Gourmet Hamburgers

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.

  1. Oh, that sounds wonderful! We’re going out to dinner. When I said “we” I thought my husband meant the two of us. After I booked a babysitter for tomorrow night, he said, “I thought we were bringing the kids with us.”

    I guess taking the kids to my Mother’s Day dinner would be ok. 😉

  2. Ohhhh we use that recipe all the time. Just don’t tell you guests there is a pat of butter in each burger! 😉

  3. Yum…these look good. We went gluten free this month, but we did not really enjoy the buns. I think I am going to try to make my own…just havent wanted to invest in all the new “flours” needed for gluten free baking!
