Homemade Burgers



Spring is in the air and it's the start of grilling season! Time to bring out those grills and get them going! Making homemade burgers are so easy and inexpensive compared to the packaged kind. Plus, you know what you are putting into your burgers and are using fresh ingredients. Once you make these homemade burgers, you will never buy them frozen again!

This recipe makes 9-10 burger patties.

Ingredients:
2 pounds of 80/20 ground beef
1/2 a large onion
1 egg
3 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
3 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1 tablespoon of chopped parsley
1/2 cup of Panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons of olive oil

Kitchen Essentials:
BBQ or grill
Large mixing bowl
Measuring cups
Measuring spoons
Aluminum foil
Baking sheet
Spatula
Cutting board
Knife
Garlic Press

Prep:
Finely chop the onion and parsley and set aside. Run the garlic through the garlic press and also set aside. If you do not have a garlic press, finely chop the garlic.

Line your baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Directions:
In a large bowl add all the ingredients (ground beef, chopped onion, egg, worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt, pepper, chopped parsley, panko bread crumbs and olive oil). Using your clean hands, begin to mix until all the ingredients and incorporated and evenly mixed.


Using a 1/3 measuring cup, roughly fill it with the mixture to begin to make the burger patties.


Using you hands, flatten the mixture to create a round shape. Make a small indentation in the middle of the patty with your thumb. This indentation will prevent the burger from getting a round dome on top.


Place the prepared patties in the aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Once the sheet has been filled, you can place another sheet of aluminum foil on-top of the prepared patties and continue making the rest. 

You can make the patties up to a day in advance and store in the fridge.


Light up the BBQ and let the grilling begin! We strongly recommend that you do not press down on the burgers with a spatula while they are cooking. By doing that you are removing all the juices and moisture from the burger. No body wants a dry burger!!


Cook your burgers slowly and try to flip them the least amount of times. Once they have cooked  to your preference, melt your favorite cheese and place on a burger bun. We love Martin's Potato Rolls! Finish your burger with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
