Healthier Hamburgers

During our last freezer cooking session, my husband concocted these healthier hamburgers.  We froze 10 patties, and my son even took one in his lunch right before Halloween.  I thought my husband was crazy when he put shredded carrots in these, but to my surprise, you can’t even taste the carrot.  Just one more sly way to get veggies in the kids.

 

 

Healthier Hamburgers

1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. turkey burger
1 carrot, peeled and shredded finely
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1 tbsp. dried parsley
1 tbsp. Worchestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all in a bowl and mix well.  Form into 8 to 10 patties.

We cook these on our George Foreman grill for 5 minutes on the first side and 3 to 4 minutes on the other side, until juices run clear.  Top with cheese if desired.

To freeze, stack patties, uncooked, with parchment or wax paper between each.
