Healthy kids burgers recipe
These delicious kid-sized hamburgers are healthy and full of flavour. Skip the fast food salt, excess fat and fairy floss bread and make these for your little ones.
For the patties:
- 500g lean beef mince
- 1 free-range egg, lightly beaten
- 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup whole rolled oats, pulsed into meal
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds, pulsed into meal
- 8 small sourdough buns
- 1 cup spinach leaves
- 2 tomatoes, sliced
- tomato sauce
Place patties ingredients into a bowl and combine well.
Roll 1/4 cup measures into small patties.
Cook on a hot grill for 3-4 minutes and then turn and grill until cooked through.
Leave to rest for 3-4 minutes and then assemble burgers with spinach leaves on the bottom, the cooked patties, tomato slices and sauce.
- There’s room for a few vegetables on the burger. You could also replace the usual store bought deep fried hot chips with homemade baked potato or sweet potato chips, a handful of steamed frozen corn and peas or a little side salad.
- Feel free to use chicken mince instead of beef, perhaps switching to seeded mustard rather than Dijon.
