Kira’s Spinach & garlic burgers.

I’m so proud of my daughter!  She created & made this recipe all on her own!  While grocery shopping today, I asked what she would like for dinner.  I figured tacos or hamburgers…. Hamburgers won out!  So we purchased our goodies & off we went.

I’m a firm believe that when children are involved in growing, selecting and cooking their food… they will see the value, understand the importance and eat more because they had a hand in the preparation.  This was definitely a great example of that… she ate everything tonight 🙂

Here is her list of ingredients:

1.25 lbs of organic lean ground beef (85% lean).  I wouldn’t go any leaner as the meat will be too dry for grilling.
1 handful of baby spinach leaves
4 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
1/2 of a medium sized onion
1 tbl of Montreal grilling hamburger seasoning
1 tsp of garlic salt
1/4 c of Panko bread crumbs
1 egg
Salt & Pepper to taste

In you food processor, blend the spinach leaves, garlic and onion until finely chopped.   Then transfer that to your mixing bowl with the paddle attachment.  Then add the remaining ingredients and blend until everything is incorporated into the meat.  Avoid over mixing.  If the meat mixture is too wet, add some additional bread crumbs.

Here is a valuable tip.  Pinch a small amount of the meat mixture in your fingers and cook it on the stove (in a small pan) until done.  Sample it to ensure the seasoning mixture is just right.  Adjust it in the main mixture accordingly and then grill all of your burgers.

Enjoy!
