1 1/4 pounds
1 1/2 tablespoons
dried basil, or to taste
ground black pepper
hamburger buns, split
Update: Posted photo I topped with melted mozzerella and sauteed mushrooms and a big slab of tomato. So yummy! Original review: This were good, and great with a big slab of tomato and lots of mayo. However, I like my husband's spice mixture that he puts on his burgers a tiny bit better...thanks for letting me try something different!
burgers were okay, except it seemed like there was too much Worcestershire sauce...
These grilled burgers were excellent. I sub'd 2t garlic powder for the garlic salt and chopped some white onion into the meat. Yummy recipe, AlissaB24!
These were very juicy. Usually when I make burgers they come out dry, but not these. I did not have any dried basil but I did have fresh so I used that instead. Everything else I kept the same. Thanks for sharing your recipe!:)
I used this recipe, but stuffed the burgers with mozzerella cheese. Yummy! And the kids loved them too.
I rate this burger four stars instead of five simply because I have to leave room in my ratings for that recipe that brings about shouts of rapture with periods of dizziness. That said, these were excellent burgers. I followed the recipe exactly other than I had a little less beef on hand than it called for. Very juicy and very tasty... and very easy to make. Added melted pepper jack cheese on top and served them in the traditional way.
If you like basil as I do, this is an excellent grilled burger. I did however reduce the amount of basil to one tablespoon. A friend of mine, opal~/~dragonfly from Our Table Talk dot com in her review and picture suggested topping it with sauteed mushrooms,melted Mozzarella and tomato. Since you have to top your burger with something, I followed her suggestion and it was delicious!
We enjoyed these and they are really easy. Play with the amount of basil to get what you want. The basil seems to dry it just a bit. These will be a staple here.
