Homemade Hamburgers

Serves 4

1. 400-500 g ground beef
2. 4 wholemeal burger buns
3. 4 slices of cheddar cheese
4. 2 iceberg lettuce leaves thinly shredded
5. 2 tomatoes thinly sliced
6. 1/2 red pepper bell sliced in ring
7. 1/2 onion sliced in ring
8. 1/4 cucumber sliced thin
9. Ketchup
10. Butter
11. 1 TBS cooking oil

Marinade for the beef patties:
1. 1 clove garlic pressed
2. 1/2 onion minced or blended
3. 1 TBS white wholewheat flour or 1 tsp cornstarch - adding corn starch helps the beef patties to be tender and not dry after frying
4. 1 TBS soy sauce (optional)
5. 1 egg (optional)
6. 50 ml fresh milk (optional)
7. Salt & pepper to taste
8. 1 tsp or TBS oregano, thyme, basil, dried pasley or dried wild garlic (ramsløg), or more as desired.

1. Blend in a food processor all the ingredients for the beef patties.
2. Form beef into 4 beef patties by hand.
3. Heat pan with oil, fry beef on medium-high heat for 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
4. Place cheese on each patty to melt the cheese.
5. Toast the burger buns.
6. Spread butter or chili mayonnaise on each bun.
7. Build the burger by placing lettuces, tomato, red pepper bell, onion, beef patty, cheese and cucumber on the bottom burger bun. Place top bun.

You can also add avocado in the burger.
You can serve with homemade french fries or sweet potato fries on the side.

Additional Information:
Our Little FECS requested for hamburgers for dinner tonight. Often, the most challenging part of making hamburgers is that the beef patties tend to be dry. The trick is to add corn starch to the ground beef when marinating it. That really helped to make the meat nice, tender and juicy to eat :-)

Marinade the ground beef with pressed garlic, blended or minced onion, corn starch, salt and pepper. I also added 1 TBS of soy sauce (optional)
