The Perfect Burger Recipe

Mouth-watering and friends and family approved! Simple, common ingredients and prep make for the best bbq-ed or stove-cooked beef patties anyone I know has ever tasted!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients (except the buns) in large bowl. Mix thoroughly with hands. Be sure to wear disposable latex gloves or well-cleaned rubber gloves while mixing to protect against e.coli and other bacteria, and to prevent cross-contamination with the rest of your meal!
  2. Stove-top: Form mixture into 8 patties. Fry at medium-high heat, turning regularly, until juices are no longer bloody (a few minutes per side, more depending on the thickness of your patties.)
  3. BBQ: form mixture into 6 patties. Grill at medium heat for a few minutes on each side, or until patties are firm and no longer pink throughout.
  4. Add a burger to each bun, garnish as you like, and enjoy!

Excellent! So juicy and full of flavor! I did make one change and didn't use the oats due to carb content but they still turned out really awesome!

Made for PAC Spring 08 I disagree with who ever rated this before. I thought the burger was very tasty and had a lot of flavor. I should have made my patties a bit bigger but they were delish! The only thing I did different was using fresh garlic. It was very tasty thanks a bunch!
