Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. Which turned out to be a stroke of luck for me. You see, the timing was perfect, because Humpty was just ready to hatch anyway, Since Humpty was an orphan, some kind-hearted poultry farmer raised Humpty to maturity, and then killed, plucked, and ground Humpty. This is a great recipe for ground fully-grown egg.
- 12 ounces ground chicken breast (or fully-grown Humpty)
- 1⁄4 cup unseasoned breadcrumbs
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill or 1 1⁄2 teaspoons dried dill
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh thyme or 1⁄4 teaspoon dried thyme
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped dill pickle
- 1 tablespoon fresh dill or 1 1⁄2 teaspoons dried dill
- Mix all the sauce ingredients thoroughly, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
- Mix the ground Humpty, breadcrumbs, dill and thyme well and make into patties.
- Grill, broil or fry until desired doneness.
- Pour the sauce over the Humpty Dumpty burgers and enjoy.
I've got one kid that is a maniac for dill! She also loves hamburgers. Just as a comment, she has trouble pronouncing a hard r, so when we go out for fast food we don't go to Burger King, we go to Booger King). I made these "boogers" last night, and she's fallen in love! To keep this non-dairy I just doubled the mayo instead of using yogurt. I grilled good old Humpty in a stove top grill pan. Two meat-eating Dornettes had theirs in buns (Yogi's Tasty Buns are perfect for this), I had mine unaccompanied by superfluous bread, just smothered in sauce with a giant-sized Israeli salad on the side. My veggie Dornette used the sauce for carrot stick dipping. My dill-loving Dornette pronounced these better than Booger King! Thanks for another winner, Miller!
I loved these burgers! Instead of ground chicken, I used ground pork (had it in the freezer) and used sour cream instead of plain yogurt. I accidentally put a tablespoon of dried dillweed in the burger mix (read the recipe wrong) and they still turned out fantastic. I will definitely be making these again... thanks Mille!
