bulger king

How to make BULGAR out of whole wheat berries: soak it, cook it, dry it, crack it.

And I did just that.

Yesterday, we made some bulgar burgers.

Ew, why would you do that to beef?

Nah...it's good and it was cheap.

Remember on many an episode of Roseanne when she'd use corn flakes in her meatloaf to make it go further? It's the same idea, only much better and much healthier. Says me.

We mixed half bulgar, half ground chuck. Steve did a little jig with some bread crumbs, seasoning, and an egg. And voila. Dinner for 3 and it only took a half pound of beef.


They were extremely juicy and packed with flavor.

One of the best things was that the burger didn't shrink into a little hockey puck. It kept its shaped and stayed the size of an actual bun.

Perfect-a-mund-O!

Wait for it....


Ahhhhhhh.

Now THAT is a thing of beauty.

I dare you to try it.

  2. What is it? And where do you get it? If it makes meals cheaper, I'm willing to try anything!

  3. You can buy whole wheat yourself. If you have a cannery close, even better.

    They also sell it at grocery stores. In the baking or cereal isle.

  5. When I was a kid my parents used TVP (textured vegetable protein) to add to things. It made things stretch further. It's made mostly of soy and of course it made my brothers more gassier than they already were. It wasn't very good, but it served it's purpose since times were tough and you had to feed a big family.
