Homemade burgers – are they really better?
Making an internet search with the word “burger” will result in hundreds (if not thousands) of homemade burger recipes. How is it possible? How can they be so popular while we can buy them in countless fast food places? Isn’t it easier that way? Yes, it is definitely easier to buy some fast food while going home from work, instead of using all that time preparing them ourselves. But if we compare fast food with home cooking, this might be its only advantage. Just think about it: making your own food is almost always cheaper than buying something out. Besides, it is healthier as well, that’s for sure. So isn’t your health and money worth preserving with just a little bit extra time and effort? If your answer is yes, keep reading, and you will find some great recipes for burgers made on the BBQ grill.
- Turkey burgers on grill
Making this burger will only take half an hour from your day, which is really not such a long time. To make the burgers you need to blend well together with the followings: minced turkey, bread crumbs, egg whites, chopped onion, chopped parsley, chopped garlic along with some salt and pepper. Place the pieces for grilling on a charcoal grill and leave them there for about 15 minutes, using medium temperature. Don’t forget to turn them over at half-time! Once they are done, you can prepare the hamburgers: hamburger bun, meat, tomato, lettuce or anything else that you like.
- Yummy salmon burgers
This kind of burger is even healthier than the first one! What will you need to make it? Canned salmon, eggs, minced onion, parsley, bread crumbs, basil, lemon juice, red pepper flakes and some salt. Blend them well, form them into thin patties, then place them on a hot grill for like 10 minutes (again, don’t forget the half-time turning). While they are on the grill device, you will have time to prepare the sauce. Take some lemon juice, basil, and mayo, blend them well and it is ready to use. Follow the instructions above in order to make your burgers.
- Grilled chicken pineapple sliders
This burger combines the taste of Hawaii with healthy chicken breast, which makes it a perfect choice for those on a diet. It takes more time to make them than the first two burgers (more than an hour actually), but the result will compensate you for sure. Start with preparing the house for the chicken. Mix the juice of lemon and lime, cider vinegar, salt, and pepper, and place the meat in the liquid for about an hour (put it in the fridge, it’s even better that way). Afterward, place the pieces of chicken on hot grill, and roast them for 5-10 minutes, turning them over at half-time. Grill some pineapple rings for a few minutes until they are slightly brown. Now it’s time to create the burgers: toasted rolls in half with teriyaki sauce spread on it, lettuce, chicken, pineapple, onion and a half roll again.
