The Humble Burger Patty

 

The many uses of the humble burger patty

 

One of the most versatile family dinners would have to be burger patties. Whether they’re made with beef, pork, lamb or chicken, the humble hamburger can be transformed into an infinite number of meals.

Below are a few ideas to get you started. We’re focusing on chicken burgers this week, but you can make the below with any type of burger meat.

 

HAMBURGERS

Actually cook hamburgers or sliders (mini burgers) by splitting the patty into two portions. These are great for kids meals and party food, where a little go a long way.

Cook the slider on the BBQ for one or two minutes on the first side, then a 30 seconds to a minute on the second side. Serve in dinner rolls, with lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, pickles and caramelised leak. 

 

MEATBALLS

Roll your hamburger patties into balls and cook in the pan until browned on all side. Add your tomato based pasta sauce and simmer on a low heat. Cook spaghetti pasta, drain and then serve with meatballs and sauce. You can make mini meatballs by poritioning each burger in half and rolling into smaller balls.

 

PIZZA TOPPING

Crumble patty in the fry pan, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Once cooked add to pizza as a delicious topping. The spices and herbs in the patty will add a nice depth of flavour to the pizza.

 

SOUP ADD IN

Take your soup to the next level by adding the crumbled mice patty to it. Like the pizza topping, cook in the pan and add to the soup.

 

WRAPS AND SANDWICHES

Cook as a burger or break up and cook in the pan, serve immediately or place in the fridge for the next day. This is a great idea for a quick breakfast with left over patties. Reheat and sandwich between an English muffin with tomato relish for a breakfast on the go.
