Burgers - Tasty, Plain and Simple

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Chicagoland Chef du

Fire up the grill! My neighbor treated us to these burgers a couple summers back and from that day forward, this is the only way we make 'em. Even my picky kids love them this way. 10/2011 Since this recipe has yet to be reviewed, I decided to tweak it and dang, much better! Prep time is assembly and resting time before grilling.

We made the burgers, and freezed them raw. Then we cook them on the barbecue. They hold their shape. The taste was great. I used italian dry breadcrumbs. I used the onion flakes, but maybe it would have been better with fresh onion. Thanks Chicagoland :) Made for Bargain Basement tag game
