few good-quality ingredients and are simple to make yet really have the ‘wow factor’, such as this pasta dish with mussels. You don’t have to use the bottarga - the dish stands alone without it - but a Sardinian cook would almost certainly grate it over the top of the finished dish.

Avocado Grigliato Ripieno di Pomodori, Cipollotti, Olive e CapperiGrilled Avocado Stuffed With Tomatoes, Spring Onions, Olives & Capers

This dish is rather retro and I used to make it when I first came to London as a teenager. Make sure that the avocados are perfectly ripe and don’t use buffalo mozzarella, as it will release too much milk during cooking. Grilling the avocado makes it softer and more velvety, but don’t overcook or it will turn mushy. Serve with your favourite salad leaves.

Bombe Di VerdureItalian-Style Spring Rolls

One of my favourite oriental dishes has to be vegetable spring rolls and I make it so often at home that I had to include it in my book. It’s a fantastic dish to prepare when you have parties, because you can fry them in the afternoon and then reheat them in the oven ready for your guests. Ensure the vegetables are not too wet when putting them into the filo pastry, otherwise your spring rolls will...

Dolce di panettone e miele con frutta grigliata e ricottaPanettone & Honey Pudding with Chargrilled Fruits & Ricotta

This is my Italian version of bread and butter pudding, served with char-grilled fruits and sweetened ricotta cheese. In Italy the ricotta is very creamy and rich, and I just added honey to sweeten it, but in Britain you might like to add a few drops of vanilla extract to give depth of flavour.

Insalata di sgombro affumicato con arance e finocchiSmoked Mackerel, Orange & Fennel Salad

Oranges go perfectly with smoked mackerel, particularly the red oranges that are so abundant in Sicily. Orange and fennel are a popular combination in Sicilian cuisine, especially in the city of Palermo, and with the addition of this seductively rich-tasting fish this salad becomes the star of any antipasti table.

Torta di Pane al CioccolatoChocolate and Rum Bread & Butter Pudding

To tell you the truth I am such a big fan of bread and butter pudding that I had to create my own version of this great dish. The rum with the chocolate is absolutely divine and with a pinch of cinnamon, it's a marriage made in heaven. My only tip for this recipe is to make sure that it rests into the fridge for at least six hours before cooking – this will give you a fantastic soufflé effect when...
