    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    I cooked these patties for a Fund Raiser and served over 260 persons, both young and mature. They were a tremendously big hit with all.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a large mixing bowl, mix together ground round, beaten eggs, onions, soda crackers, garlic powder, salt, pepper and barbecue sauce. Mix until well incorporated.
    2. 2
      Weigh out hamburger patties to 6 - 7 ounce each.
    3. 3
      Press together and flatten to about 3 1/2" in diameter or use a mold.
    4. 4
      The patties should be about 3/4" thick.
    5. 5
      Using a round wooden spoon handle (about 1/4" round), make a hole in the center of the hamburger pattie.
    6. 6
      In a frying pan over medium-high heat, heat olive oil.
    7. 7
      Place 3 patties into the hot oil and fry for about 2 to 3 minutes, the hole will begin to close.
    8. 8
      Turn patty over and continue to fry for about 2 to 3 minutes.
    9. 9
      The hole that was made in the pattie will fill in when the hamburger is cooked through properly.
    10. 10
      Check for doneness to make sure there is no pink showing.
    11. 11
      NOTE: If the burger mixture does not hold together when squeezed, add some milk and mix to blend.
    12. 12
      Serve in a nice large bun that is warmed and buttered with a spread of mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, a slice of sweet onion, a slice of a large tomato, and a leaf of lettuce.
    13. 13
      A slice of Swiss cheese layered on the burger patty is great.
    14. 14
      A pickle of your choice adds an additional touch.
    15. 15
      Fry some mushrooms and spread some over the top of the bun.
    16. 16
      Fried caramalized onions are a good added touch.
    17. 17
      This makes a fantastic hamburger.

      Fantastic! I made these as directed, ate one and froze the rest (raw) for other times (I knew there would be other times, lol!). I used Kraft Hickory Smoke barbecue sauce and loved the idea of the hole - I've always just made a dent in the center before. This worked really well. I also made Acadia's Mushrooms & Onions to go with these since you suggested onions and mushrooms - and I love big messy burgers! Thanks Uncle Bill for yet another great keeper. Made for Alphabet Chef Tag.
