Please don’t get offended that I am sharing this with you.
I used to believe hamburgers were ground beef patted into a disk and thrown on the grill. Then I met my husband.
The first time he took ground beef, dumped it on a bowl, and threw in ingredients at random I was more than skeptical. Slowly over the past nearly eight years he has perfected his recipe.
Let me tell you- it is amazing. I absolutely love his burgers. They are full of flavor without being in your face about it. The oatmeal helps it stay moist on the grill and the tabasco gives it just a suggestion of spice.
An absolute fave around here. Wanna know what I love even more? This is entirely his own doing. No recipe to base it off of. No replication from something he had this one time. When I asked him about it he said he simply added what he thought would taste good.
And of boy does it taste good.
So while you cannot have my husband you can have these delicious burgers. Either come over and we will make them for you or make them yourself. Either way I promise you will never make plain burgers again.
One year ago today: Sausage Ricotta and Spinach Stuffed Shells.
Hamburgers (makes 4 burgers)
1 lb grass feed ground beef
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon tabasco
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup rolled oats
Dump all of the ingredients into a bowl. Mix well. With your hands divide into four portions then pat into burgers about 5 inches across. Cook either in a pan or preferable on the grill till your desired doneness. If you like top with cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, mustard, and ketchup. Enjoy summer.
