Itsy bitsy cheese burgers

If your kids love burgers they’ll go nuts for these! Hide a few veggies in the patties, plus a bit of salad on top, and they’ll be eating healthy without even noticing it. It can get a bit fiddly with all the small pieces, so you might want to make a couple of big people burgers too.

What you’ll need:


  • 500g Beef mince
  • ¼ Cup breadcrumbs
  • ¼ Cup grated cheese
  • 250g Grape tomatoes
  • 1 Cup baby spinach leaves
  • 5 Slices bread
  • ½ Small brown onion
  • 1 Carrot


  1. Finely chop the onion then combine in a mixing bowl with mince, breadcrumbs and grated carrot.
  2. Shape mixture into patties of about 2 tablespoons, this should give you around twenty patties.
  3. Cook in non-stick pan on a medium heat for around 8-10 minutes, turning once.
  4. Toast the bread, then using a scone or small biscuit-cutter, cut four circles out of each piece of toast.
  5. Stack up your salad and rissoles on your tiny-toast to make your mini-burgers.
