This recipe is great for helping your children get some of the 5 a day veg required-to add to the fun,you can be brave and let them help making them,this does seem to encourage them to eat some,and is a great holiday rainy day fun time to introduce children to cooking, These "burgers freeze well (I use a well washed empty ice cream tub) and can be re-cooked from frozen.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil and mash the potatoes,allow to cool whilst you just bring the vegetables to the boil,(the crunch makes them tasty)then drain the veg and sat aside to cool a little.
  2. Mix the cheese and onion into the potato,and add the veg.
  3. At this point,you can ask the children to help by dividing the mixture into 2 or three bowls,and mix all the ingredients together thoroughly with your HANDS (kids LOVE THIS)!
  4. Now-for the mixture into thin burger shapes,empty the breadcrumbs into a bowl and coat each side of each burger (it should make 10 good size burgers- 2 per person) with the breadcrumbs.
  5. Lay in a non stick baking tray or on a sheet of baking paper in the grill pan.
  6. Drizzle over a little oil to help brown and crisp if desired (it does help-but only a small amount is required).
  7. Bake in a preheated oven on gas mark 6 for 20 minutes a side.
  8. Enjoy!
