Extra Special Hamburgers

We had a pool and cookout today. We figured we’d enjoy the 3-day weekend by having about 30 friends over. But rather than serve up plain ‘ol hamburger patties from Costco, I made two different kinds of seasoned hamburger patties. Everyone seemed to enjoy the not-your-typical burger taste. They were especially good with toasted hamburger buns and grilled, caramelized onions. Yum! Here are the recipes for our burgers:

Garlic ‘n Onion Burgers

2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 medium sized yellow onion, diced fine
1 cup bread crumbs
2 tsp. minced garlic
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper

Mix all the ingredients together and shape into 8-10 hamburger patties.

Italian-style hamburgers

2 lbs. lean ground beef
1/3 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, finely chopped in food processor
2 tsp. minced garlic
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper

Combine all ingredients and shape into 8 hamburger patties.

These make some yummy hamburgers!

Happy grilling!!!
