Juiciest Burger You’ll Ever Eat

This recipe has been in my family for over 10 years. They are simply hands down the juiciest most flavorful burgers I’ve ever had.

In almost 7 years running this food blog I’ve never once posted a recipe for burgers.

How is this possible?

Well you don’t have to worry because I’m here to help you make the best juiciest burger of your life!  And I have a few tips to help you make that burger go from a hockey puck to amazing.

I first want to share with you guys that I have used this same recipe since I first got married.  I am not sure where it came from but it was a recipe from a magazine that I kept folding until it finally ripped.

You might all laugh but the biggest problem I had (before I had kids) with this recipe is it calls for 2 lbs of ground beef.  That was too much for my husband and I so I would half the recipe.  But it calls for 1 egg.

So I would mix all the wet ingredients together and then dump half out!  I’m not kidding.  Now I ALWAYS make it with 2 lbs and then freeze 4 of them.

A FEW TIPS:

  1. The first tip to making a memorable burger is in the spices.  Without them the burger can be bland and boring.  There is a nice mix in this recipe.  The cayenne pepper is not overpowering I promise.  People freak out when they see cayenne pepper but I urge you to put it in these burgers.
  2. I know the world is very concerned with lean beef and my next sentence may not be my most popular but I choose 75% ground beef when I make burgers.  You see in order for a burger NOT to be a hockey puck it needs fat.  It’s just the way it is.
  3. The next tip I have is to make a good EVEN sized patty.  I divide the meat visually in 4 with my hands and then I roll the burger in my hands to form a large meatball.  Then put it between wax paper and I lightly press down with my hand and then use a small skillet and apply even pressure to flatten it out.  Works great every time!
  4. Before putting the burgers on the grill let them come to room temperature for about 30 minutes.

Like I said, these burgers have been in our family for probably 10 years or more.  Maybe one day I will embark on another recipe, but for now these are “OUR” burgers and I am happy to share them with you!
