Serves: 2
 
YUMYUMYUM!
Ingredients
  • ½ to ¾ lb. lean ground beef (turkey or chicken would work as well)
  • ¼ oats, ground (I used the coffee grinder, cleaned out a bit first)
  • ⅛ C flax seeds, ground
  • 1-2 T apple cider vinegar
  • pinch ginger
  • 1-2 T honey
  • pinch cumin
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 1 t paprika
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 t parsley
  • ½ t red pepper flakes
  • Sometimes I’ll add an egg (helps hold it together), some BBQ sauce, and a grated clove of garlic. Last time I added some grated zucchini, because I had it. We couldn’t taste it, but knew it was adding a bit more goodness to the burgers.
Instructions
  1. Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix with your hands. Don’t overmix (I don’t know why, I’ve just heard this said).
  2. Shape into burger shapes, pressing in slightly in the center of the burger with your thumb.
  3. Cook in a cast iron skillet (flipping once) about 10 minutes, or until they reach 160F, or on a BBQ (10-15 minutes). Top with Gruyere, if you like it, and caramelized onions and mushrooms (dry pan, sliced onions and mushrooms, add a few drizzles of honey, cook until caramelized).
Notes
Really good with a vanilla milkshake too! (We did, more or less: 1 C Trader Joe’s vanilla bean ice cream, ½ C greek yogurt, ½ C milk – use more or less depending on how thick you want them). Blend.
