DIY: WALLET FRIENDLY HOMEMADE HAMBURGER
Hamburger is a popular classic meal that is nourishing, tasty and mouthwatering which can be homemade, if you have a frying pan, oven or grill.
I discovered this recipe when I had a craving for hamburger and my wallet wasn’t exactly hefty at that time to purchase a hamburger for N12, 000 from a popular celebrity’s site.
The funniest thing was when I went to the mart, I spent less than N6,000 to purchase all my recipes, so for people who would like to experience the same wallet friendly homemade burger like mine and cannot afford a N12,000 hamburger, here’s my nourishing and wallet friendly homemade hamburger ingredient.
Ground meat or Minced meat – 80g Olive oil – ½ tsps. Crushed crackers/ bread crumbs Egg – 1 Tomato – 1 Milk Soy Sauce Seasonings: salt, garlic, pepper or any other spices of your choice. Round bread or Burger bread
Step 1: Add in your ground meat, crushed crackers or bread crumbs, soy sauce, milk, egg, and spice in a large bowl and use your hands to mix them until smooth, and then press down.
Step 2: Cut the hamburger patties into six (6) parts. Set out a foil paper or baking sheet and place the formed patties on the baking sheet or foil paper. Put a dent in the center of the patties before cooking, so it won’t puff up.
Step 3: On medium heat, preheat the oven, grill or frying pan to 350- 400 degrees. Place your patties to grill or fry for 3-5 minutes per side.
Step 4: Fill the hamburger buns or bread with the patties, add your onion, sliced tomatoes, ketchup, and lettuce. Then place it in the frying pan/oven/grill to heat for 2- 4 minutes.
You can serve your mouthwatering hamburger with either fries and a cold fizzy drink or yogurt.
