Ultimate Burgers

I think I have the perfect everyday burger.  This is the pantry staples, no non-sense burger that can also be a meatball.   It’s simple, the kids love it, and thanks to Lisa, I have a freezer full of them for BBQ emergencies.  I bought a package of ground beef at Costco and made a bunch and froze them.  Why haven’t I thought of this before???  Such a smart idea.  This recipe can easily be doubled, tripled or quadrupled.

If you make them as meatballs, you can freeze them once cooked for simple weekday lunches.

Dilek’s Ultimate Burger/Meatball Recipe

  • 1 lb medium ground beef
  • one small onion grated
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp salt and pepper
  1. Mix all of the above in a bowl, try not to overmix, apparently it makes for tough burgers.
  2. Shape into four burgers or make into golf ball sized meatballs
  3. Grill on BBQ
  4. If making as meatballs, they can be cooked in the oven at 400F for about 15min.

see so simple.

    Yum! – I love your meatballs, especially because you bake them, so I will have to try the burger version. I promise, now that you’re freezing your own patties, you will never buy boxed patties again – they taste like paper once you get accustomed to home-patties. I freeze my patties with wax paper between each patty and I bbq them from frozen – the wax paper makes it easier to separate the patties from frozen. If it were my Mom, she would take it one step further and freeze them individually on a cookie sheet, and re-package with wax paper stored in zip-lock baggies.

    I used wax paper as well, but I had a hard time separating them,and actually got a shard of ice in my eye. So next time, I am freezing them individually, I’m with your mom on that one!
