Cooking With Kids : Homemade Beef Burgers With Apple and Marmite

3 Simple & Unusual Ingredients

1 Apple
500g minced beef
1tsp marmite


Mix a Peeled grated apple with 500g of lean mind beef and a teaspoon of marmite

Shape and firmly press into around 10 burgers -squeeze the mixture together so they don't fall apart during cooking.

Brush both sides with oil and grill, barbecue or fry until cooked through .. about 10 minutes each side.

Serve with a bun and salad or with baked beans, broccoli and chips.

For homemade chips, cook too many boiled potatoes one day and use the leftovers to make wonderful homemade chips the next nigh, slice them up and shallow fry them in a few tablespoons of oil oil for a few minutes until they are heated through and slightly crispy on the outside.

Good Food Tips:

Add in Worcestershire sauce, sauteed onions and even a crumbled up stock cube to add more flavours to your burgers.

You can use any sort of mince for this recipe - if you have a food processor you can even buy beef steak and mince them up yourselves.

The apple is from my own tree and mincer is an old one I found one day while rumbling in a charity shop. And I took my very first macro shot on my Nikon DS3100
