Cheesy Leek Burgers

February 18, 2013

These veggie burgers are absolutely delicious and a good way to use the leeks that are in season now. They went down a treat with all members of my family who couldn’t get enough. Thanks to my good friends at Bless, from whom this recipe has been adapted.

Ingredients (makes 12 medium-sized burgers)

200g cheddar cheese

250g fresh bread, roughly torn

1 medium-sized leek, roughly chopped

Some fresh parsley and thyme

2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

3 eggs, well beaten


1. Place the cheese, bread, leeks, garlic and herbs in a food processor and whizz them all up together

2. Tip into a bowl, add the eggs and mix well

3. Shape into 12 burger shapes and place on a well-oiled oven tray

4. Cook in the oven at 180 C/gas mark 4 for twenty minutes, turning over half-way through (or you can fry them if you prefer)

Enjoy! I serve mine with baked potatoes cooked in the oven at the same time, veg, and tomato sauce.

    This is the kind of recipe I would never think to make but that sounds absolutely delicious– though I might use oats instead of bread. Thank you!
