Who doesn’t love a great burger? In our house we love a good burger, and we love when we can get our Canadian beef on sale! On Saturday, my local halal butcher had a great sale on beef, so we stocked up.
Then we had to pick up the rest of the things needed for the perfect burger. In our house that means relish, got to have some relish, tomatoes, mustard, ketchup, and onions. Sometimes when we are feeling a little wild we even add cheese.
So if you had to say what is the burger personality of my house well I would say we are pretty well old school and love a classic burger.
My mom has had me making burgers ever since I was a little girl. My favorite recipe is this family favourite:
- 1kg Canadian lean ground beef
- 1small onion, finely chopped ( we dice this very small)
- 4tbsp fine bread crumbs
- 1egg, lightly beaten (this is your binding agent)
- 1tsp salt
- 1tsp mustard
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
Put the beef in a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix it all together until just combined. This is best done by hand but don’t over-work the mixture or you’ll get a tough burger.
Dampen you hands then shape the mixture into burgers.
The burgers can now be cooked either on a grill, or a non-stick frying pan with a bit of oil. Make sure you pre-heat the fying pan, or grill to a medium heat.
Cook the burgers for about 5 minutes on each side, turning them once only.
And that is my classic recipe. You can serve the burgers in a buns with salad.
