The entire family is sure to love this classic burger recipe. Making your own burger patties is actually super easy! Let me show you how…

Ingredients

Here are a few of the basic grocery store staples that you will need to get started with this easy recipe.

  • White onion, finely diced.
  • Eggs – we’re currently loving farm fresh eggs from the neighbour.
  • Bread crumbs – Panko works great here.
  • Homemade hamburger seasoning or store bought.
  • Worcestershire sauce – dare you to say that three times fast!

Tips and Tricks

  • 1 pound of ground pork may be added to the ground beef.
  • Homemade barbecue sauce can be substituted for Worchestershire sauce.
  • Panko breadcrumbs are our favorite binding agent but crushed crackers may be used instead.
  • Add additional onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper or kosher salt to taste.
  • Store in a single layer or between sheets of parchment paper. Check out this how to freeze hamburger patties post for more.

Serve these on fresh hamburger buns and add your favorite toppings! A great burger is always made better with a side of french fries, pasta salad or caesar salad.

  • Add skillet fried mushrooms, a slice of tomato or lettuce.
