This is based on a recipe Cooking for 1, thought I would post as there has been queries again for recipes for 1 person. Please play around with this recipe as you could add finely grated veggies to the patty, use different sauces etc.

Since I cook for one or two, this recipe was perfect for me and my mother. I made one seving for the two of use to split with ground very lean turkey meat. I used sliced velveta cheese since thats what I had and opted out on the beets. This makes the perfect sized and falvored burger for one!

Latchy I wish I had made this burger while you were still with us so I could have told you how delicious it is. I used a spicy tomato sauce in the pattie and a piece of foccacia bread for the bun. I tried beetroot on the burger for the first time and it was very good - Next time I will use a slice or two of Pickled beets. Moist pattie that I pan fried - it held well together in the pan but I would be carefulwithit on a BBQ-unless it is an Aussie tyle BBQ with the metal plate. Burger was enjoyed and I sent a salute to you Latchy for posting it.

Well, you said to play around with this, so I did!!! It turned out great. I used ground turkey, but the rest of the ingredients were just as directed...except those beetroots....sorry, just can't go there!!!! I did use the cheese, but I put the grated cheese directly into the meat as I mixed it. That way is was all through the burger. Thanks for the great recipe.
