The Best Hamburger Recipe Ever? Taste and See!
Who decides the best hamburger recipe? The eater, of course!
Here are the criteria I choose to determine the best:
If the meat is grassfed and cooked LOW and SLOW, it will have that natural, juicy taste. The health and taste benefits of grassfed meat are becoming well known. Omega 3 fatty acids, CLA , no steroids or hormones, etc., all add to the weight reducing, cancer-busting qualities of grassfed meat.
As to the other fresh and juicy ingredients, look no farther than your own garden. Or if need be, the local supermarket.
Garden Fresh Hamburger
1 egg, best if free-range
Beat the egg. Stir together egg, one tablespoon catsup, the basil, onion salt, pepper, zucchini and bread crumbs. Mix in the ground meat and stir thoroughly. Form into four patties about ¾ inch thick.
Place patties into heavy skillet and broil over low or medium low heat until only the faintest pink remains in center of patties. Turn and brush with catsup once during cooking.
Split and toast hamburger buns. Spread salad dressing over toasted buns. Brush catsup over patties, place spinach or lettuce leaves and patties on buns. Serve while hot.
Is this the best hamburger recipe ever? Taste and see--you be the judge. But as for this hungry man, a “garden-gilded” hamburger has got to be one of the best ground beef recipes around.
