Banquet Burgers

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by evelynathens

From the Canadian Living Test Kitchen. Real Cheddar cheese and crispy bacon (add extra if you like) make this traditionally Canadian diner-style burger taste even better at home. Serve in hamburger buns. Canadian Living Magazine, July 2005.

We didn't dislike these burgers, but also found nothing extraordinary about them either. Hence, three stars. They tasted like an ordinary hamburger with cheese and bacon on top.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large bowl, beat egg with water; stir in bread crumbs, grated onion, Dijon mustard, garlic, salt and pepper. Add beef; mix just until combined. Shape into four 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick patties. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container and refrigerate for up to 24 hours or freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator.).
  2. Place on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until digital thermometer inserted sideways into centre reads 160°F (71°C), about 15 minutes.
  3. Top each burger with cheese and bacon; grill until cheese melts, about 5 minutes.
