September 1, 2017
Make this Labor Day a home run
Labor Day – a day filled with food, friends/family, football, and fun. There are tons of things to do around Atlanta during this time of year. The weather has been sublime the past few days as we start preparing for beautiful, crisp fall days. Labor day is a symbol of what’s to come… our favorite time of year! We can attest: some of the BEST food you’ll ever have surround holidays like this one and we have some recipes that will make you the MVP of any Labor Day BBQ you attend/host this year.
Best Ever Juicy Burger
These burgers are juicy and pack a punch of flavor!
2lbs ground beef
2 pkgs (1 box) of Lipton onion soup mix
1-2 Teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
salt & pepper to taste
Place the (room temperature, so your hands don’t freeze!) ground beef in a mixing bowl. Pour both packages of onion soup mix over the beef, and then pour the Worcestershire sauce on top. Mix the beef, onion powder and the Worcestershire sauce together with your hands. Add in the 2 eggs, and the salt & pepper. We always go heavier on the pepper, which helps with the flavor. The eggs will help hold the patties together during cooking.
Form into five or six 3/4-inch-thick patties. Pre heat the grill on high for 5-10 minutes which you are forming the patties. Turn the grill to medium heat, place each patty on the grill and cook the first side for 5 minutes before turning. Do not mash or try to flip the patty while it’s on the first side. After 5 minutes, flip the patties to the other side and cook for another 5 minutes. Depending on your grill, the patties may be brown on the outside, but check the inside for pink. If any of them are red on the inside, continue to cook a few more minutes until the red turns pink.
These are our favorite burgers, because they really are so flavorful and juicy. I don’t think they require any toppings on the bun, but everyone prefers something different. Let us know how you enjoy them most!
