Foodie Fridays {Burgers}…

Sorry for the late post!  It has been a full day of meeting a great family and working on the website!

So today’s post is all about burgers!  Burgers are probably my favorite meal, after tacos, and after chips and salsa.  Okay, third favorite meal! 😉


  • (1 lb) ground beef, extra lean (96/4)
  • (1/2) green pepper, chopped (optional)
  • (2) garlic cloves, minced
  • Eyeball {Roughly 1 Tbsp} of each:
    • Minced Onion (dried spice)
    • Onion Powder
    • Garlic Powder
    • Basil (this was Raymond’s idea)
    • Chili Flakes
    • McCormick Grillmates Hamburger Seasoning
    • Salt
    • Pepper
  • (1 Tbsp) Oil (I use canola)
  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.  Divide meat according to how many patties you would like.  We made 7 burgers out of 1 lb of meat.  Adding green pepper helps bulk it up.
  2. Grill or broil.
  3. If broil – 5-6 minutes.
  4. Serve on whole wheat hamburger buns, sandwich flats, or english muffins.
  5. We topped ours with smoked gouda cheese, sautéed mushrooms and onions, lettuce, and tomato.

They were delicious! 🙂  Enjoy!

Until next time…
