A juicy hamburger recipe that actually makes burgers that aren’t dried out and are packed full of flavor is easier to make then you think!
There are tasty hamburgers, and then there are TASTY BURGERS!
If you’ve seen the move Pulp Fiction then you might appreciate the phrase, “That’s a TASTY burger!”. There’s nothing better than going to a little hole in the wall hamburger joint and biting into a burger that tastes like…well, how a burger is supposed to taste. When I think of these types of hamburger places, I think of a seriously juicy burger.
It’s hard to make a homemade hamburger that tastes like a Big Kahuna burger. Burgers made at home are usually a little dried out. We’ve had burgers at BBQ’s before and they literally just added salt and pepper to the hamburger meat – they were really bland.
I want a seriously juicy hamburger!
The burgers I make are juicy and full of flavor. When we serve these burgers at our backyard barbecues, they are always a hit. Friends rave and wonder how they are made. I could be a jerk and tell them the recipe is an old family secret, but it’s really not. My mom did introduce me to it, but that’s it.
Ready to make a mouthwatering burger that will have your friends and family asking for another? Before you start making this recipe, here are a few helpful tips:
WHAT INGREDIENTS WILL I NEED TO MAKE THIS JUICY HAMBURGER RECIPE?
Hamburger, egg, bread or panko, dry onion soup mix.
WHAT DOES ADDING EGG TO HAMBURGER DO?
The egg is a binder that holds meat together. When you use lean meat, as it’s cooking, it will start to shrink. You need a binder to help the meat stay together. That’s also one of the reasons that meatloaf recipes call for eggs.
WHAT OTHER SEASONINGS CAN I ADD TO THE HAMBURGER?
To kick your burgers up a notch, you have to add some type of seasoning. Here are a few ideas of things to add to your ground beef mixture before you make it into patties:
Bread crumbs or panko
Bacon (chopped up)
OUR JUICY HAMBURGER RECIPE HAS AMAZING FLAVOR!
Not only is it a juicy hamburger, but the flavor is phenomenal. The onion soup mix is all of the flavoring the hamburger patties need. No other seasonings are necessary.
Fix ’em up!
Add your favorite fixins’ to your burger and you’ve got a little piece of heaven on earth in your hands. You can even throw a fried egg on top – that’s the new thing these days and it’s pretty darned good. Plus it goes well with the bacon that I’m sure you’ll want to add. You’re welcome 🙂
