3 Steps to The Big Green Burger

It’s big. It’s Green. It can be made with either a veggie patty mix or ground beef. Only attempt to eat this burger if you crave flavour, love summer food, and don’t mind taking the plunge into a new version of the classic burger.

We suppose you could modify the measurements in this recipe to make a much more reasonably sized and less luxurious meal, but why? Go big or go home. The Big Green Burger is not messing around.

THE BIG GREEN BURGER


The Big Green Burger

YOU’LL NEED:

  • 1 lb ground meat – we like sirloin, but we’re fancy like that. You could also use a veggie patty!
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper & 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or crushed
  • 1 egg
  • 2 green jalapeños, finely chopped
  • 3/4 C panko/breadcrumbs
  • a few dashes of worcestershire sauce
  • For dressing your Green Burger: Baby greens, sliced pickle,  and your favourite guacamole (or just blend/mush up 1 avocado with 1/2 white onion finely chopped, and juice of 1 lime – salt & pepper to taste)
  • We like a whole wheat bun, but if you want to take this to a new level, try a spinach or green onion bun.
STEPS:
  1. Combine meat, spices, herbs, onion, jalapeños, garlic, worcestershire sauce, and breadcrumbs in a bowl. Add egg and mix with hands thoroughly. If mixture is too wet for well-formed patties to hold their shape, add 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs and mix thoroughly until you have a consistency like cookie dough.
  2. Form into patties (yield for this recipe depends on how big you want your burgers) and chill for a few hours.
  3. Grill or fry with a little olive oil until cooked as desired. Serve on your chosen bun with the above recommended ingredients, or try your own green favourites on your hulk of a hamburger.
