We Macedonians love burgers and all variations of  minced meat. Especially when we prepare it on a grill. This burger recipe is great for grilling, though you can also fry burgers on just a little oil on a grilling pan. I suggest you to use a little harder cheese that softens, but doesn't melt too much, so it won't go away from the burgers.

- 300 g of minced pork meat
- 300 g of minced beef
- 1 chopped head onion
- 1 chopped clove of garlic
- 1 teaspoon Bukovska pepper
- 50 g smoked cubed bacon
- about 1 flat tbs salt

- black pepper
- 70 ml mineral sparkling water or water mixed with 1/2 tbs baking soda
- 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil

- about 100 g grated cheese 

  1. Add all ingredients (except for the cheese) in a deeper bowl and mix well. Knead with your hand if necessary. Leave thus prepared mixture in the fridge for several hours.
  2. Then, on an oiled surface, take from the mixture, put cheese in the middle, cоver with meat mixture and shape the burger.
  3. Fry on a just a little oil on a frying pan on one side until it has a nice color, then flip over and bake slightly shorter on the other. It's the best to grill burgers on a coal grill.
  4. Serve burgers with fries, salad, onions.
