Homemade Yummy Hamburgers

I think my family could eat hamburgers a few times a week. They love them, a lot. Sadly we order in way to much and in an effort to stop I am trying to accommodate our desire for those yummy hamburgers. These hit the spot!

It was a sort of throw together hamburger here goes...

one pound of ground beef or another other ground meat

2 eggs

1/2 an onion chopped finely

steak spice


shredded parm cheese

Italian dressing for the local restaurant here...this dressing is amazing. any Italian dressing works

I also use quick oats to make the meat go farther, I think it was about a cup

Mix it all together and form your patties

I heated up the BBQ and cooked them until they were no longer pink and I added some cheese to them.
A little hint for the BBQ. I was told that meat, that is not heavy with sauce, will 'release' from the grill when it's ready to flip. So basically that means that you shouldn't have to scrap your meat off the grill it will naturally let go and be easy to flip. This generally works for me, unless, I have a lot of sauce on the meat then it does not always work or if I have not cleaned my grill very well.

I served this on the flax buns with sweet potato fries and roasted broccoli

I'll be making these again soon, they were very good. The kids loved them as did the husband.

  1. I've never heard of using quick oats before! Can you taste them! I would love to do that. Not only does it make them go farther, but it adds fiber too. I'm just worried my hubby would wrinkle his nose :)

  2. We are a *could eat homemade burgers a couple times a week* family too. Yours looks delish!!
