If you don’t like meaty goodness, you need to stop reading right now!  Otherwise, I hope you enjoy this new recipe I’m posting today.

After I had Violet I ended up developing an anaphylactic allergy to nuts and beans – True Story!  Yes, I know my life sucks without PB, lentils and chickpeas; they were staples in my old diet.  After figuring out I had the allergy I soon learned a lot of processed or frozen foods contained soy (you’d be surprised just how many).  So I started making my own burgers and freezing them in large batches.

The great thing about making your own burgers is you can completely tailor them to your own tastes.  When I first started experimenting with recipes I didn’t use egg or breadcrumbs, but since I use lean beef to make them I found they were key ingredients to keeping the burgers moist.  Don’t worry, they’re still pretty meaty.  I’ve also used this recipe with ground turkey and ground chicken.  Not a fan of working with ground chicken, you know what I’m talking about if you’ve cooked with it (it’s actually kinda gross), but I love ground turkey!

Homemade burgers are one of my favourite summer foods.  I love to top mine off with avocado, tomato and red onion.

Ingredients
Servings: 1/4 lb burgers
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl add all the ingredients. I still crack my egg in separate bowl and add it (you never know, I got a bad one last Christmas).
  2. Make sure to remove any rings and get your hand in there and mix away.
  3. Portion and shape into individual patties.
  4. If you're not cooking the patties immediately, wrap individually in cellophane and pack into freezer bags and throw them into the freezer.
Recipe Notes

Always make sure you cook hamburger meat thoroughly (no visible pink inside).  It usually takes me no more than 20 minutes from frozen to cook them on my grill, but that may vary depending on your grill and the size of the patties.
