As mentioned in a previous post, we had really good success with the beets grown in cow manure. The beets that happened to grow outside the cow manure pile grew slower and did not have nearly the sweet delicious taste that the other beets had. A good way to use the bland-tasting beets is to make them into beet burgers! This recipe may sound strange but these burgers are really good and full of flavor. Here's the recipe accompanied with some pictures:
salt & pepper
~4 T flour
Combine the first 9 ingredients in a medium bowl. Sautee the onion and garlic in olive oil and the add them to the remaining ingredients. Form mixture into patties, adding flour if needed to hold everything together. If the patties fall apart in the skillet, use the flipper to mold the patty; press down on the patty before flipping. Wait several minutes before flipping the burger and only flip it ONCE. If you flip it multiple times, it will probably fall apart. Add cheese for melting if you want.
