My Sandwich Burger

This is one of my quick and healthy sandwich for lunch. It is simple, easy and convenience, especially if you have a little one around the house.

You could add grated vegetable like carrot or zucchini in the mince mixture or some chopped mushrooms is great as well for those extra flavor.  I don’t have all those ingredients handy in my fridge, so I mix everything I had.

My little tips to retain your burger patties shape are:

  • Try to squeeze the mince mixture gently while shaping them. Patting both sides with palm of your hands could help as well.
  • Refrigerate the burger patties in the fridge for at least half an hour before cooking them, so that they could sit for a while.
  • When cooking the patties, do not do so many toss and turn. Let them cook at least 5 minutes on each sides. When they are more sturdy, you could then turning them on the other side.
  • When making a thicker burger patties like mine, just keep in mind that the inside of the patties might still be medium rare. You could bake them in the oven for a while to make sure it is well done.
