Healthy kids recipe - easy home-made hamburgers

We had a BBQ today - yes it was raining but we would rarely use our BBQ if we relied on sunny weather. My kids love grilled meat and home-made hamburgers are perfect for the kids served in a burger bun and a slice of tomato.
Easy home-made burgers
1 pack beef mince
2 tbsp. breadcrumbs
1 egg, beaten
Salt and pepper
1 grated carrot
1 grated apple
Any herb of choice
  1. Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well together either with a spoon or your hands
  2. Wet your hands (this prevents the mixture from sticking to your hands) and form 6-8 burgers
  3. You can grill them on the BBQ or in the oven. 3-4 minutes on each side is sufficient depending on thickness
Kinder Kitchen Serving suggestions:
It is nice to use lamb mince instead. Adding a little thyme is great with lamb. If you want to add onions and garlic to the mince, it is best to fry these for 5 minutes first so that they do not taste raw once the burger meat is cooked.
