Have you ever had a veggie burger? A friend introduced me to these a few years back and I think they are better than regular burgers. I make a big batch of them and put them in the freezer so they make a real easy meal. You can slap them between burger buns, rolls or bread. Any way they taste great.
Here are some cooking. I'm in the process of turning them over, but they weren't quite ready so that gave me time to grab the camera. I really like them a dark golden color on the outside so they are crispy, yet soft in the middle. Yum yum.
Basically you can use almost any vegetables you like. Here's how I make them:
- 1 onion: grated, then squeeze out as much juice as possible
- 2 large potatoes grated and juice squeezed out
- 2 cloves garlic crushed or minced very fine
- 2-3 carrots shredded
- 1 small yellow squash shredded (can be subsituted for another vegetable)
- 1 zucchini shredded (can be subsituted for another vegetable)
- 1 1/2 cups oats (or half oats, half seasoned breadcrumbs)
- 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese
- 1 egg beaten
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- a little salt for seasoning
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour for rolling patties
- cooking or veggie oil for frying
Shred and squeeze out as much juice as possible from the vegetables.
Put all ingredients except flour and oil in a glass bowl and blend together. Make sure the mixture isn't too wet. Add more breadcrumbs if it is.
Refrigerate for about 1 hour.
Form patties and roll in flour on all edges. Fry on a high heat or bake in the oven if preferred to cut down on calories. Cook until dark golden brown and crispy.
Patties may be frozen. I place them all in a bag separated by freezer paper to free-flow them. Makes a real quick delicious meal.
