Currently I have some free time on my hands, while I job hunt for full time work now that I have finished university forever (YAY) I can start with some more recipes and things I've been getting up to, food wise!
Mum got some bread rolls out for lunch, forgetting we had leftovers to eat up, so I wanted to do something with them for dinner while they were still fresh. I decided to make hamburgers. Never mind that last night we had homemade pizza - homemade takeaways are THE BEST, right?! Can never have it too often if it's homemade, with good quality ingredients!
This is merely a recipe for the meat patties, as opposed to the whole burger, because I figure you are all smart enough to ad-lib there, with salads and sauces and such. The world is your oyster, try anything! It's pretty hard to make a bad burger combination.
500g mince meat
1 tsp beef stock powder dissolved in 1/4 cup water
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tbsp tomato sauce
1 egg (lightly beaten)
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic
|A horrible photo, I can't work out how to rotate it|
- Essentially just mix it all together in a bowl with your hands to make sure everything gets nice and mixed up
- However, I added the egg, sauces, powders, etc. together first to make a saucey thing then mixed in the mince, so things would be evenly distributed, but just use your noggin, whatever works for you
- Separate out into how many (or few) patties you want. There are 3 of us in our family, so I made 6, for 2 burgers each. They were quite thick and big though, so could easily be made into more!
- Grill, BBQ or George Foreman until cooked all the way through!!
These came out DELICIOUS but wow so filling! Next time I shall make perhaps 12 patties, thinner, and then freeze half!! Great way to make meat go a long way though!
