The Perfect Burger
Serving Size / Yield
- 1 small onion (finely grated)
- 1 clove garlic (minced)
- 1⁄2 tsp salt
- 1⁄2 tsp pepper
- 1 lb medium ground beef
- 1 egg
- 4 hamburger buns
- 4 slices of cheese
- lettuce and tomatoes for garnish.
Combine meat, onion, garlic and egg in a medium sized bowl. Divide the meat into 4 equal portions. Form each portion loosely into a 3/4-inch-thick burger and season both sides of each burger with salt and pepper. Place each patty in the center of a precut piece of aluminum foil, and tightly seal the sides and ends, forming a packet.
Heat a gas grill to high.
Grill the packets for 4-5 minutes on either side, for a well done burger let cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
Serve with tomatoes and lettuce.
