Best Ever Easy Hamburger Patty Recipe

Sharing is caring!

I love hamburgers… like seriously!  Is there anything better than a sloppy hamburger with a oven steak fries?  Not in the least!

But, I like them to be full of flavor and real meat – so while I will eat burgers at fast food places, I much prefer my own concoction.

The boys have touted it the best ever hamburger and I stepped it up to the best ever EASY hamburger patty recipe!  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

This hamburger goes really well with a side of KFC Coleslaw!

I actually cook my burgers on the stove and my husband asked me how I can tell when they are done.  When he makes them, they tend to fall apart. 

The secret is to leave them alone! 

When the sides begin to lose their pinkness it is time to flip them over.  This typically takes 3-4 minutes on medium heat.  Leave on the other side for approximately the same amount of time and poke the center with a fork. 

Flatten with your spatula to see if the juices run clear.  If they are pink, I continue cooking until they run clear!  We like our hamburgers well done.

You could also use a George Foreman Grill that has a timed setting.  Want help shaping your patties?  I found this nifty tool!

  • 1 Tablespoon Mustard
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar

I love how you mentioned that making your own burger is better than store-bought ones. My cousin recently purchased a grill and we're thinking of hosting a grill night with our family. I was planning on bringing my meat processor but it's old and rusty. I think it's time to buy a new one. I hope I can find a good one soon.

Absolutely! Make sure to put pieces of wax paper between each patty, though. :-)
