If you love fresh burgers hot off the grill, you MUST try this recipe for gourmet hamburgers. I adapted it slightly from Ina Garten’s, and it is fantastic. The egg yolks give it a richness, and the Worcestershire Sauce adds flavor. If it’s too mushy to form into patties, you can add some breadcrumbs (I use gluten-free) but don’t overdo it, or it will taste more like meatloaf than hamburgers.

If you eat gluten-free as I do, try these on Udi’s gluten-free hamburger buns! Lightly toasted, they’re more like a kaiser roll than a squishy burger bun, so they hold up well to lots of nummy toppings.

In this picture, I served my burger with Cotswold cheese, red onions (why are they not called purple onions???) and lettuce with a side of red peppers.
