Mini beef and cambozola burgers on crostini

Looking for a little nibble with more dash than cash?, then here's an idea. Cambozola is a cheese that's a mix of French triple cream cheese and Gorgonzola from Italy. Any soft rind blue cheese will be ideal to use here.


  • 500 grams lean beef mince
  • 1 egg
  • 3-4 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 large gherkins, very finely chopped
  • ½ cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 125 grams Cambozola cheese, diced

To serve

  • 20-24 crostini
  • 125 grams cambozola cheese
  • rocket leaves
  • 1 cup onion marmalade


  1. Mix together the mince, egg, spring onions, Cambozola cheese with a good seasoning of salt and pepper. With wet hands, mould the mixture into 20-24 small even-sized meatballs. (At this stage the meatballs can be covered and refrigerated until required).
  2. Cook the meatballs under a hot grill or in a lightly oiled frying pan over a high heat for about 5-7 minutes, turning once. The meatballs should be just cooked.
  3. Arrange a leaf of rocket on a crostini and top with a slice of Cambozola cheese. Place a warm mini-burger on top and garnish with onion marmalade. Serve warm.
