Healthy Hamburger Recipe
One way round getting fussy children to eat is to make your own ‘Healthy Junk Food'. Often the quality of hamburgers, chicken nuggets and pizza you buy in the supermarket is not good but by making your own you can choose good quality ingredients and even sneak in some vegetables.
Why not make you own healthy burgers using good quality minced beef and no nasties. The delicious hamburger recipe can be made with beef, lamb or chicken. You can serve the burgers in a toasted bun, with extras like lettuce, pickled cucumber, sliced tomato, thinly sliced sautéed onion and maybe a little ketchup or mustard.
450g/1lb lean minced beef or lamb
Fry the onion and red pepper in the vegetable oil for about 5 minutes o until softened. In a mixing bowl, combine the sautéed onion together with all the other ingredients. With floured hands, form 10 burgers.
Fry the burgers in a little hot oil in a large shallow frying pan on a high heat to brown and seal then lower the heat and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Alternatively, brush the griddle and cook for about 4 minutes each side or until browned and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining burgers.
