Homemade Burger with hidden veg

Hidden Veggie Burgers


I love this recipe because it incorporates vegetables and spices. Although I am not a big fan of hiding vegetables, it is a great way of getting your children to eat vegetables that they might not otherwise accept. They also make this burger so moist and delicious! 

Try it out alongside our Polenta Chips for a delicious meal any day of the week.
