Thumbs up Best Dadgum Hamburgers

Yup, that's the name of my recipe that I saw on line by a different name and lacked my final secret ingredient. I'm not much of a hamburger fan because it always seems to lack flavor. Not these! I'm a fan now! Even my husband said, "Wow. These are really good!"

1.5 pounds of ground meat (I prefer beef for this one but venison will work.)
1/2 onion diced well (I used my Ninja chopper to almost puree it.)
1/2 cup of cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon of basil, oregano, rosemary, parsely
1 teaspoon of soy and Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper

a large spoonful of bacon grease melted. By spoonful, I'm talking like 1/8 cup, maybe less. (The first time I made this I doubled everything and used 1/4 cup of grease.)

Mix it well. Be prepared for flames on the grill.

Are you mixing all the ingredients together including the bacon grease and then making the patties?

I add a 1/4 cup of bread crumbs to hold the moisture in the patties and skip the bacon grease.

Hmmm...you could chop bacon into small pieces and mix in with the burger.

Who doesn't love burgers? I can't stand a week without eating one with some crispy fries on the side.

My husband loves homemade hamburgers so I made some for Father's Day.

This time I used shredded Pepper Jack cheese and 1 envelop of onion soup mix plus 3 cloves of minced garlic. It was amazing!

It is a great recipe. I should note that I followed it vs the following:

Rosemary, onion, and parsley was fresh off the plant at home.
Cut out 1/3 of the bacon drippings (huge flames). You cannot walk away from the grill.

This was a winner with the family and crew and will be used again and again.

Sounds tasty! I normally make burger patties by grinding 2 lbs venison with 1 lb of bacon. I grind it on a coarse plate, hand mix, grind with the coarse plate again and hand mix one more time. I also like to soak in Dales sauce for an hour or two just before putting on the grill.

I'm thinking about mixing in some high temp cheese and diced jalapenos next batch.

I did use it with ground elk. No other meat added. Excellent. Cooks fast. Don't walk away from the grill.

Slow and low with elk/deer/grass finished beef. Fresh herbs (two leaves of rosemary on top of the meat, rosemary is powerful, less is best) I also throw on a couple of juniper berries (less is best) and knock them off halfway through cooking.

Agreed. I love fresh rosemary, but a hint too much is way too much. It's also awesome on a nice grilled beef tenderloin.

Will try the berries on the burgers next time.

My beef and elk preference is always rare. Requires me to cook refrigerator cold meat at high heat to hold the moisture and fats while holding the red center.

Nothing better than a rare Argentina grass fed and finished tenderloin IMO.
