Burger Recipe - Annabel's Yummy Burgers
Making your own Healthy Junk Food is one way to encourage fussy eaters to eat better-quality food. Adding tomato chutney to burgers gives them a delicious flavour. My children love this burger recipe. Serve them on their own or in a bun with some salad.
Red meat provides the best source of iron and iron deficiency is the commonest nutritional deficiency in children A lack of iron will not only make your child feel tired but can also lower resistance to infection.
1 medium red onion, chopped
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.
If you want a really smooth texture, pulse all the ingredients together in the food procesor for a few seconds. If not, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and season to taste. 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.
