Before you start

Preheat the oven to 175℃ | Large mixing bowl | Chopping board | Small pan | Microwave | Large pan | Frying pan

To make the dough

  • Add the flour and salt to a large bowl and mix well. Mix the yeast, sugar, olive oil with the lukewarm water and leave for a minute or so
  • Create a hole in the middle of the flour and gradually add the liquid until you have a dough
  • Tip the dough onto a floured chopping board. Knead for a few minutes until the dough is springy
  • Transfer back to the bowl and cover with a damp cloth for about an hour. The dough should have doubled in size
  • Transfer back onto the floured chopping board and knead again to knock back
  • Divide the dough in half then half again until you get 18 small pieces of dough

To make the onions

  • Add the olive oil and red onion to a small pan cook on a low heat for 20 minutes until soft and caramelised

To make the burgers

  • Microwave the veggie sausages for 2 minutes and allow to cool
  • Add them to a large bowl with the garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mash together to form a mixture
  • Take small amounts of the mixture and use your hands to form into mini patties
  • Add all the burgers to a large pan with the oil. Fry on a medium heat for 2 minutes on each side, then set aside

To make the cheese burger dough balls

  • Form the dough into a small circle. Firstly add a small piece of cheese, then a little fried onion, then the mini burger and another slice of cheese
  • Fold in the corners of the dough and squeeze together to seal
  • Transfer to a baking tray with a little olive oil in the bottom
  • Continue the process until all 18 are formed and in the baking tray and are nestled close to each other
  • Brush a little olive oil over the top then sprinkle with sesame seeds

Cook and serve

  • Bake at 175℃ for 25 minutes until cooked and golden on top
  • Allow to cool a little then dip into ketchup
