Recipe by The Flying Chef

I know it is not the time of year for BBQing but I had my niece over last night and she loves her hamburgers, so I made beef and chicken burgers.

TFC, with the cost of beef going through the roof and 6 mouths to feed (5 tonight) I needed to find a way to stretch things a bit. I must admit I was a wee bit hesitant as to how these burgers were going to come out as I feared they might taste too much like meatloaf- something I have never acquired a taste for and thus deprive my family of. I normally buy extra lean ground beef which tends to shrink less when frying or grilling however it is no longer in the I bought ground chuck on sale and expected to have tiny burgers. You can imagine my surprise when I ended up with nice thick burgers that hardly changed in size! They were so tender and juicy, and the flavor was meatloaf at all! The only change I made to the recipe was to add a third small egg to the mix because my daughter brought three fresh eggs in from the coop. Best of all, I was able to get twice the amount of burgers from my normal amount of beef. With prices continuing to climb, that is a real plus. I will definitely be making this recipe again. Thanks for sharing! Made and reviewed for the 60th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.
