Grilled Meatloaf Burgers

I made these again today but added carrot, yummy!!

Tonight's dinner was delicious!  I had thought it would be nice to come up with a flavored hamburger instead of a plain old hamburger, and even better if I could incorporate some veggies into the patty.  I used some leftover shredded red cabbage and shredded zucchini, Carrots would probably be good too, but I was just short on time.  So here is my recipe for what I am calling Grilled Meatloaf Burgers.  I actually made the leftover meat into a mini meatloaf and poured a sauce over it and baked, it was good but not nearly as yummy as those burgers!!  Maybe that's because when I think of summer I think of grilled food, so I gravitate towards it.  At any rate these were awesome, we topped them with some pre-made guacamole and wrapped them in layers of Romaine lettuce leaves, Mmmm, yummy.  Hope you enjoy them to.  

*Oh and as usual please feel free to halve the recipe I just have a large family to feed.*  

Kale chips and Meatloaf Burgers with the addition of carrots.

Grilled Meatloaf Burgers

3-4 pounds of ground beef
2 cups shredded zucchini
3/4 cup shredded red cabbage
1 TBSP onion powder
1 TBSP garlic granules
1 TBSP Coconut Aminos
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. ground white pepper
2 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. sea salt
2 eggs

Combine all of the above ingredients and mix well with your hands, form into balls and then smash into patties and  grill until done.  Top with your favorite garnishes and enjoy.

To make it into a meat loaf, I just formed a small portion of it into a loaf shape and placed it in a pie pan. Mixed 1/2 cup tomato sauce, 1 tsp honey, pinch of salt and pepper,  a few splashes of Franks hot sauce and about 1/4 tsp garlic powder and onion powder.  Pour over your meatloaf and bake at 325 degrees for about an hour (depending on the size of your loaf and your oven you may need to change the baking time).  Just be sure to bake until it's done.  I think this would be a great winter alternative to the grilled burgers, but for now I would suggest grilling them :-)
