Veal and Zucchini Mini Burgers

You wouldn't believe how much flavour you can add to your ground meat just by adding a packet of onion soup mix! I used Lipton brand. I'm not sure if other brands use such large pieces of dehydrated onion. And of course, I added veggies to these mini burgers. I served them on lettuce but you can find slider buns all over the place these days. Only 4 ingredients in this recipe. It doesn't get any easier! And whatever you do, you should know that adding salt to this recipe would be a bad idea. Onion soup mix has more than enough of it.

12 mini burgers

1lb lean ground veal (or beef)
1 packet dried onion soup mix
1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar
1 zucchini, grated and gently squeezed

Use your hands to combine all of the ingredients well. Shape into 12 balls and flatten them to about 1/2". They'll get fatter and shrink while they cook.

Heat a nonstick pan over medium high heat (closer to medium) and add a bit of cooking spray (or oil if you wish).

Place the little burgers into the pan (maybe 6 at a time depending on the size of your pan) and cook for about 5 minutes per side or until golden and cooked through.

I served mine on lettuce with some tzatziki (that I found in the fridge), avocado and tomato.
