These burgers freeze extremely well, and you can cook them on the grill directly from the freezer.   Adding chopped vegetables and cooked wheat berries increases the nutritional value and fiber content.  Vary the type of barbeque sauce according to your taste.

2.5 pounds ground beef or ground turkey
2.5 cups cooked wheat berries *
2.5 cups chopped veggies (onions, carrots, peppers)
10 ounces grated cheddar cheese
2 1/2 cups barbeque sauce
2 1/2 cups dried bread crumbs

* Wheat berries are the whole, uncooked kernels of wheat that is ground to make bread.  To cook, add 2 cups dry berries to 7 cups water.  Boil until berries are just tender, about 45 minutes.  Drain and use.  2 cups dry berries makes about 3 1/2 cups cooked berries.

Mix ingredients together in a large bowl.  Shape into patties.  Freeze or refrigerate until ready to use.  To cook, bake in a hotel pan in a 350 degree oven.  Or these burgers may be cooked on the grill.

This mixture can also be used to make meatloaf or meatballs.  Add one egg to the meat mixture and then shape.

Yield:  25 – four ounce burgers
