Recipe: Homemade Garlic and Herb Burger

Since this has been a regular in my son's bento, I decided to share my recipe that made this so tasty and replaced their cravings for Mc Donalds' burgers.

  • 1 lb ground meat (pork, beef or chicken)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tsp garlic, chopped
  • a sprig of fresh thymes
  • a sprig of fresh oregano
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • carrots, grated (optional)
  • 1 small bell pepper, chopped (optional)
  • 3 tbsp ketchup or tomato paste
  • dash of salt and pepper to taste.
  1. Mix all ingredients.
  2. Scoop out a batter and form into a ball.  Flatten and set aside.  Keep doing it until the entire batter are used up.
  3. Heat skillet or grill. Brush or spray with cooking oil. 
  4. Fry/Grill the burger patties till golden brown.
  5. Serve warm on a bun with lettuce, cheese, dill, tomatoes, onions, and ketchup.
Enjoy your burger and eat in moderation.
