My burgers turned out awesome yesterday. Remembered to do the little indent thing this time so they didn't shrink. Eggs, garlic, mccormick's seasoning, salt, pepper and sharp cheddar all mixed in with 80/20 ground beef. Cooked 3 minutes each side for a delicious medium finish.

I use this trick more often for meatballs than burgers, but I like to add fresh grated onion (could dice it up in a food pro, but I just use a box grater) to my mix.  About 1/2 of a vadalia onion per 1.5-2 lb of meat.  It doesn't add too much onion flavor but I feel like it adds tons of moisture and juiciness.

 

Mixing in ground pork as others have mentioned is great, as well.  I usually go closer to 50/50, depending on how much I'm making.

 

Another awesome way to cook burgers is In 'N Out Animal style, especially if you don't have a grill or don't wanna bother mixing tons of stuff into your ground beef.  Use only ground beef and make really thin burgers, season each side with salt and pepper.  Get a skillet really hot with just a little bit of oil, and squirt plain old yellow mustard directly into the skillet, then put the patty down right on top of your mustard.  Repeat when you flip, then add American cheese (can cover for a minute to get the cheese to melt nicely).  Only need a minute or two per side depending on how thin you get them.  Pile two patties on a potato roll (toasted and buttered if you really wanna get fancy) with lettuce & tomato and perhaps some sauteed onions and mushrooms if you like and they are dynamite.

Homemade, grilled kangaroo burgers. 

 

Just a little salt/pepper mixed in, grilled a couple minutes each side.  With a nice bun brushed with garlic butter grilled just a bit with some lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese.  Yeah, it was the tits.

Sounds like something worth jumping on.

If you ever stop in Richmond, when I went to VCU a burger joint called Cary town burger and fries was awesome.

My buddies and I made cronut burgers last weekend on a camping trip and they turned out great. Cronut is the bun, burger, cheese, bacon, egg.

There is an Indy league baseball team out where my wife is from. The Gateway Grizzlies. They have something similar but the bun is Krispy Kreme glazed donuts, burger, bacon, cheese. Yours looks better though.

Clark Burger, next to The Senator Theatre. Wow. Make it a double for sure, but what a great burger.

And they have Poutine!

I went to bacon fest in Easton, PA over the weekend and there's a 50/50 pork/beef burger they sell there that is hands down the best burger I've ever had. Had two of them this weekend.

Have you ever tried the burger mix from Trueth's in Oella (old EC)?  They only sell it on Fridays I think, but it's 50/50 beef and bacon all ground together.  Sinful. 

 

I can never decide if they're better as larger grilled burgers and have the inside super juicy and bacon-fatty or to make thin little patties and press them hard on a skillet like In 'N Out does.

No, never had them but I'll have to give them a try.

Trueth's is a butcher shop, not a restaurant, to be clear.  You buy the ground meat from them (get some steaks as well while you're there) and then make the burgers at home yourself.

Yup. Had a friend who lived down the street from there for years.

When we went to Houston last summer, I had Wataburger for the first time. It was pretty damn good. I told my wife, "If we lived here, Id eat here once a week, for sure" My favorite local burger is from Nacho Mama's. 


Good news! I saw a dog today.

I stumbled upon that place on Gmaps recently. I need to check it out.

 

Had a Five Guys burger "all the way" last Friday. Best FF burger IMO.

Best burger I've ever had was at Hodad's in San Diego this summer. And for any NoVA folks out there, Damn Good Burger in Arlington is excellent.
