No- Junk Lazy Tuesday Tea

Well it’s not exactly flaming June, is it? Having settled back in to the school routine, I found myself looking for something a bit different for tea. The brief was super fast, easy and nutritious but a crown pleaser (I almost always manage to cook the same as school dinners – note to self, read the bloody menus woman!!!)

Last time I was doing my trolley dash around Aldi I found a burger press. Love it that I go in to get shopping and come out with a tent, face cream, 400 toilet rolls and a burger press. Every. Time!!

Anyway, I’m still trying to cram the veggies in everywhere possible, so I had a go at these beauties but grated some cheeky courgette in to them without detection (now, that’s a mum win if I ever did see one).

They were delicious, and a pack of mince made enough for two dinners, so there are a bunch in the freezer for next time.

Ingredients

  • Pack of lean (5%) steak mince
  • Half a courgette (grated)
  • One onion (finely blended)
  • Paprika, salt and pepper (to taste)
  • Sprinkle of Italian herbs
  • Two eggs

Method

    Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
    Roughly cut up potato or sweet potato and parboil for a few mins until still firm but with a tiny bit of squidge around the edges.
    Throw them in to a baking tray and spray generously with Fry Light (making sure you cover all the sides) and season.
    Pop into the oven and bake for 20-30 mins.
    In the meantime, chuck the ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a wooden spoon. Once the ingredients are roughly incorporated then get in there with your hands and give it a good squish together.
    Spoon them into a burger press, or if you’ve not bagged one from Aldi, then just spoon them into balls and shape and compact them with your hands. Then flatten them down.
    Lay them on a baking tray and cook for approximately 10-12 minutes.
    Serve with or without buns, tomato and a lovely slab of pickle. Enjoy!

Happy Tuesday lovely people!
