Veggie Pork Burgers

Veggie Pork Burgers

Burgers are one of my son Ted’s favourite dinners. Although Ted is not a great vegetable fan. Therefore I’m always trying to hide vegetables in his dinner. In recent months I have noticed that Ted will eat burgers with vegetables in if I put it in a burger bun. So I decided to start stuffing burgers with veggies. Thank goodness Ted still enjoyed this burger and he didn’t notice the vegetables either. We love this one and we hope you enjoy it too.

Do you have children and if so, are they fussy eaters? Do you find yourself hiding vegetables? Let me know in the comments below and please don’t forget to like and follow me.

Veggie Pork Burgers

Veggie Pork Burgers were, of course, huge success in our house. Howard and Ted didn’t even notice the vegetables. I made these burgers the night before so this was an added bonus for me. All I had to do was cook them the next day in the oven. You could make these burgers in advance of the meal and store them in the freezer until you want to eat them. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
