Sometimes, I just want a good hamburger, you know? I don’t do fast-food burgers anymore, and I’m rarely impressed with eating hamburgers at a restaurant (at so-called “burger joints”). And I don’t think I’ve ever even had a lower-fat version of a hamburger at a restaurant, so a burger “out” is an extremely rare event for me.
So, when I crave a burger, I go back to my version of my mom’s hamburger recipe. Whenever I buy ground beef, I always buy an extra pound so that I can make a batch and leave them in the freezer… Then I have burgers available when the mood strikes. And these are always better than what I can get out – definitely my favorite!
Adapted from Mom’s recipe
Grill to desired doneness. Or cook in a pan on the stove (I use my Calphalon Sear nonstick saute pan).
Serve with your choice of bun and toppings.
**Note** Patties may be frozen (individually-wrapped in plastic wrap – see pictures) for up to 3 months and placed directly on the grill (removing plastic first, of course!).
