Tasty burger recipes

It is always a tremendous challenge to find a healthy meal that children will love. My children were brought up on healthy food, but for some reason just when I think I’ve figured out what they love, it changes…so they really keep me guessing.

However, there is one thing that I know that they will always enjoy, and that is our homemade burgers! We prefer to make my own because that way we know what is going into them and I think it is great that we can make this family favourite into a healthy meal that is relatively quick and easy to prepare.

Warren’s Beef Burgers

Beef burgers are one of my husband, Warren’s favourite foods, so he created this tasty recipe much to my children’s delight.

Makes 6 medium sized burgers
Ingredients:

  • 500g lean ground beef (mince)
  • 1 onion, very finely chopped or blended
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 c (80ml) rolled oats
  • 5ml salt
  • 5ml (1t) dried mixed herbs
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 20ml olive oil
Instructions:

1. Put all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl and stir until combined.
2. Shape into 6 burgers.
3. Pour the olive oil into a non-stick pan and then arrange the burgers carefully in the pan.
4. Put a lid on the pan and cook over a gentle heat, turning once until almost cooked.
5. Take the lid off the pan and allow the juices to cook away and the burgers to brown slightly.
6. Serve them on a whole-wheat roll with tomato and lettuce – or whatever you prefer.

Cook’s Notes:

  • You could oven bake these burgers at 180ºC (350ºF) for about 35 minutes or until done.
  • Steam frying the burgers with a lid on the pan is a much healthier way of cooking, as it uses less oil and a gentler heat. You could choose to try them in a pan without a lid if you prefer.


Tomatoey Beef Burgers

These very simple, quick and easy to make burgers contain tomato paste which gives them a wonderful flavour and adds some extra vitamins and minerals too.

You could also use this recipe to make meat balls which are great baked in the oven.
