directions

  • Saute chopped zucchini, bell pepper, and onion in 1 tbls. butter on medium low heat until very soft, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Combine zucchini mixture with the parsley, cheese, cracker crumbs, walnuts, egg, pepper, salt if using, and garlic. Cool for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • Form into 4 patties, depending on what size you want them(at this point you may freeze in between sheets of wax paper or plastic wrap).
  • In a sauté pan, heat olive oil until hot, reduce heat to medium, then fry patties about 5-7 minutes each side, till nice and brown on each side.
  • To make sauce, mix mayonnaise, mustard and honey together in a small bowl. Use 1 tbls. sauce for each burger.
  • You can serve these in buns with sauce, or by themselves with sauce on top.
  • Caramelized onions(just onions sauteed in small amount of oil till golden brown) are great to go on top of burger.

    These have a great flavor and were pretty easy to make. I did have to add extra cracker crumbs and they still turned out really soft. The texture made them better served alone rather than on a bun. Of course they still tasted great and are a healthy dinner option :)

    These are very easy to make and taste wonderful. I did have a problem with them being too soft/moist in the center for using on a bun. I would add more bread/cracker crumbs and maybe salt the zucchini and let it drain and then squeeze out the excess moisture first before cooking. But if you are just going to eat them as a patty without the bun, they are fine. The sauce is just the right compliment for these. I used parsley and fresh oregano, and think they would be good with fresh cilantro also!

    I thought this recipe sounded interesting and a little different to the others submitted for the Dining on a $ competition. I'm really glad that I tried this recipe- enjoyed by all of my family. I could have gobbled the vegetable mix before even making the burgers. I used a gluten-free cracker to make the crumbs for this recipe to make it gluten-free diet suitable. I did need to add about an extra 1/2 quantity of the crumbs for the mixture to be thick enough. Delicious burgers, served with the yummy sauce and a salad on the side. I think this recipe could even have more of the chopped walnuts added as they really added to the texture. Good luck in the competition. Photo also to be posted
