How to make it

  • Blend all ingredients by hand. Shape into 6 oz balls. Shape into patties about 4-1/2 inches in diameter by 3/4 inch thick.
  • Press the center of the pattie down to about 1/2 inch to make a depression in the middle.
  • Cook on medium hot fire to sear the surface quickly. If you have a high rack move burgers to it to bake out the interior. If not use indirect heat at one end of the grill.
  • Serve immediately with favorite condiments!

    Hop.. 80/20 beef is 80% lean meat. It is a crock. Hamburgers need fat to melt and burn off in the fire to make smoke. This is a tribute to my wife who thinks I may die from too much fat. Cripes I weigh 159 pounds. But use whatever ground beef you normally use. Don't sweat the small stuff.

    This looks delicious! I love Dugger's suggestion, it would kick this burger several knotches.

    I don't comprehend "80/20" beef, lean to fat content?

    Oh, yes indeedy, I agree with the thousand island dressing - when I was a teen, I worked at Knotts and the best burger integrated this dressing.

    Use 80/20 beef, Black Angus is particularly good. I prefer portabello mushrooms but others are ok too. For the onions I also have a preference, Vidalia. The cheese can be any of several types. Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Pepper Jack, Mozeralla. Pick your favorite or mix them. Make sure to use coarsely shredded cheese, it holds together better and gives a better presentation.

    Serving Ideas: There are of course all of the usual condiments. A couple we use that are probably not normal... Honey Mustard or Thousand Island Dressing make for a different experience.
