Patties - Start off with one kilo of regular beef mince ( $5 per kg )
seasonings of pepper, garlic, seasoned bread crumbs ( homemade ), tomato sauce, soy sauce , onion, parsley. I use dried onion and herbs. The seasonings cost about 5 cents per patty I use a good shake or squirt of everything and combine it well with my electric mixer.
Use your electric scales to weigh out 80 grams per patty. The cost per patty with the seasonings is approx 45 cents.
Bread rolls cost 10 cents each to make .
Cheese, lettuce and tomato ( if you grow your own ) the cost is approx 10 cents for the cheese. If you need to buy all these allow about 30 cents.
Tomato sauce or mayo about 5 cents
Homemade wedges - potatoes cost about $2.99 for five kilos. I use my Nicer Dicer to cut the potatoes into wedges. I spray them lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with Season All. Cook for about an hour at 200 degrees Celsius. For a single serve of wedges with seasoning the cost would be 20 cents.
Total cost for a single hamburger and serve of wedges is $0.90.
If rolls and patties are made and frozen ahead of time, it takes about 15 minutes to make the hamburgers. Occasionally Darren adds an egg to his hamburger. We have chickens to supply us with eggs so it doesn't cost us anything to add an egg. This meal is filling, , far more filling than what you can buy at the shops.
Next time you have a craving for takeaway, have a go at making your own. It's healthier, cheaper, tastier and far more satisfying to make it yourself.
