Meatloaf Burgers

These burgers are a meal in themselves.  Top with your favorite veggies or serve with a salad.

Ingredients:

  • 2lb ground beef
  • 1/2 small onion, minced
  • 1/2 bell pepper, minced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4c Parmesan cheese, dry grated
  • stevia equivalent to 2T sugar
  • 1/2c Splenda-sweetened ketchup (I use Heinz)
  • 1/4t dry mustard
  • sea salt & pepper to taste

Procedure:

  1. In a large bowl, beat egg.
  2. Add all other ingredients except ground beef. Combine thoroughly.
  3. Add ground beef to veggie mixture and mix with your hands. You’ll end up with a slightly wet mix when all ingredients are well-incorporated.
  4. Form mix into approximately 10 burgers. Grill or fry until the burgers reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

Notes:

I like to make a large batch of these burgers and put them on foil-lined baking sheets.  I freeze them on the baking sheets, and when they’re frozen solid, I remove them from the trays and place them in plastic bags.  I’ve also made an excellent variation with half beef and half Italian sausage.
