ALMOST HEALTHY BURGERS

Hi guys! Who's up for some Friday food? Personally, I recommend this great recipe for homemade hamburgers. Burgers don't have to be the greasy kind you get from McDonald's, they can actually be quite healthy if you make them right. Making your own mince meat steaks from scratch may seem like a big job to do, but in fact, it's really simple. Trust me, they're a hundred times tastier than the ones you get from the freezer at the store! So here's a little something for you to enjoy this weekend:

Mince meat steaks:
- 400 g mince meat
- 0.75 dl breadcrumb
- 1.5 dl water
- 1 onion
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- a pinch of white pepper and garlic

1. Mix the breadcrumb and the water in a big bowl. Let the mixture swell for a while.
2. Peel and slice the onion.
3. Mix all the other ingredients with the breadcrumb.
4. Start forming round steaks out of the dough. You might want to use some canola oil in your hands while doing this.
5. Prepare the steaks on a pan and roast until brown. Instead of roasting, you can also put the steaks into a 225 C oven for 12-15 minutes. 

Burgers:
- Whole grain bread (toasted)
- Fresh salad, tomato and cucumber
- Cheddar cheese
- Mince meat steaks (for a veggie version, try eggplant or champignons!)
- Ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, whatever you like.

The key to keeping the burgers healthy is using whole grain buns, roasting the steaks in canola oil instead of butter and keeping the amount of greasy hamburger sauces to a minimum. 

Now get cooking and enjoy your rustic burgers! :)
