If I had to choose one food to subsist on for the rest of my life, I’d probably choose french fries.
If I could choose two, it’s would be a burger and fries.
And THIS burger is the one that I make week after week. The Husband tops his with cheese. I top mine with ketchup and pickles. The Babe … well, she doesn’t really know what’s she’s missing.
What about you? What’s your favorite way to make a burger?
The Anything But Basic Beef Burger
- 1 lb ground beef 80/20 blend is best
- 1 tbsp dried minced onions
- 1 tbsp dried parsley
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce*
- Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and use hands to mix until all ingredients are combined. Do no overwork the beef or your burgers will be tough and chewy. Form into desired number of patties (I typically make 4).For the grill: Get grill nice and hot (450-500°F) and add patties. Cook for 4 minutes, flip and cook for another 3.For the stovetop: Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add patties. Cook for 4 minutes per side, or until desired level of pinkness.
