Recipe: Build-A-Burger

Build A Burger


wpid-20130204_194041.jpgIt was build-a-burger night at our house. I made hamburger patties from scratch and lined up an assortment of delicious toppings. My husband and I like different things on our burgers and that’s just fine. We both loved how they turned out.

Homemade Burger Patties (4 – 1/4 lb patties)


1 lb ground beef, thawed
1 tsp Dried Minced Onion
1/4 tsp Dried Minced Garlic
1/8 tsp Pepper


Lightly mix all ingredients together. Shape into burger patties and cook on a non-stick skillet or griddle for about 10 minutes (5 per side) or until the meat is throughly cooked.

Assemble your burgers using whatever delicious ingredients you desire. I cooked our burgers on the griddle while I cooked up some bacon. My bacon finished first so I wiped away most of the bacon grease from the griddle and used the space to lightly toast our potato buns.

Wife Burger

My Delicious Burger: Toasted buns, Mayo, Catchup, Lettuce, Tomato, Burger, and Bacon!

Husband Burger

My Husband’s Delicious Burger: Toasted Buns, Mustard, Catchup, Burger, Blue Cheese, Avocado, Tomato, and Bacon!

Here are our two burgers. My burger is on the left and my husband’s burger is on the right. Which one do you like better? I also put blue cheese inside my husband’s burger patty which he loved!

  1. You make everything sound so easy! Which is great for someone like me who is hopeless in the kitchen. Haha. Guess this can also go on my to-try list!

    • I’m glad I’m able to simplify cooking for you. I wasn’t always skilled in the kitchen. It took practice and guts. Now I’m not afraid to try new recipes or techniques. My mom is happy that I’ve come a long way from making boxed mac-n-cheese for dinner twice a week 😉
