These garlic and herb burgers are fresh, juicy, fluffy and delicious, and feel lighter on the gut than frozen pre-made “mystery” patties. When you make your own burger, you know exactly what goes into it and can avoid preservatives and chemicals by using quality beef. Plus I pulled the parsley right out of my garden – although I shouldn’t brag. I only have parsley because it beat the odds and grew back this year despite my complete neglect of my herb garden. Now you know the truth. It’s just a really pitiful looking box of dirt in my backyard. Maybe next year I’ll do better ;).

 

Ingredients for Garlic and Herb Burger Patties:

2 lbs ground beef (preferably 80/20 fat content – not too lean)
2 large cloves garlic, pressed or minced
2 1/2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
1/4 tsp salt
pinch of black pepper

Topping and Condiment ideas:

6 burger buns
6 slices swiss cheese
Green leaf lettuce leaves
1 large or 2 medium tomatos, sliced
Sauteed mushrooms (In a little oil with salt & pepper)
Freshly sliced or Caramelized onions
Ketchup and mayo

How to Make burger patties:

1. Preheat Grill to medium/high heat. In a large bowl, combine 2 lbs beef, 2 minced garlic cloves, 2 1/2 Tbsp Worcestershire, 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley, 1/4 tsp salt and a pinch of pepper. It’s easiest to mix the meat with your hands or using a stand mixer with paddle attachment.

2. Divide beef mixture into 6 equal portions and form round patties (Each one was 5 1/2″ in diameter and weighed in at 5 1/2 oz – not that I weighed them all and made them perfectly even…). Push your fingers around the middle of your patty to create a slight well in the center. This is important for an even surface since burgers puff up as they cook.

3. For medium well burgers, grill 6 min on each side with the grill closed (we rotate them 45˚ after 3 min to create fancy grill marks). You know patties are done when you push on the top and juices run clear instead of white. Top with cheese in the last minute of grilling.

    How do you cook hamburgers inside in the stove? I can’t always grill them.

      Hi Dianne, I haven’t tried cooking these in an oven. I would probably use an oven safe skillet like a preheated cast iron, cook the patties on each side for a few minutes and then finish them off in the oven.

    Made your herb garlic hamburger recipe tonight. Both my daughter and son-in-law really liked them. My son-in-law had two burgers and asked me if I bought the burgers somewhere. I said no. I followed Natashaskitchen recipe.
