I love-making this easy yet lovely chicken burgers!
I prepare them in my food processor & let them stiffen up in the fridge for a few hours.
You can add whatever you want in the burger.
The burgers have a lot of garlic in them but my hubbie & I like it that way!
Recipe: For 6 patties, each about 0.5 cm thick and 7 to 8 cm long
3 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & roughly chopped
1 large red onion, peeled & cut into chunks
1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano or more to your linking
1 large egg, beaten loose
herbamare salt:1/2 teaspoon
50 gr of gluten-free breadcrumbs/ I used Schär.
380 gr of seasoned chicken mince, gluten-free & dairy free
Maldon sea salt flakes
a fruity EVOO to fry the burgers in
** To serve: Gluten free hamburger buns
slices of tomatoes, salad leaves, tomato ketchup, mayonnaise, thinly sliced cucumber slices,…
1. Take your food processor & add the garlic, the cut up red onion, the beaten egg, the oregano, the herbamare, the chicken mince, the gluten-free breadcrumbs & a bit of sea salt flakes according to your liking, all evenly divided over your food processor. Pulse & mix until it all comes together. Taste! It has to taste fab & pungent with the raw onion & the raw garlic. Otherwise add some more oregano, herbamare or sea salt.
2. Shape patties with wet hands, it is easier to do so. Shape patties, each about 0.5 cm thick & 7 to 8 cm long. Place them well apart on a large plate or onto 2 plates. They will be a bit sticky. Place clingfilm over the top of the plates & place in the fridge to stiffen up for 1 to 3 hours.
3. 30 minutes before dinner, take the plate with patties out of the fridge. Remove the clingfilm. When you take the patties from the plate, they still can stick a bit. Fry the patties well spaced apart, until golden & cooked through on both sides, in a hot pan with a few tablespoons of the fruity EVOO in it. Drain them on kitchen paper & enjoy them with your GF sliced hamburger buns, some lettuce, some ketchup, some sliced cucumber slices, etc.
I do have a question. These GF hamburger buns look like the real thing but once you bite in it, the hamburger buns fall so easily apart. It is so crumbly!!!I couldn’t enjoy my burger with all of its trimmings like I used to. Does anyone have this same problem?? And what do you do about it?? Do you all have a great recipe for GF hamburger buns???
