If you enjoy a good burger and like veal, you'll enjoy a veal burger—it's only a little different than your average burger experience. It's a richer, more pronounced taste, and the meat is tender. These are put together simply with lemon juice, butter, and spices such as nutmeg and black pepper. (You might not think of nutmeg in a savory way, but it pops up in all kinds of recipes that don't involve baking). All of the ingredients come together to add flavor and juiciness to these veal patties.
You can make these burgers easily on a weeknight or freeze them for future use. They're delicious when served in buns along with your favorite burger fixings and french fries. Or you can serve them as patties with a side of noodles, roasted potatoes, and a green salad.
Gather the ingredients.
Combine ground veal, butter, lemon juice, salt, nutmeg, and black pepper.
Shape into 6 veal patties.
In a shallow bowl, mix together the egg and water.
Dip patties into egg and water mixture then into breadcrumbs.
Heat oil in a heavy skillet. Brown coated veal patties on both sides in hot oil; reduce heat and cook for 15 minutes, or until veal patties are done.
Serve as is with potatoes or other side dishes, or as a burger in a sandwich.
Anything you put on a regular ground beef burger, you can put on a veal burger, but these are some of our favorite suggestions.
- Caramelized onions
- Sauteed mushrooms with thyme
- Topped with mixed greens such as baby spinach or arugula
- Add a strong, sharp cheese such as goat, provolone, or even blue cheese
How to Store and Freeze Veal Burgers
You can make these patties and freeze them ahead of time, or simply make extra (double the recipe, perhaps) when you make it, so you have some in the freezer for future meals.
These burgers will keep for a couple of days if wrapped in the refrigerator. Reheat in a hot skillet or serve it cold, alongside a salad.
You can also freeze cooked veal burgers for up to 3 months. Defrost them in the refrigerator and then cook as directed.
