DIRECTIONS

  • Lightly oil grill& heat BBQ to medium.
  • Whisk egg in a bowl& add next 6 ingredients.
  • Add any of the “stir-ins” that appeal to you.
  • Crumble in beef& using your hands or a fork, gently mix together.
  • Handle the meat as little as possible – the more you work it, the tougher it gets.
  • Gently shape (don’t firmly press) mixture into burgers about ¾ inch thick.
  • Using your thumb, make a shallow depression in the centre of each burger to prevent puffing up during cooking.
  • Place burgers on the grill, close lid& BBQ until NO LONGER PINK INSIDE, turning once, about 6 – 8 minutes per side.
  • An instant read thermometer should read 160F.
  • Don't abuse your burgers by pressing with a spatula, pricking with a fork or turning frequently as precious juices will be lost!
  • Tuck into a warm crusty bun& add your favourite toppings.
