The Best Hamburgers!
I'm sharing a quick, easy recipe that I've seen lately on a commercial for mayonnaise. I believe it was for Duke's Mayonnaise, which is what I use, so it caught my eye.
They show a person adding mayonnaise to ground beef to make moist burgers. Made sense to me! So I decided to give it a try.
First, I pulled out my go-to spices for burgers. Well, actually, the Steak 'N Chop is new (thanks, Ruthy!). The other two I've used several times.
Next, the main ingredient (well, besides the beef). :) We really like to use the mayo made with olive oil. And I've always used light mayonnaise. So this one is perfect for us.
I added the spices and a big blog of mayo--probably about 3 TBS (maybe more) in one pound of lean ground beef (I buy the 93% lean). Mix well, pat out burgers with a dip in the center, and place in a hot skillet or on the hot grill (my grill died, so I'm grill-less right now). I like ground beef well done, so mine are sometimes dry. But these weren't!
Serve on a nice soft bun with your desired toppings. I was already eating when I remembered to take a photo! They were really moist just like the commercial said. I loved it! I plan to add mayo from now on.
