Mediterranean Burgers

I have your burger night covered this weekend with a healthy twist on the traditional burger!

Burgers are a great meal to have on a Friday or Saturday night. Easy to prepare, tasty, filling and unlikely to get complaints form even the fussiest family member. These burgers are high in protein, high in fibre and low in saturated fat.

500g of lean Pork or Chicken mince.
½ cup of wholegrain breadcrumbs
¼ cup semi – dried tomatoes, chopped (you can make these yourself with mini roma tomatos cut in half, drizzed with olive oil, fresh basil, and placed into a very low oven for 30 mins).
4 spring onions, chopped.
¼ cup pitted Kalamata Olives, chopped.
1 egg
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
4 Wholegrain bread rolls
4 tablespoons hummus (If you don’t want to make your own there are some fabulous brands of hummus with no added sugar or salt – check your local health food shop or delicatessen)
Rocket, sliced cucumber and sliced tomato.


• Mix together mince, wholegrain breadcrumbs, sundried tomatoes, spring onion, olives, egg and parsley into a large bowl. Make the mixture into 4 patties.
• Spray a large fry pan with oil and cook patties for 4 – 5 minutes on each side.
• To serve, spread rolls with 1 tablespoon hummus and add patty, slice of tomato, slice of cucumber and rocket.
• Enjoy!
