Greg's Hamburgers


500g lean minced meat (beef, lamb, veal, pork, chicken, kangaroo or a combination) 1 teaspoon curry powder
2 medium carrots ½ teaspoon mixed herbs
2 medium onions 1 cup breadcrumbs
2 medium potatoes

½ cup tomato sauce

2 medium zucchini 2 eggs
2 cloves garlic or 2 teaspoons minced garlic Oil for cooking


  1. Peel and grate the carrots and potatoes

  2. Grate the zucchini

  3. Finely chop the onions

  4. Put all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix them thoroughly – I use my hand (washed)

  5. Make the mixture into 200g patties and cook on the BBQ or in a pan (flatten them to about 1cm in thickness) for 5/6 minutes each side.

  6. Serve in a normal hamburger style roll with your sauce and salad of choice. Our resident vegetarian likes them with plain yogurt, sweet chili sauce and salad. Another serving suggestion is serve on a plate with gravy, mashed spuds and assorted vegetables.

  7. Makes 8-10 patties.

  8. Note; - for a great vegetarian burger just leave the meat out – I make the vegetable mix first and make a couple of vegi-burgers for my daughter then add the meat.
