  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds, pulsed into meal

To assemble:

Place patties ingredients into a bowl and combine well.

Roll 1/4 cup measures into small patties.

Serving Suggestions


  • There’s room for a few vegetables on the burger. You could also replace the usual store bought deep fried hot chips with homemade baked potato or sweet potato chips, a handful of steamed frozen corn and peas or a little side salad.
  • Feel free to use chicken mince instead of beef, perhaps switching to seeded mustard rather than Dijon.
