Home Made Burgers in 15 Minutes

Hamburgers can be very good - depends on how it is prepared, the toppings and what we eat it with. It is still great food - protein, carbohydrates and vitamins all tucked in together. Therefore home made burgers are best - keeps the family happy and healthy! Here is the how and only 15 minutes to prepare.

Hamburgers can be unhealthy depending on the toppings, but there are ways to make it tasty and healthy...

The calory and fat content plus the quality of meat in the burger meats we buy from the supermarkets can be fantastically high and detrimental to health.

Recipe for homemade burgers

1/2  kilogram of Minced chicken (or pork or beef)
1 egg
1 to 2 tablespoons of corn flour (this is to hold everything together)
salt to taste
black pepper
onion leaves sliced
carrot minced
onion,ginger and garlic minced fine

mix everything. Do you notice that I have added carrots - great way to get kids to eat some vegetables. My kids find it so hard to eat vegetables. Both my mum and I are learning ingenious ways to camouflage the veges!

Use a non stick pan. Place a little oil (yes - that's it. very little)

Get the bread, salads, onions, tomatoes, cucumber, olives. Avoid mayonnaise and such dressings.

And there you have it. A great home made burger.

Happy Teaching and cooking!
