Veggie Patty Sandwich 蔬菜蛋饼三文治

Does your little one likes mushrooms and onions? Not my picky Ethan, he is so insistent of pulling out mushroom and onion if he sees any in his meal. So, sneaking some mushrooms and onion into his burger patty is one of the best methods I can think of.

My trick worked. My little boy happily ate up the veggie patty sandwich without realizing what's in them. Mission accomplished! :)

You can replace the vegetables below with any other options available in your kitchen, do ensure the mixture is not too watery else they will not hold the shape.

Veggie Patty Platter, yummy breakfast time...

Preparation Time: 30min
Cooking Time: 15min
Serving for: 4 person

4 slices of sandwich bread
10-12 salad leaves
Tomato Ketchup (or replace with fresh puree)

For Veggie Patty (A):
4 table spoons chopped Cauliflower / Broccoli
4 table spoons chopped Onion
4 table spoons chopped green beans
2 large portobello mushrooms, chopped
2 gloves garlic, chopped
4 table spoons bread crumb
2 Eggs
1 table spoon all purpose flour
Few fresh basil leaves (optional)
Dash of salt and black pepper

Step-by-Step Guides:
  1. Mix all ingredient A together, roughly blend them. Add salt, black pepper and herbs of your choice to taste.
  2. Heat up a table spoon of olive oil in a frying pan, scoop 2 spoonful of veggie mixture into the pan. Cook eat side for 5 min, becareful when turning so it will retain a nice circle shape.
  3. Serve with salad leaves and tomato ketchup over sandwich breads.

I let my little boy helped to squeez the "Up-side down" Heinz Ketchup onto the patty, he was excited like hero of the day, busy helping everyone to squeeze the ketchup. Let the little ones help up in doing little chores, you'll be surprised how much they enjoy it. :)

Tips when Serving for  Little Ones! 
For younger infants below 2 years old, you may let them  eat the entire patty as-is by hands, or smash up the patty to avoid risk of chocking.
