Halloween burgers for your children when they come home from Trick or Treating.
My new Fussy Eaters Recipe Book shows you how to make your own healthy junk food to encourage fussy eaters to eat better-quality food. My children love these halloween burgers, adding tomato chutney to burgers gives them a delicious flavour. Serve them on their own or in a bun with some salad.
- 1 medium red onion, chopped
- 3 tbsp sunflower oil
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1/2 tsp thyme leaves
- 2 slices white bread, crusts removed
- 250 g (9 oz) minced beef
- 3 tbsp tomato chutney (or you could use tomato relish)
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1–2 tbsp flour, for dusting
Sauté the onion in 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil for 5–6 minutes until soft. Add the garlic and thyme and cook for 1 minute. Tear the bread into pieces and put in a food processor with the onion mixture and blitz together.
Add the mince and form the mixture into 6 burgers using flour-dusted hands.
Fry the burgers in the remaining oil for 4 to 5 minutes on each side over a medium-to-low heat. If you fry over a high heat, because of the sugar in the tomato chutney the burgers have a tendency to burn. Alternatively cook the burgers under a pre-heated grill. Serve in a bun with lettuce and tomato.

Suitable for freezing. If you want to freeze burgers it’s best to do so uncooked on a tray lined with cling film. When frozen, wrap them individually in cling film. You can then remove them individually and use as many as you like.
