Burger Patties…cooked to 160ºF

Burger

Everyone loves a juicy, full of flavor all American Burger. Right? Right!

I do. I’ve spent the evening cooking up hamburger patties that are a.) Cooked to 160ºF, b.) Still Juicy and full of flavor c.) Are just darn good!

1 lb burger
bread crumbs
egg
salt
pepper
honey mustard

Properly thaw the 1 lb of ground beef. Properly means not in a sink full of hot water. One of the proper ways to thaw burger is to thaw over night in the refrigerator. This is a slow process but is the best way to thaw. You can also put the burger in a bowl full of COLD water, and turn the water on in your sink to a slow trickle, and place the bowl under the faucet. The convection of different temperature water currents thaws the burger in about 15 minutes.

Beat the egg, salt, pepper and honey mustard in a small bowl. Heat oven to 400ºF.

Once the burger is thawed, place in a large bowl, add bread crumbs and egg mixture and mix. Place onto a waxed paper sheet and cover with another sheet of waxed paper. Use a roller and roll out until it’s about the same thickness all around, roughly a 1/4″. Then remove the top layer of waxed paper, fold the burger in half and then cover with the waxed paper. Lightly roll over the burger again. Remove waxed paper, cut burgers into squares.

Usually, I use the outdoor grill to sear the burgers, but being’s as it’s -10ºF outside, I’m not going out, starting the grill, and standing out there waiting on burgers to sear. I used a pan on the stove. Drizzle a little oil into the bottom of a pan and slowly heat on low, then turn to medium for a few minutes and then turn to high. I place a couple burger patties into the pan. I try to get as many in the pan as possible, so I use a big pan. Grill for 1 minute. Flip and grill for another minute and a half. The patties should be lightly browned all around. Move from pan to an oven safe dish and place in oven for 2 minutes. Check with a meat thermometer, on thickest part of burger. Internal temperature should be 160ºF.BurgerStoryboard

Top a bun with your favorite burger fixings, and enjoy! My choices? Caramelized Onion Dip on the bottom bun, Burger Pattie, Pickles, Spinach, and garlic pub cheese and ketchup on the top bun. Enjoy!

  • Someone else is using home-raised beef too, I see. The package gave it away!

    Sounds great- I can’t ever make my burger that way anymore- the BF wants to just taste the beef, so no more breadcrumbs, eggs or anything else. 🙁 Tho the beef we raise is pretty damn good on its own!!

    • Hiya!

      Our is good as well, and usually I don’t always add extra’s to it either. I love the taste of home raised beef! 🙂
