Perfectly Seasoned Homemade Beef Burgers

Total time
Serves: 4 burgers
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
  1. If I'm making 8 burgers, I'll double the recipe and use 1 lb lean ground beef (maximum fat content 17%) and 1 lb medium ground beef (maximum content 23%). This will make for a perfectly juicy burger.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and spices together until combined. Toss the ground beef into the bowl and mix together with clean hands.
  3. Use a ½ cup measuring cup to scoop out enough meat for a ¼ lb burger. Form into a patty and press an indent in the centre of each burger to prevent them from puffing up in the centre and becoming round while they cook.
  4. Place the burgers on a hot grill in direct heat. Cook for 5-6 minutes until you start to see the juices rising to the top.
  5. Flip the burgers and cook on the other side. I like to use a meat thermometer to make sure that it has reached an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
  6. If you're making a cheeseburger, put the cheese on top of the burgers and close the lid to let the cheese melt. Remove the burgers from the grill and let them sit for 5 minutes
