Bunless Burgers

We’ve always made our burger patties ourselves and now that we are feeding a cute little man with a virgin tummy we are being eve more careful with our ingredients than ever before. I really thought our burgers would have to be for adults only as we usually use tomato sauce and BBQ sauce in our recipe, not to mention salt and pepper. I still wanted them to have some flavour and not be to dry or just fall apart when cooking and so I concocted this recipe.

Recipe:
500g mince
3 tbs diced tomato (we just used some from a can)
2 tbs breadcrumbs
1 tbs mixed herbs
1 tbs rosemary (I love rosemary with meat)
1 egg

Mix it all in a bowl, I find using my hands really works it in well. For into small balls and place into a hot pan. Flatten with a spatula and fry till brown on both sides. For Mr B I noticed if it was a little bit blackened it would be to hard for him to eat so try not to over cook it.

Rice Pasta with Bolognese sauce.

One of our definite go-to meals is Spag-Bol. My husband loves it, it’s easy to make and it’s fun and messy for Mr B.

Obviously you can just make this however you like, but here is our recipe for those of you who want it 🙂

Bolognese:

1 onion
2 cloves of garlic
590g mince
1cup of peas and sweetcorn
1cup courgettes
1cup mushrooms
1can diced tomatoes
1tsp rosemary

Dice up your onion and garlic and fry it with the rosemary till cooked through.
Add your mince and brown it.
Add all your veggies and the can of tomatoes and simmer until they are all cooked through.

Serve on a bed of rice pasta. We only use rice pasta in our home because we are trying to eliminate any gluten based products from our diet but of course any pasta will do.
