Homemade Teenburger


  • Makes0 servings

When you make them from scratch, hamburgers can be guaranteed low fat with as many delicious toppings as you dare to prepare. I grate the onion so no one knows it's there. Serve on whole-wheat buns.


  • 500 g lean ground beef

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 cup wheat germ

  • 1/2 cooking onion, grated

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

  • freshly ground black pepper


  • In a large bowl, combine beef, egg, wheat germ, onion, soy sauce and pepper. Mix well with your hands and form patties. Spray a non-stick frying pan lightly with cooking oil and heat to medium high (or heat up the grill). Cook patties 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until no longer pink inside. (Due to E. coli, it's not safe to serve hamburgers rare. Cook fully.)
