Home-made Burgers


This is the recipe from the Baby Led Weaning Book I mentioned in a previous post.  It’s supposed to serve 2 adults and 1 baby.  We got 4 good sized burgers from it.

500g lean minced(ground)beef

1 small onion

1 egg, beaten

1 tsp Dijon mustard (optional)

1 tbsp chopped fresh parlsey or coriander (optional)-we added cracked black pepper and a bit of chilli powder

oil for frying (if needed)

Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly.  Shape the mixture into balls about the size of tennis balls(flouring or wetting your hands will help to stop it sticking), then flatten them into burgers, making sure they are roughly the same thickness.  If you have time, cover the burgers and put them in the fridge to firm up for an hour or so(or until you are ready to cook them).

Heat a griddle or frying pan, with oil if needed, and fry the burgers for 5-8 minutes on each side, pressing them down if griddling, until cooked through.  Serve warm.
