I grew up known this as a German hamburger, but my mom taught me to coat the patties with flour. This gives it a nice crust and adds to the flavor.

I'm not the best burger griller you'll meet, but this recipe is helping to change that! I tweaked a bit by not using a potato, dicing the onion and frying it and then adding it to the recipe. I prepared the rest of the recipe as is, substituting garlic powder for salt. This recipe yields a moist burger, even when cooked through. Thank you for posting.

Since finding this recipe, I've tried several variations. First, I used a half and half mixture of ground chuck and pork sausage, making meatballs instead of hamburger patties. To this I added Paula Deens meatloaf topping (to 1 cup of ketchup add 3 tablespoons prepared mustard, 6 tablespoons brown sugar and stir). My wife, who is not particularly carnivorous, still makes yummy noises whenever it is mentioned, and I must admit I don't care as much for "plain" burgers anymore. I've been compiling a book of tried-and-true recipes for my daughter, recently married. This is definitely going in! Thank you, Christie.
