Adapted from a grocery store circular. For a fun twist, you can form these into the shape of a hot dog.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1⁄3 cup red onion, diced fine
- 1⁄2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 egg
- 4 hamburger buns or 6 hotdog rolls
- Mix all ingredients (except rolls) in large mixing bowl.
- Form either 4 patties or 6 hot dog shaped links.
- Grill, fry or broil depending on preference, until done.
- Serve with your favorite condiments.
These were interesting! First I have to say that my daughter (sarabug) acted like these were the best thing she had ever tasted. Last night I ate mine with mustard, mayo, cheese (provolone on one patty and southwest pepperjack on the other), and pickles (no bun). I thought they were good, but nothing special. Today I brought a leftover patty for lunch, plain because I was in a hurry, and it tasted really good. Maybe all of the toppings were overkill. I suggest eating this burger plain if you are bunless like me, or maybe just a schmear of mayo on your bread. Some lettuce or tomato might be good. I made these under the broiler because I had accidentally run the grill out of gas (whoops!) and it took about 10 minutes. I will say that I would never try to make these on a grill because they were impossible to flip, but I might put them in the rotation when it is not so hot out to make under the broiler again. The parmesan/Worcestershire combination is quite strong/pungent. I use "real" parmesan rather than the canned product.
The parmesan. worchestershire & garlic combination is a winner - great flavor. I cut the recipe back to 1 6oz patty and that may be the reason that it was a bit dry. It was still excellent flavor! I think the parmesan in the burger draws some of the juice - I will definately make this again. Served with mustard, relish, lettuce & tomato.
Since Sauturdays are our "Burger and Fries Night" I chose this recipe along with Roasted Parmesan Potatoes and both of these recipes together made a great meal.Here is the way that I made the burgers,first of all subbed white onion for the red,and used a blend of parmesan/romano cheese for the parmesan.And I pan-fried the burgers for about 5 to 6 minutes on each side.Topped with lettuce,tomato,and mayo,and I didn't even miss the slice of cheese that I usually use.This was a very moist and flavorful burger.This will be made again,thanks for posting."Keep Smiling:)"
