Mini Hamburgers

Mince meat is quite a staple in our family, often this results in a chili dish, spaghetti, or some other wet kind of meal. However, after having enough of the norm for us, I decided to branch out and try something new... This is what happened.

Mini Hamburgers!

What I did...

1kg minced meat
1 large onion
2 eggs
5T tomato paste
2t chili paste (or flavoring of your choice)
Salt and Pepper to taste

Start by dicing the onion really fine, I tend not to like a big hunk of onion in my burger patties, however that is me. So I would suggest chopping as fine as you like. Then combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Separate into balls, (I made mine about 1/4 cup worth as I was making minis)
 Flatten to achieve burger patty goodness and fry in a preheated pan for around 10 minutes.

I finished mine off by using English muffins for the bun, some sliced tomato, red onion, lettuce and cheese. There are so many ideas you could add, maybe pineapple or beetroot?

With the remanding mix I rolled and flattened into spare burgers, put a sheet of baking paper between each, wrapped in glad wrap and froze for a later date. Perfect to pull out on those 'don't feel like being creative days'.
