10 large burgers
- 2 pounds ground beef
- 1/2 cup cornflake crumbs
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 2 tablespoons pesto
- 2 eggs
- 1 carrot, finely grated
- 10 slices cheese
- 4 ounces mixed lettuce leaves
- 10 hamburger buns
Place beef, cornflake crumbs, tomato paste, pesto, eggs and carrot in a bowl and mix well to combine.
If the mixture is a bit dry and not holding together, add a bit of cold water.
Divide mixture into 10 heaps and squish into hamburger shapes.
Heat a non-stick frying pan to a medium-high heat and cook burgers for about 5 minutes each side or until cooked through.
Slice buns in half, top with lettuce, then cheese, then burger and your sauce of choice.
- Replace the cornflake crumbs with breadcrumbs if you prefer – the crumbs keep moisture in the hamburgers.
- Add a finely chopped onion if your family can cope with that!
