I prefer the buns lightly toasted and spread with mayo and it tastes particularly gorgeous with Ciabatta buns. Serve with a couple of beef tomatoes slices and some nice relish or salsa.

Sometimes I just like it very simple with just a bit of salt, pepper and maybe a tiny amount of Cajun rub on the outside.

I am starting to make myself hungry.

I like mine with blue chesse in the middle too. We are having hamburgers tonight, dinner at 6:00 P.M. How do you want yours cooked? lol

I'll have mine really "blue" ( seared on the outside and that's pretty much it). Thanks.

Has anyone tried putting dry Lipton onion soup mix into your meat? I think I seen it on TV once, but I can't remember. It seems like the mushroom soup flavor would be good too.

I know it's not a burger, but I love a good hamburger steak and fries with brown gravy and onions poured over the top. Mmmmm mmmmm!

Default Use Butter

If you're looking for a really juicy burger, next time you're getting ready to grill, take your ball of meat, open it up & put a pat of BUTTER in the middle. Make your hamburger patty, and grill to perfection. Learned this trick from Steven Raichlin's BarBQue Bible, or one of his other books. It works: juicy burgers, even if you've got a heathen that wants it cooked so long you feel bad for the poor burger...

Thanks for all your suggestions, and keep them coming if you have more. I made an Ina Garten recipe for hamburgers the other night, and I really liked it, but my husband wasn't that crazy about it--he is a purist that thinks hamburgers should just be beef and some pepper. Anyway, Ina Garten's recipe called for part ground chuck, part ground sirloin, steak sauce, egg yolks and the pat of butter in the middle.

I was reading that sometimes adding cold water or even ice chips to the beef before cooking makes it juicy. Anyone ever tried that?
