I know, I know... Don't make fun of me. I made these for some friends of ours, and that's what they called them, and the name just kind of stuck :) I came up with this recipe one day when I was just kind of playing around with some ingredients, but this is the best hamburger I have ever had. Including restaurant hamburgers! Seriously this is a recipe you have got to try!
- about 2 lbs ground beef
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Grill Mates Montreal Steak seasoning
- 2 1/2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- Ingredients to go along with your cooked burgers: hamburger buns, lettuce, tomatoes, mayo, mustard, ketchup, etc.
First, if you are going to be cooking with charcoal, get that started. I recommend charcoal because it gives your burger that much more flavor, but gas will work too. Get out a plate or cookie sheet to place your patties on. Combined all the ingredients into a bowl. Now it's time to get your hands dirty, so take off your rings. The easiest way I've found to mix this together is with your hands. So scrunch all the ingredients together until evenly incorporated. Then take a good handful of meat and pat it into a patty.
They will look something like this. Quick tip: You are going to want your patties to be pretty big because they are going to shrink a lot when they cook. So about 2 lbs of ground beef, with all the ingredients added, will make 5 to 6 hamburgers patties. Trust me! They will seem way to big, but if you make them this size they will fit perfectly on your buns.
Take your meat out to the grill and sear on both sides. Then cook according to your taste. About 3 to 4 minutes on both sides is what I do, with the top on so the meat is also getting smoked, and it comes out a good medium to medium well done. Then just serve with your hamburger buns, lettuce, tomatoes, and whatever else you like to throw on there.
