Recipe of the Week Beetroot Burgers on a Blaa

Recipe of the Week – Beetroot Burgers


I serve these in a fresh blaa with a yoghurt and dill dressing and a seasonal salad.  This makes 6 large burgers.




  • 500g beetroot
  • 100g bread crumbs
  • 100g porridge oats
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 small red onion, very finely chopped
  • A large handful of finely chopped dill, thyme and parsley




Peel and grate the beetroot and put it in a large bowl.  Add the bread crumbs, porridge oats, beaten eggs, onions and herbs, and season well.  Mix it all together well with your hands.  Season well. 

Shape it in to 6 or 7 burger-sized patties and then put them on a plate in the fridge for an hour or so.  This will help ensure that the burgers don’t fall apart in cooking.


Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Heat some oil in a pan and fry the burgers briefly on each side to seal them.  Then put them on a baking tray and bake them in the oven for 20 minutes and serve immediately.  They are even better on day two if you have any left!
