Healthy and Frugal Meatloaf "Burgers"

Try sneaking vegetables to your picky eaters in the form of meatloaf burgers. Add leftover vegetables like peas or mashed potatoes and unbuttered corn to the ground meat and mix well as you would meatloaf to blend. Cooked rice or unsweetened cereals and even uncooked oats are fine too. Add an egg (or 2) if you plan to grill this for stability. Prepare the burger patty as you normally would. Thumb press an indent in the center for more even cooking. Don't press the burger after it begins cooking to flatten it or squeeze out the fluids. In addition to getting your picky eater that essential vitamin through the hidden veggies, you are also then extending the amount of meat!

My husband always used shredded carrots in meatloaf.
