If you're searching for a flavorful dinner recipe for your family, consider this innovative ground meat patties recipe. Its regal twist is sure to captivate all meat enthusiasts. Plus, it requires only one special ingredient. This ingredient is affordable and easily obtainable and significantly benefits the body, particularly the digestive system.

How to Make Ground Meat Patties Both Juicy and Crunchy?

These regal ground meat patties could be an exciting variation and a perfect alternative to traditional meatballs. Instead of using soaked bread, add ground flaxseed and a small amount of butter to your meat mixture to create juicy, tender, and firm patties. Uniquely, flaxseed breadcrumbs are also used to provide added crunchiness.

By substituting classic breadcrumbs with flax seeds, the patties gain more flavor and nutritional value. (Flaxseed is prominent in natural medicine and is known for its numerous applications, particularly aiding digestive health). Remember to grind the flax seeds yourself, as pre-ground versions may oxidize quickly.
