Pumpkin & Yellow Split Pea Burgers

How good are leftovers? These were inspired by some left over pumpkin from dinner the other night. I simply boiled up some yellow split peas to add to the mixture making sure that they were extremely soft and in my case overcooked. But, you know it worked so I am quite pleased with myself.

Burgers are a great way to do an easy dinner and with the left over patties you can pop them in the freezer and get them out again to reheat for another meal. Winning. This mixture also goes really well as small little balls for the 1-year-old who can then dunk them into yogurt.

Here in Australia we are very particular about burgers and what goes on them. For me I must have beetroot on a burger otherwise it is not right. These days I prefer fresh grated over tinned (unless I have made it of course) which makes all the difference. Other fillings are roasted eggplant, grated carrot, homegrown tomatoes and lettuce along with some hummus or yogurt.

Do you have a favourite burger ingredient that you must have on a burger? Is it cheese?
