May is National Hamburger Month. With Memorial Day coming up and nice warm weather, it makes for the perfect time to head outside and light up the grill. On average Americans eat about 3 hamburgers each week! Here are three of our favorite hamburger recipes to stimulate your palette.
-1/4 cup onion soup mix
– 2 pounds ground beef
– 2 tablespoons Worchester sauce
– 1/3 cup chopped mushrooms
– 1 cup Swiss cheese, shredded
– 1 large potato, shredded and peeled
Preheat the grill on high heat. Place the mushrooms, cheese and potato in a bowl and mix together. In another bowl combine the ground beef, onion soup and Worchester sauce. Make six patties and place on a plate or tray. Use your hand to make a large pocket in each one. Place the potato, cheese and mushroom mixture into the pocket. Pinch the pocket closed with your fingers. Cook on the grill about 5 minutes on each side.
– 1 pound ground beef
– ½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
– 2 teaspoons ketchup
– 1 large egg
– 6 slices of bacon
Heat the grill on high heat. Place the cheese, egg and ketchup in a bowl and mix together. Put the ground beef in the bowl and combine. Make six patties. Wrap a piece of bacon around each burger. Use toothpicks to secure the bacon onto the burger. Cook each side for 5-6 minutes until the bacon is cooked and the burger is well done. Remove the toothpicks prior to serving.
