Quorn & Mozzarella Burgers - Recipe

Evan has been a vegetarian since birth and I love him trying new foods as he is incredibly fussy and doesn't like new things!

I often just make something and hope that he will be in the mood to give it a go and thankfully he just loves the burgers that I make.

I thought I would put the recipe up and you can try them for yourselves!





Ingredients

500g Quorn mince
1 onion
1 tsp garlic paste
3 eggs
90g breadcrumbs
1 tsp veg oil
Oxo cube (for meat eaters)
240g Mozzarella

Place the mince in a large saucepan and cover with water, add salt and pepper (and oxo cube if you are using it) and bring to the boil. Strain and set aside.

Chop the onion finely.

Heat the tsp of oil in a large frying pan and add the onion, at this point if you like you could add finely chopped peppers/chillies and any herbs you may like. You can also season a little more at this point.



Stir for 3-4 mins then add the mince. Stirring all the time cook for a further 5 mins. Let COOL enough to handle.

In a bowl place the breadcrumbs.
Beat the eggs.

Add the mince mix into the breadcrumbs mix and then add the beaten eggs.

Mix well.

chop the mozzarella into cm size cubes (or if like me just tear into bite size pieces) then add to the mix, mix well.




Now the messy bit, the mix should hold together in a ball of you squidge it together in your hands, if it is too dry add a VERY SMALL amount of water until it does bind.

This makes 8 large burgers.

I made rectangles as you can see; as I had that shape roll (and an excuse to pig out!) I also added a large piece of mozzarella inside the patty for extra cheesy goodness!

Fry in a saucepan turning once; browning on each side.

Served with Mushrooms and chunky chips!





*If you find they break up when in the pan try wrapping in cling film and putting in the fridge for at least 30 mins before cooking.




Yummy :)
