Recipe: The Humble Hamburger

Written by Kate Bullen, APD

It has been a while since I wrote a blog post - sorry to anyone who might have been missing them! Unfortunately had a chest infection, but am back and feeling much better!

Hamburgers are something that we make at home quite often. They are a great healthy meal, and fantastic meal that can be eaten earlier by the kids, and then a bit later by the adults. Also great as leftovers.

My husband has perfected the hamburger patty - it is all about the flavour. So here is our version of a burger patty, which was based on a recipe by Gordon Ramsay. You can halve the recipe because 1kg of beef does make a huge amount of burger patties!

1kg minced beef
1/2 cup of garlic, chopped (I know this seems a lot - but it is all about the flavour!)
4 tablespoons sundried tomatoes, diced
2 finely chopped red onions (wear your sunnies to stop the tears!)
4 teaspoons dijon or honey mustard
2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
4 teaspoons tomato sauce
1-2 egg yolks only

Mix up and make into hamburger patties. Grill in a non stick pan, or on the bbq.

We like to serve with avocado spread on toasted bread, caramelised onions, tomato, lettuce, rocket, grilled mushrooms, baby spinach, sliced beetroot, grated carrot and cucumber.
