Great 4th of July Hamburger Recipes
These are some of the best burger recipes for your 4th of July get together.
2 pounds ground beef
1 egg, beaten
3/4 dry bread crumbs
3 tablespoons evaporated milk
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
- Preheat grill for high heat.
- In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, evaporated milk, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper, and garlic using your hands. Form the mixture into 8 hamburger patties.
- Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill patties 5 minutes per side, or until well done.
Divide the meat into 4 equal portions (about 6 ounces each). Form each portion loosely into a 3/4-inch-thick burger and make a deep depression in the center with your thumb. Season both sides of each burger with salt and pepper.
Brush the burgers with the oil. Grill the burgers until golden brown and slightly charred on the first side, about 3 minutes.. Flip over the burgers. Cook until golden brown and slightly charred on the second side, 4 minutes for medium rare (3 minutes if topping with cheese; see step 3) or until cooked to desired degree of doneness.
Safflower oil, for grill
1 1/2 pounds ground chuck (80 percent lean)
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
4 slices sharp white cheddar
Gently form beef into four 1-inch-thick patties, about 4 inches in diameter. Make an indentation in the top of each patty. Generously season both sides with salt and pepper.
Grill burgers 3 minutes. Flip, top with cheese and grill 4 minutes for medium-rare. Toast rolls face-down on grill until just lightly charred, about 30 seconds.
