Plain ground beef burgers DEPEND on using quality beef. That means not super lean, and not super fatty, and not so old that it's turning colors (even safe colors.) If you have good, fresh beef, this is a great recipe to use. If you have cheap beef, low-fat beef, beef mixed with turkey or chicken, or old beef, then you're best off using a flavorful recipe that will mask those things. Many chefs suggest not using any seasoning other than salt and pepper--not even eggs or bread crumbs! Why people would vote this one down for being, essentially, "too basic", is beyond me--it's the very first burger recipe most people learn to use!
