Veggie Beef Burger with Dill Mayo

I am a real estate broker/appraiser and an accountant for my corporation but I love to cook and I teach my grandchildren how to cook. I try to prepare healthy recipes that I make up and see if they will eat it. If they do, I know it is good. This is a tried and true hamburger that my grandchildren like and they get their vegetables. The vegetables were used to add some zest to the burgers


Dill Mayonaise:
2 tablespoons of fresh dill finely chopped
1/2 cup of mayonaise
1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice
3 tablespoons of water
All these ingredients are mixed together and then placed in the refrigerator while the burgers are cooking.
1 1/2 pounds of lean hamburger meat
1 yellow gooseneck squash sliced and quartered
1 zuccini sliced and quartered
4 green onions chopped
3 cloves of fresh garlic minced
1 teaspoon of garlic salt
1 teaspoon of fresh ground pepper
1 egg
1/2 can of drained Rotel
1 Roma tomato diced
1/4 cup of diced red bell pepper
1/4 cup Canola oil to brush the grill
6 Sesame Kaiser rolls
1/2 cucumber sliced
4 Romaine lettuce leafs torn in large pieces


Prepare the dill mayonaise by mixing all the ingredients and storing in the refrigerator until the burgers are done. Place squash and zuccini together in about 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil. Cook for 2 minutes. Drain in a seive. Place cooked squash and zuccini in a dish towel and squeeze out excess water. Put squash, zuccini, hamburger meat, green onions, garlic, garlic salt, ground pepper, egg, Rotel, tomato and bell pepper in a bowl and mix together. Shape into 6 patties. Heat grill to medium and brush with canola oil. Cook Burgers about 4 minutes on one side, then turn over and cook about 4 more minutes. Burgers should not be overcooked. Slice Kaiser rolls and place on grill for about 1 minute to lightly toast. To assembly burgers: Spread the toasted buns with dill mayonaise. Place the burger on the bun and then top with 3 cucumber slices and Romaine lettuce. Serve immediately.


This has become a weekend favorite of mine and my grandson, Logan. I like to have a glass of Gewurztraminer with my burger while my grandson has his chocolate milk. I have served this to my guest and they have ask for my recipe because they enjoy it so much
