- 1 lb zucchini
- 1 lb 95% lean ground beef
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (almond meal for low carb)
- 1 U clove garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup onion, minced

- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/8 tsp. cayenne or chili pepper
- 2 tsp olive oil

This step is extremely important. Use a box grater to shred your zucchini. Then using a cheesecloth, clean towel, or paper towels squeeze the zucchini until you remove most of the moisture. You will be shocked at how much water comes out. The more you can squeeze out, the better the burgers will come out. I recommend squeezing it out in batches since smaller bunches are easier.
Mix together the shredded zucchini, beef, and remaining ingredients. Form into patties.
Brush the burgers with olive oil and then season with salt on both sides.
Cook in a medium hot skillet for 4-5 minutes per side or grill.
