Hamburgers

Do you know that all Hamburgers are sandwiches but all sandwiches are not hamburgers? And all cheese burgers are hamburgers but all hamburgers are not cheese burgers?

2 lbs of Ground Beef
1 large onion
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tbsp Black Pepper
Few dashes of Soy Sauce
Few squirts of Worchestershire Sauce
1 tsp Lawry's Season Salt
1 tbsp Ground green chillies
1 tsp Red pepper powder
1 tsp Paprika
2 tbsp Ginger Garlic Paste
1 pack of Saltine Crackers

Hamburger Buns
Sliced Cheese
Lettuce
Ketchup, Mustard, Mayonnaise,

Fries & Coleslaw



Put the ground beef into a big mixing bowl. Blenderize the onions into a paste and add it to the ground beef.



Add all the spices to the bowl. ( I am sorry about the lighting in the pic.. I know the meat looks horrible)


Grind the crackers in a food processor and make it into crumbs.



Add the cracker crumbs to the bowl.


Mix it well and form it into  1/4 lb size patties that are atleast an inch thick. The thicker the patties, the juicier it would be once cooked.


In a frying pan with a few tbsp of oil, cook them on each side for about 4-5 minutes. Do not overcook. Please ......... do not overcook!!
As soon as you see the color on both sides, its done. Drain on paper towel. Cook what you need and freeze the rest away in freezer bags for another day.


Once, all the patties are done, return them pack to the frying pan and let them stay warm while you assemble the hamburgers.


Out standard fix-ins for hamburgers.


Toast the hamburger buns on a griddle lightly. (I know I am messy!)


Apply Mayonnaise on both ends.


Put a leaf of lettuce, the pattie, a slice or two of cheese (if desired).


The top of the bun and voila. Its ready..
Serve with fries and coleslaw.


I usually let everyone put their own condiments as needed.
Here is a peek inside..


Enjoy!!
