Anthony's "World Famous" Burgers

Anthony’s “World Famous” Burgers
From: The Main {Recipes}

Printable Recipe
Hands on time: 5 minutes
Grilling time: 5-6 minutes per side

Makes 4 burgers

Hamburger Patties:

½ Vidalia onion, grated
2 tbsp breadcrumbs
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 ½ lb/680g ground sirloin

4 hamburger buns
Anthony’s Spicy Bourbon BBQ Sauce
And the rest is up to you…Anthony likes aged cheddar and some of his cabbage celeriac coleslaw that I will have to try one of these days.

Form Patties:

1. In a large bowl, combine the hamburger ingredients. Use your hands to combine well and form into 4 patties and place on a baking sheet.

Ruth’s note: I like Bobby Flay’s tip about making an indent in the center of each burger. It prevents them from turning into giant meatballs by the time they’re cooked.

Grill Burgers:
2. Preheat the bbq or grill pan (some of us aren’t lucky enough to have an outdoor grill) and spray/brush the rack with oil and grill burgers over medium high heat, until they are slightly charred and cooked the way you like them.

Ruth’s note: Don’t flip the first time for at least 4 minutes . That keeps them together so they won’t fall apart when you turn them.

Add your favorite condiments and other toppings. I like the spicy Bourbon BBQ Sauce and a double layer of raw vidalia onion slices.
