Mini Burger Patties

When its my turn to cook, I usually make one of two things: korean food, or mini meatball patties. Usually meatball night is sunday night, like today. And the recipe always comes out a little different depending whats on hand. Usually it's a pretty standard mix conceptually:

1) Something to act as bread crumbs. Because Julian is allergic to gluten, its usually crushed rice chex or rice crackers
2) Meat base- at least one part ground beef, I've used ground chicken, turkey, and pork before.
3) Vegetable mix: I sautee chopped onions, and add spring onion if I have it on hand
4) Misc: salt, pepper, a couple eggs for moisture.

I form them into mini patties and just pan fry them. I've gotten a positive response every time. I also prepare a DIY A1 sauce: ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, a dash of soy sauce mixed together.

So, how much work did I get done?

[x] Draft of Lit paper (4/5 pages)
[x] Draft of Story for CW (7/10 pages)
[x] All my japanese homework (just studying left to do)
[ ] read chapter 11 of genetics and do wednesday's homework (Ffffff)

~3/4 isn't bad. That's like 75% of projected goals.

I have had much less productive weekends than this one. Hope everyone has a good coming week


  1. You're really productive! o_o These patties seem pretty easy, I'm going to try them out whenever I have the chance.

  2. Crap, you did a lot more this weekend then I do. I have a lot to do, but I've been putting off studying for some tough exams this week >.< (3 total)

    Those look really tasty. As I am running out of food this week, maybe I will try to concoct something similar!

  3. Mmm...those patties look good.

    Also that's quite a lot of homework...which reminds me, I need to do homework too...X_x

  4. ...And this is why I'm 100% in science courses. Lots of midterms, but very few assignments.

  5. I like this. More of this! following.

  6. Those look delicious, my mouth is watering :)

  7. Those look cute and delicious! A lot of burger patties are too big for me; these look perfect :D

  8. Great post. waiting for more updates

  9. You've managed to get through a lot of work! Good job :D

    Those patties do look yummy as!

  10. I'm not sure if it's gluten free or not, but if you're using eggs, you should try a little mayo to bind them together as well.

    I make a spicy mayo for sandwiches and stuff out of mayo+cayenne pepper+ground mustard+soy sauce. It is incredible.

  11. Those just reminded me how hungry I am...

  12. Those patties look really delicious, and sound it, too! Tempted to give them a go, and maybe put them on a Hawaiian bread roll. Mmmn.

  13. Cool story, bro!
    Following your blog

  14. yay productivity! I wish I could get that much work done when I sit down to do something >.> I'm totally ADD or something, because I'll always end up drawing or something else. Like making those patties! They look really good...I'm just worried I'll totally mess up. hmmmm~

  15. Dang... I might actually make these for my next house party! XD
