Beef & Bean Burgers
These burgers are really tasty with the addition of red kidney beans - it also makes the beef go further, which is always good for your budget! I find the children prefer these burgers to all-meat varieties.
300g beef mince
half tin of red kidney beans
1 red onion, finely chopped
beef stock cube
salt & pepper
HOW TO MAKE:
Fry the onion in a little butter until soft. Allow to cool. Take half the beans and whizz up in a food processor. Once the onion is cooled, place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix together with your hands. Shape into burgers and refrigerate for at least an hour.
Brown burgers on both sides and finish off cooking in a moderate oven for 10 minutes.
I serve my burgers in either a flat bread or bun with oven chips. Cut potatoes into chips and bake in the oven with a little olive oil and salt for 45 minutes.
