Fun Dinner - Homemade hamburger

Some times my family crave for fun dinners like hamburgers and hotdogs. There are times I end up buying them outside, but I do know that it comes with colorings and processed meat and stuff which cant be good for our health. So I do try as much as possible to make meals fun but home made. These home made burgers are really quick and simple to make. And the kids more then willingly eat them all up.


To make four large patties.
350gm of minced beef(chicken, lamb, or beef...or almost any meat)
1 large minced onion
1 cup of breadcrumbs, I prefer japanese breadcrumbs
1/2 cup of shredded carrots (injecting some vegetables, you can also use spinach)
1 egg
worcertershire sauce 1 tablespoon

Olive oil for frying
4 burger buns for assembling
lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber for assembling

How to:
Mix them all together and then make them into patties.
Heat up a pan or grill, oil it with some olive oil
fry the patties for about 5 mins..or untill well done
Then assemble them. For assembling I use a little mayo, tomato ketchup or mustard and you can add more vegetables like, lettuces, cherry tomatoes or cucumbers.
You can serve this as a meal for dinner or serve with a side salad!
