Man-Burgers (Half-Pound Hamburgers)
These are very popular in my house. Simple seasonings create a great tasting burger. Be sure to use barbecue seasoning (dry spice blend) not barbecue sauce.
- Ready In:
- 4 lbs ground beef
- 3 -4 teaspoons liquid smoke
- 1⁄4 - 3⁄8 cup barbecue seasoning (such as KC Masterpiece BBQ seasoning)
- 8 hamburger buns
- 8 kraft american cheese slices
- sliced dill pickle spear (Claussen)
- sliced tomatoes
- romaine lettuce leaf
- sliced onion
- In large bowl, combine ground beef, liquid smoke and barbecue seasoning. Mix well.
- Divide the mixture into 8 equally sized balls. With your hands, flatten the ball and gradually mold into patties (use your fingers to press and shape, ensuring that the patties do not fall apart). Form into large patties, slightly larger in diameter than the buns (approximately 6-inch diameter). As the hamburgers cook, they will shrink to the right diameter for the buns.
- Grill until done. Top with cheese slices.
- Toast hamburger buns on grill until golden brown.
- Build hamburgers with preferred toppings. Enjoy!

I cut this recipe down to 1 1/4 lbs of burger and so used 1 t. of liquid smoke and 1/8 cup of BBQ Spice. A nice alternative to the standard burger. Since the weather wasn't the best here, I opted to use my cast-iron skillet. I think the grill would have been a better choice to bring the flavor combo out, but DH and DS didn't complain.:-) Made for HolidayTag.Reply
