    – Select the Burger programme on the Tefal OptiGrill. Place the patties on the grill and cook until they reach your preferred level of doneness. The OptiGrill’s colour-coded cooking level indicator will alert you when your meat is rare, medium, or well done.

    4. Prepare the Buns and Toppings:

    – While the patties are grilling, prepare the burger buns. Brush the lower halves of the buns with salsa sauce.
    – Place a layer of salad on top of the salsa.
    – Slice the tomato and set aside.

    5. Assemble the Burgers:

    – Once the patties are done, place them on top of the salad on the prepared buns.
    – Add one or two slices of tomato on top of the patties.
    – Crumble the grilled bacon and some nachos, then sprinkle them over the tomato slices.
    – Drizzle some more salsa sauce over the crumbled bacon and nachos.
    – Cap the burgers with the top halves of the buns.

    The Tefal OptiGrill is equipped with advanced features that make grilling easy and precise. Its colour-coded cooking level indicator ensures perfect grilling results, monitoring progress and alerting you when your meat is rare, medium, or well done. Additionally, the 9 Automatic Sensor Cooking technology identifies the thickness of your meat, adjusting the cooking time and temperature accordingly. With pre-set programmes for Red Meat, Burger, Poultry, Bacon, and Fish, the OptiGrill guarantees deliciously cooked meat every time.
