Recipe – Ground Beef Veggie Burgers

I’ve made something like this before and my family really enjoyed these – they are moister than a regular hamburger and certainly larger due to the enormous amount of vegetables stuffed into them. Here’s how we made them last night.

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 3 cups diced onion
  • 3 cups of yellow squash finely julienned in a mandoline
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons of paprika
  • 3 eggs
All of the above was mixed together in a bowl then formed into 6 patties. I was afraid to try and fry them because while the egg helps to keep all the ingredients together, I’ve had problems flipping them without breaking, so they went into a 400 degree oven for 30-40 minutes. When done, the internal temp was around 160 and the tops were just a little bit browned.
As these came out most awesome, I will certainly make them again – and as the kid likes to help (aka ‘slave labor’), I’ll hit her up to do the messy mixing work.
