Southern Burgers is a recipe I originally found online but have since changed it so much they are now Ranch Burgers and I’m pretty sure I can call it my own. I like to add veggies into our meals as much as possible, so this has some fun veggie additions!
1 lb. lean hamburger
1 large handful of Spinach
6 baby carrots
1 piece of wheat bread or 1/2 c. instant oats
3 T Ranch
You’re favorite spices, I use minced onions and all seasoning salt and a little parsley
Step 1: Rinse and cut up spinach and grate carrots. If you have picky eaters you are trying to hide veggies from you might want to put them in a food processor or blender and puree them.
Step 2: Put raw lean hamburger, spinach, carrots and bread (torn into small pieces)/oats in bowl.
Step 3: Add egg, spices and ranch to bowl.
Step 4: Mix together
Step 5: Form into patties and cook until completely cooked. You have a yummy, healthier burger! This makes about 5 medium sized burgers.
Step 6: Don’t forget to dab burgers with paper towels to get the extra grease off them. Also, a little warning, these burgers can fall apart so form into firm patties. I do find that leaving the egg out helps them stick together better.
