RECIPE:

Number of serves: 4

Preparation time: 10-15 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

 

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

Equipment

  • Barbeque, or frying pan & hot plate.
  • Spatula or tongs
  • Chopping board
  • Small sharp knife
  • Small bowls for serving

 

Ingredients

  • 4 wholemeal/wholegrain bread rolls
  • 400g/4 lean meat patties
  • 1 tablespoon of canola oil for cooking
  • 1 lettuce
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 brown onions
  • 4 slices (80g) of reduced-fat cheese

 

METHOD:

  1. Thinly slice the lettuce, tomato then onion (keep separated).
  2. Heat the barbeque hot plate on medium with ½ tablespoon of oil. Add onions and cook for 3-4 minutes until onions are lightly browned.
  3. Still using the hot plate, heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add lean meat patties and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
  4. Cut your bread rolls in half and top with lettuce, tomato, patties, cheese and cooked onion.
  5. Serve and eat up!

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Offer plenty of vegies – include a variety such as cucumber, beetroot, avocado, or spinach. Add some pineapple or potato slices to the barbeque for something extra.
  • Use herbs and spices for flavour – try pepper, lemon, and garlic or paprika, chilli and lime.
  • Making your own patties? Add some grated carrot and zucchini to the mix.
  • Cook up some tofu or vegie patties as an alternative to meat.

 

Tips:

  • Make it a combo! Add a piece of fruit and a bottle of water for a value meal deal.
  • Choose lean meats as a good source of protein – ask your local supermarket or supplier.
  • Cook with oils like olive, canola, peanut and sunflower.

 

Preventing food waste:

  • Use any leftover salad items for sandwiches, wraps or a salad bowl.
  • Freeze your extra lean meat patties and defrost them as needed.
