Amen. Let's Eat!

It had been awhile since I made homemade burgers so I decided to give them another whirl for some friends who were over for a BBQ this weekend. So glad I did. They were gooood!

2 lbs ground beef
egg, slightly beaten
1/2 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
2 tablespoons fresh minced
garlic (or use 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs (or crushed soda cracker crumbs, more if needed) (optional)
1 tablespoon
Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon
fresh ground black pepper
1 pinch
cayenne pepper (optional)

In a bowl crumble the ground beef with clean hands. Add in the dry soup mix, egg, garlic, breadcrumbs or crushed soda cracker crumbs, Worcestershire sauce and black pepper.

Using clean hands mix until combined, add in more breadcrumbs or cracker crumbs if needed to just hold the mixture together (do not overwork the meat or it will be tough). Divide the ground beef into 6 equal patties (or make 8 small patties).

Using your large finger or the back of a small spoon make a shallow dent into the center of each patty (about 1-inch wide). Place the patties onto a large plate or a small cookie sheet; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 6 hours or up to 24 hours to blend flavors.

Grill or pan fry the burgers as desired until cooked through.
