Frugal "Hamburgers"

  • 1/2 lb mince (ground meat)
  • 1/2 lb lentils and rice
  • 1 cup (1/2 lb) mashed potato
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup grated cheese
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree (tomato paste)
  • 2 tsps basil
  • a tiny bit of chilli powder (depending on your taste)

  • Lard a baking tray or roasting tin (I use a roasting tin because it has a lid so saves using aluminium foil to cover).
  • Put all ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Mix thoroughly - this is best done with your hands.
  • Use your hands to shape into about eight "burgers" and place in roasting tin (or baking tray).
  • If using a baking tray, cover with foil.
  • Cook at 350F/GM4 for 45-60 minutes.

Very interesting recipe Susan. I'll have to give it a try. Most frugal burger type recipes are all vegetarian. I like that this one has some meat (My sister is vegan but I just like meat to much).

I assume that is 1/2 pound of already cooked lentils and rice. Correct.

Have a great day.
Deeny :-)

Southern Mom and Deeny - you'll have to let me know how you get on with them.

Deeny, yes it is already cooked lentils and rice.
