“This recipe came from my local newspaper. I haven't tried it yet but sounds great. Burgers to be cooked in a skillet or under the broiler or even the barbecue for diehard barbecuers. You can double the recipe and freeze the patties in a freezer bag for up to one month.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Break egg into a large bowl; whisk with water until smooth. Add breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, mustard, salt and pepper. Mix well to blend flavours.
  2. Crumble beef over egg mixture, with a wooden spoon, mix beef and egg mixture just until combined.
  3. Shape into four to six patties, each about 3/4 inch thick.
  4. Set a skillet that will hold burgers comfortably in one layer over medium-high heat. Brush bottom of skillet with oil. Heat until oil is just shimmering. Arrange burgers in skillet. Fry until brown and crisp on bottom, about six minutes per side.
  5. Remove burgers to a plate topped with towelling and pat off any visible fat.
