The Classic All-American Burger

By • July 22, 2010 • 0 Comments

Author Notes: This is my mother's burger recipe and it's the only way I've ever made burgers myself. As much as I like to try new things in the kitchen, I've no desire to make any changes to this one. Why mess with a good thing, right? Worcestershire Sauce and onions are the key to good flavor and a moist burger. Hope you like it as much as I do.Lemons and Anchovies

Serves 6+

  • 3 - 3 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • garlic chives, chopped
  • 3 - 4 tablespoons breadcrumbs
  • A Few dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • Garnishes: tomato slices, onions, lettuce, mayo, ketchup, pickles
  • Hamburger buns
  • Sharp cheddar slices
  1. With your hands, mix the top seven ingredients together in a large bowl. Make certain that the onions and chives are distributed fairly evenly in the meat mixture. Arrange into patties. I usually use a half or full measuring cup to evenly divide the mixture. Grill according to preferred doneness and serve with your favorite toasted bun or ciabatta and your favorite garnishes.
