Annabel's Yummy Burgers -- healthy junk food

by Annabel (Mary)

Making your own healthy junk food is one way to encourage fussy eaters to eat better quality food. Adding tomato chutney to burgers gives them a delicious flavor. My children love this burger recipe. Serve them on their own or in a bun with some salad.

1 medium red onion, chopped
3 tablespoon sunflower oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/2 teaspoon thyme leaves
2 slices white bread, crusts removed
9 ounce ground beef
3 tablespoon tomato chutney (or you could use tomato relish)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon flour, for dusting

  1. Put the onion in 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil for 5 or 6 minutes until soft

  2. Add the garlic and thyme and cook for 1 minute

  3. Tear the bread into pieces and put in a food processor with the onion mixture and blitz together

  4. If you want a really smooth texture, pulse all the ingredients together in the food procesor for a few seconds. If not, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and season to taste

  5. Form the mixture into 6 burgers using flour-dusted hands

  6. Fry the burgers in the remaining oil for 4 to 5 minutes on each side over a medium-to-low heat. If you fry over a high heat, because of the sugar in the tomato chutney the burgers have a tendency to burn. Alternatively cook the burgers under a pre-heated grill

  7. Serve in a bun with lettuce and tomato

If you can't beat them, join them. Make some healthy junk food now. Recipe source:
