Saturday Night Burgers

photo 2 photo 3

It was burger night in our house tonight and EVERYONE was happy! I had to whip up the BBQ sauce first (Please see that recipe before beginning this one) but then the meal was very quick and easy. We tend to serve our burger patties in lettuce cups (iceberg works best for this), with a side salad, and either a jacket potato, hot chips or crisps/chips.

Ingredients:

  •  500g beef mince
  • 1/4 cup rice crumbs
  • 1 egg replaced (I mixed 1 portion of  ‘no-egg’)
  • 1 Tb of my BBQ sauce (see other post)
  • A sprinkle of garlic granules and onion flakes
  • A sprinkle of suitable dried herbs (oregano is safe for us all so I used that)
  • Salt & pepper to taste (I use Himalayan salt)

Method:

  1. Place mince and all ingredients into a mixing bowl (I mix up the ‘no-egg’ before adding to the mix)
  2. Using your clean hands, mix all the mixture together until well combined
  3. Divide the mixture up into six medium sized portions
  4. Form a ball with each portion and mould it into a pattie shape
  5. Place the patties on a plate and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (I find this helps them retain their shape during cooking)
  6. Cook the patties in an oiled frying pan, electric frying pan, or on the BBQ
  7. Serve with a drizzle of the BBQ sauce
  8. Refrigerate any leftover patties – they are great as leftovers or chopped up cold in salads the next day

If you give this recipe a try please let me know how it turns out, I’m happy to troubleshoot or discuss how you could substitute these ingredients if some of the ones I’ve used aren’t suitable to your family’s sensitivities.
