Bulgur Burgers

Servings 4


  • 1 cup #2 medium or #3 coarse bulgur
  • 1 small small onion finely chopped
  • 2 cups water
  • Salt and pepper as desired
  • 1 lb. ground beef


  • Cover and bring to boil bulgur and water, simmer over low heat for 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Mix the cooked bulgur with the meat and other ingredients and knead as you would dough. For smoother blending add water if mixture seems dry. Also dip hands in water frequently to aid kneading. Continue until all ingredients are thoroughly blended. Form into small patties and fry as you would hamburgers. Bulgur Meat Loaf prepare as for Burgers but instead of making patties, mold the blended mixture into a standard meat loaf pan well greased (approx. 9 x 5"). Cover lightly with tomato sauce or steak sauce. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in oven for 20 minutes at 400°. Reduce to 350° and bake another 15 minutes. Remove foil and leave in oven 10 more minutes.
