Juiciest Hamburgers Ever
I made these tonight, using my George Foreman grill.
While I don't agree with reviewers who say these burgers TASTE like meatloaf, I do agree that they FEEL like meatloaf when you're eating them; you don't get that hearty, ground-beef chewiness that you have with a more traditional burger made without bread/bread crumbs.
These patties cook up very juicy, it's true, but they are also very smooth, for lack of a better word. Certainly there is goodness, especially if you bump up the seasoning to fit your tastes, but definitely not chewiness (I would not call them mushy, though).
With all that said, my nearly-8-year-old daughter scarfed hers down and declared it was the best burger she's ever eaten, and she asked even before she finished when I was going to make them again. I personally enjoyed the taste, but I would have liked more of a meaty chew. That's just what I expect from a burger. Hubby also commented on the meatloaf-like texture, but had no problems with the taste, and the texture didn't stop him from eating two.
Overall, it's a successful new recipe for us, and I'll make it again. Perhaps I'll scale back the bread/bread crumbs a bit and see if it makes a difference in the texture.
