Ground Beef Veggie Burgers

Have you seen the TLC show, Extreme Couponing?

It is madness... Women work 60+ hours gathering, printing, stealing, dumpster diving coupons each week. They make a plan and go shopping and spend $500+ and might spend after coupons $25 at most. We have even seen a show where the store actually owed the buyer money... 


It is neat to watch but, yes there is a but, but, have you noticed the food in the shopping carts????


One gal had 96 LARGE sport drinks, 200 cans Coke, 40+ frozen pizzas, 40 boxed cake mix, 50 pieces of candy...

Although the show is neat to watch but I do not plan on becoming an extreme couponist! I like my food ALIVE... from my local farmer (well dead), csa, farmers markets. I would rather have a higher grocery bill. I could see myself coupon to just give all the food away to shelters but I do not see the entering our house. 

The neat thing... There was one gal who got diaper boxes for $0.25. That is awesome. Yes, I do not use cloth diapers. I just couldn't deal with the cleaning of them....  

Onto an once alive meal! :) 

Before I start with the recipe, I want to tell you that this creation is all HUBBY... I wish I could take the credit for this delicious burger but I can't :) I did enjoy one in a BIG salad with more vegetables and it was great! I also ate one plain!!! They were WONDERFUL!!!!! 

Hubby usually makes dinner on Friday's just to give me a break and because he secretly loves creating dishes!!! shhh!!! :) He is real good in the kitchen and his mixtures are always delicious! Although he did have a mishap with Chicken and Apples -- YUCK. We wont talk about that today! :) 

He made us delicious ground beef veggie burgers!!! 
 He chopped broccoli, green bell pepper and red bell pepper

and added it to the ground beef and formed burgers.
We then splurged and topped it with cheese. This was great in my spring lettuce salad!!!! :)

The Ingredients:
1 cup chopped (almost minced) broccoli
1 chopped green bell pepper
1 chopped red bell pepper
1 lb ground beef

* If you want to splurge a piece of cheese for each burger!

The Directions:
Hubby chopped all the vegetables and then mixed with 1 lb ground beef. Form into 1/4 lb burgers. We made 6. Then grill until desired pinkness! :)
