“Once you make these, YOU WILL NEVER MAKE HAMBURGERS ANY OTHER WAY! They are loaded with flavor and even with a whole wheat roll, they will melt in your mouth! Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm YUM! Just as good as Fuddruckers!”
4 burgers

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb hamburger (optional -Organic, Grass Fed, Beef)
  • 1 large onion, chopped 1/4-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (more if you like!)
  • 1 12 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • salt & pepper (start with 1 tsp salt & 1/2 tsp pepper)
  • 2 cups fresh breadcrumbs (4 old bread slices in Blender until crumbs)
  • 4 whole wheat rolls, sliced in half


  1. 1. Chop Onion into 1/4" pieces (slice hashmarks into onion without going all the way through, then slice down - super EASY!).
  2. 2. Place Onion in skillet with Olive Oil - saute 5 min until transparent.
  3. 3. Meanwhile put all other ingredients into bowl and mix with hand until well blended.
  4. 4. Add sauteed onions (you could wait a bit to let them cool down on plate - but I just put them right in).
  5. 5. Mix again until well blended.
  6. 6. Set George Forman Grill (outdoor grill with dome) on #4 for 10 minutes to pre-heat. Or set your grill on to whatever you cook hamburgers.
  7. 7. Divide Meat mixture into 4 pieces.
  8. 8. Mash each pieces between hands until you get a patty that is 4-5" diameter and 1/2 inch thick (this is important!).
  9. 10. Place each patty on preheated grill.
  10. 11. Set timer for 5 minutes.
  11. 12. Turn pattys and set timer for 3 minutes.
  12. 13. Add cheese to patties and set timer for 2 minutes.
  13. 14. Have Whole Wheat Rolls ready:
  14. Toast in toaster to warm up.
  15. Brush both sides with Olive oil.
  16. 15. Take burgers off grill and place on bun bottoms.
