Sabroso Saturday: Budget Friendly Hamburger Recipe

by Migdalia Rivera

It’s Sabroso Saturday (Translation: Tasty Saturday)!  The day when we share recipes that have helped us stretch our budget, our imagination and our taste buds, without sacrificing our health!

******************** 

This week I am noting a budget friendly hamburger recipe my Mother used to make when I was younger. Children love it because they think its fast food. Parents, on the other hand, know its healthier than store brought or fast food burgers because of the added fiber in the wheat bread. Its also budget friendly, since you’re using less meat.

Budget Friendly Hamburgers*
*Recipe
can be fried OR baked

  • 1 lb ground beef, ground turkey OR ground chicken
  • 2 “butt” ends from a loaf of wheat bread (aka the end pieces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder or a minced clove of garlic

Note: Seasoning is done according to taste. You may add more or less salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder. Alternatively, you may also use a tablespoon of Goya Adobo All Purpose Seasoning with Pepper.I prefer the Goya brand but you can use any Adobo brand.

  

Frying Directions

  1. In large bowl, mix meat and spices.
  2. Soak bread in water for 5-10 seconds. Squeeze excess water from bread and mix it into the seasoned meat.
  3. Shape meat into hamburger sized patties. 
  4. In a skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add hamburger. Cook until brown on all sides.

Baking Directions

  1. In large bowl, mix meat and spices.
  2. Soak bread in water for 5-10 seconds. Squeeze excess water from bread and mix it into the seasoned meat.
  3. Shape meat into hamburger sized patty. 
  4. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Bake hamburger in a covered pan for about 30 minutes or until they are no longer pink in the center.

 

To save time, you can double up the recipe and freeze patties for future use.

Enjoy!
