Lean and Juicy Hamburgers

Healthy burger

Grass-fed beef contain higher concentrations of Beta-carotene, increased levels of omega-3 fatty acids, a more desirable omega-3:omega-6 ratio, and higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA or polyunsaturated fatty acids), all substances that are reported to have favorable effects on our health.


  • 1 pound lean ground meat (i.e. grass-fed beef or buffalo)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal with hot water added to the cup (just enough to fill up the cracks)
  • 2 Tbsp. raisins (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp. walnuts, broken into pieces (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Fresh ground pepper


  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Form into patties.
  3. Heat a frying pan to medium to medium high and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil.
  4. Add patties and cook at medium heat until side is golden brown.
  5. Flip and cover to keep moist and to “bake” the inside of the burger.
  6. Enjoy with the usual hamburger fixings or as you would meatloaf.
