Kid Burgers


These make look like the usual burger but I have tried to add only healthy things and chose baking or grilling over frying to get less fat. My son will never eat onions but I have found that grinding red onions which have a sweeter taste into his food goes unnoticed. Actually you can get away with grinding most healthy things into kids food for an added boost. Making all the ‘junk’ that kids like in a healthy way not only taste better but it really pays off in the long run. Buy rolls in your grocery store for the mini burger buns.

If you plan on freezing like I do after I make one for lunch then just shape the patties and wrap in a small packet of aluminum foil. I then add 3 packs per freezer bag and freeze until needed.

1 medium red onion, chopped
2 garlic clove, smashed
1 medium carrot, grated
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 slices white bread, crust removed
1        pound lean ground beef

1.      In a 9-inch skillet on medium heat add olive oil. Add onion, garlic, carrot and thyme. Cook until under is tender about 3 minutes.

2.      In a food processor add onion mixture and bread. Pulse until well combined. In a bowl add beef and mixture. With hands combine well until through mixed.

3.      Place burgers on a hot grill. Cook until no longer pink about 5 minutes on each side.

Yields: 8-9 mini burgers

    Amna thank you lol :)

    Zelia its really good if they do not like all that junk actually. Talal just started eating burgers about a month ago and he will only take it plain. I have been really worried about the foods he will and will not eat so its been LOTS of time in the kitchen for me.
