While going through my recipe page and looking for ideas for dinner (it’s handy to have a blog), I realized that I’ve never shared my homemade burger recipe. How could I have missed that? It’s one of our most used recipes in the summer. My mother taught me to make burgers like this years ago and it is always a big hit at barbecues.
If you’ve never made homemade burgers before, YOU NEED TO TRY THIS. It is completely different than store bought burgers and less expensive than the ones in the freezer aisle. You can add in your own spices, but I thought I’d share my favourite flavour combination for a perfectly seasoned beef burger.
For each pound of beef (4 burgers), you’ll need:
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp seasoning salt
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
If I’m making 8 burgers, I’ll use 1 lb lean ground beef (maximum fat content 17%) and 1 lb medium ground bee (maximum content 23%). This will make for a perfectly juicy burger.
My mother uses and awesome burger press which makes it even easier to make the patties. It was definitely was handy when we once had to make 48 homemade burgers for a birthday party.
