Do you want thick, juicy, flavorful burgers that stay in one piece on a bun? Look no further.
When my friend first suggested this recipe, I laughed him out of the kitchen.
“That’s meat loaf!” I teased.
Well, it basically is meat loaf, but it totally works. Follow these steps for tasty, juicy, crowd- pleasing burgers.
- 1 lb ground beef
- Worcestershire sauce
- Lawry’s seasoning salt
- 1 egg
- Panko breadcrumbs
- Minced onion or shallot (optional)
- Montreal Steak Seasoning (optional)
Put your pound of ground beef in a bowl in one piece. Shake Lawry’s on it until the entire surface has a thin dusting of salt. Give the meat about 5 shakes of Worcestershire sauce. Crack and egg on the meat. OPTIONAL: Add 1 tablespoon of minced onion or shallot/ Montreal Steak Seasoning.
Mix egg, Worcestershire, salt and meat with your hands. The mixture should be slimy but not liquid. Remember, do not consume raw or uncooked meat or egg products.
Add panko breadcrumbs until you achieve desired dryness. Start by adding 1/4 cup, then mixing. Your burger meat should have the consistency of oatmeal cookie batter.
Shape into burgers at least 1 inch thick.
Grill on any grill or frying pan over medium heat. Grilling preferences vary; I usually go with 4 minutes per side.
Enjoy with your favorite burger fixins’. I like this burger on sourdough bread with avocado, tomato and romaine.
