Are you ready to build the most scrumptious, delicious hamburgers
you've ever had before in your life? Are you just looking for a new
way to make a burger? Something a little more creative? Well, you're
in luck because I'm about to show you how to design your own burger
that suits your own specific taste. Follow along, it's real easy
NOTE: This recipe IS meant to be tinkered with!
Any amount of Ground beef (I prefer 80/20)
Then gather whatever else you want
to put in it.
this particular batch to be spicy and sweet so I will also be adding:
Crushed Red Pepper
You can put almost anything into a burger, from peanut
butter to fresh salsa to cheese. Experiment! What do you usually
add TO your burger? Throw in some diced onions, peppers, even
STEP 1 - Wash
your hands and your countertop and plop a brick of your favorite
thawed ground meat down on it. (Ground beef is being used
STEP 2 -
Flatten and spread the ground hamburger meat so there is more
surface area exposed.
STEP 3 -
Add the egg along with whatever other ingredients you will
be using. In the above picture I have added the egg, Tabasco
sauce, worcestershire sauce, and a generous amount of crushed
red pepper. No bread crumbs yet.
STEP 4 -
Begin mixing all of the ingredients into the meat by folding
the hamburger meat over itself and working it together with your
hands. Fold and press.
STEP 5 -
Continue kneading the hamburger meat mixture until you are
satisfied that the ingredients are evenly distributed.
STEP 6 -
Flatten the hamburger meat mixture against the counter once
STEP 7 -
Lightly cover the top of the hamburger meat mixture with breadcrumbs
and then mix it into the meat in the same way that you just
did the other ingredients. The amount of breadcrumbs will vary
from batch to batch depending on the amount of liquid ingredients
you add. The idea here is to get the meat to a consistency where
it holds together really well but is not overly wet or dry.
When you can work a piece into a tight ball and plop it down
on the counter without it deforming too much or breaking then
you've got the right mix.
STEP 8 -
Work the hamburger meat mixture into a symmetrical 'ball'.
STEP 9 -
Split the ball up into equal sized portions. These will be your
patties so decide how big you want your burgers to be. You
can do this by hand or with a large knife. I find the knife
is easier to get a good separation with.
STEP 10 -
Take each hamburger meat portion and work it into a tight ball.
Cup the meat between your hands and squeeze it as hard as you
can to pack it together tightly.
STEP 11 -
Once you have a tight ball of meat in your hand, slowly work
it between your palms into a flat, patty shape. If the edges
start to split, use the crease in the center of the palm of
your hand to 'pinch' and work them back together. I always
make more than I am planning on immediately cooking, so the
extra hamburgers can fit between sheets of wax paper and then
into a freezer bag to be frozen for later.
STEP 12 -
Cook up some of these burgers using your favorite method,
and serve on a toasted bun with the condiments of your choice.
Mmmmmmm. I generally either use my trusty George Foreman or the
Wow, was that some easy stuff, huh? Go ahead an experiment! Questions?
