Best ever homemade burger


For years my dad has been making his own burgers, affectionately dubbed, “Tommy Burgers”, they’ve always been a staple at family BBQs and events.  A good, homemade burger patty is hard to come by, many times they end up dry and bland.  Yesterday, for our Memorial Day celebration, we decided to take a stab at recreating the infamous Tommy Burger.  They were fantastic (as expected).  For added flavor, we spiced ’em up with garlic aioli, cheddar cheese and truffled mushrooms and served it on a buttery brioche roll.   Get ready to be wowed, this isn’t your average burger.  Here’s how to make ’em…


Ingredients //
1 lb. 80/20 ground beef
3/4 cup yellow onion, chopped
2 slices Italian bread, torn into small pieces
1 egg
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Directions //
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients.  It works well to squish the mixture with your hands.   Form the mixture into four patties and refrigerate, covered in plastic wrap, for a least an hour, up to 24 hours before grilling.

  1. Don’t forget to make a small indent with your thumb in the center of the burger before putting it on the grill. This will ensure the meat plumps nicely and cooks evenly throughout the burger. Also never press down on the patty while its on the grill, this will release the precious juices which give the burger it’s great flavor. – From the Grillmaster 🙂
