2.) Add the cooked brown onion and garlic, minced beef, bread crumbs, egg, parsley, cheese, worcestershire sauce, ketchup into a large mixing bowl and combine till meat comes together but is not sticky. If its sticky add more bread crumbs but mixture should be moist.
3.) Shape the meat mixture into evenly sized burger patties. Wet your hands as you shape the meat to create the perfect shape.
4.) Place the meat burgers in a greased fry pan and cook on each side for 5-7 minutes or until cooked through. Allow to rest before serving to keep the juices in.

3.) Allow to cool. The relish will keep in an airtight jar for up to a week.
