Homemade burgers are ideal for those who are on a diet provided the meat is lean and served with a salad. All it needs is to squeeze some fresh lemon juice when they are still hot and serve with a low-fat yoghurt sauce.
There is a huge difference between homemade beefburgers, using good quality meat and no preservatives and store-bought burgers . You know what ingredients are in there.
For the children try the American style in a bun with ketchup, some vegetables and if they like onions, you can add some caramelized onions or just slices of onions mixed with parsley.
All these recipes are included in my cookbook Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste!
