The hamburger is mixed with onion powder, basil, teriyaki sauce, salt, pepper, bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. I divided the meat into three equal parts and used my hamburger press to form the patties. I am going to double the recipe this weekend and freeze some of the patties for later.
I used ground beef with 75/25 mix. I think burgers need a little more fat in the meat when you are grilling them. They tend to fall apart and dry out if you use really lean beef. That is just our experience.
We love to grill burgers, but I also like to cook burgers in my cast iron skillet. They only take a few minutes to make in the skillet. You can see the instructions here: How to Cook Burgers in a Cast Iron Skillet
Best Burgers EVER!
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp dried basil
- 3 Tbsp teriyaki sauce
- 2 Tbsp Italian seasoned bread crumbs
- 1 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
- 3 slices American cheese
- 3 hamburger buns
Mix together beef, onion, salt, pepper, basil, teriyaki sauce, bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. Divide into 3 equal patties (I use a kitchen scale for this).
Grill to desired doneness. Top with American cheese, cook for a minute, until cheese is melted.
Serve on hamburger buns.
