Welsh Beef Burger (packed with hidden veggies!)


Packed with flavour but also hidden veggies for your fussy eaters!

  1. Place the mince and vegetables into a bowl, add the herbs and seasoning. Mix.
  2. Stir through the tomato ketchup and ½ the egg. Add more egg if required – you want a soft but firm consistency so the burgers hold their shape. (if a bit too sticky add some breadcrumbs).
  3. Shape into burgers and chill for 15 minutes.
  4. These can be cooked on the solid plate of a BBQ, oven or grill – approximately 15-20 minutes depending on thickness. Top with cheese during last minute of cooking. Ensure thoroughly cooked in the centre.
