Basic BBQ Burgers


Making hamburgers is one of those things that most would just assume is easy.  6 years ago, I tried making my soon to be husband burgers by just shaping the ground beef in to a patty.  That didn’t taste the best, but it worked ok.
Then I asked my mom how to make burgers.  She said something along the lines of “I just use some egg, bread crumbs, onion soup mix, and seasonings.”  Well, I tried that too…..and I could never get the proportions right.
So, I went searching for a recipe.  I found a recipe that I liked but I have spent that last 3 years or so, perfecting it just how I like it.  I like my burgers to not be overly seasoned.  I think the yummiest part of eating a burger is all the fixin’s you put on them.  You don’t want an overly powerful burger to hide that.
I used Ranchline beef again.  It is so yummy!  And I was amazed that these burgers did not shrink when I cooked them.  That is sign of really good meat.  Check out their website, it is so handy that they ship right to your door.  They also have a great special going on for the 4th of July right now.
I like to use my mixer to make these.  I do not like the feeling of raw hamburger.  YUCK!
Delicious burgers ready to go on the grill.  NUM NUM
This picture is before we added all the yummy fixin’s.  I like mayo, katchup, lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles on mine.  Heavy on the mayo-katchup combo.
