    Best recipe for cooking a burger?

    Burger King went public today. Maybe we can drop their stock trading price a few bucks by finding the best recipe for a burger.

    Meat, condiments and toppings, bun, method of cooking?

    Mine:
    Lean ground beef, with a pinch of garlic powder and a pinch of cumin per #. (1# makes 4 patties at our house.)
    Cooked on a hibachi, with Kingsford briquettes, started with an electric starter, not fuel. Don't put the patties on till ALL the coals are ALL white.
    Medium or mild cheddar cheese, 1/8" slice.
    1 leaf of iceberg lettuce.
    1 very thin slice of white onion.
    a glob of Thousand Island dressing (on the patty, not on the bun) any brand.
    Bakery roll, whole wheat, with or without seeds on it.

    Kind of boring and traditional, but it works for me!

    BK sucks. Another fine example of people paying a company to poison them with continously unsafe and carconagenic foods.

    mix chopped cilantro with the ground beef before you form it into patties. Yummers.

    I don't buy ground b eef I get the prefabbed beef patties because I go through it so slow that I would have to chop it up, freeze it , then thaw it when Im going to use it which s is soo time consuming and requires planning the meals out, which never happens as some days/weeks I'll go all day with only eating one real meal a day.

    I know that feeling...we had a BBQ and my friend brought the ground beef for twenty people, so that's why it worked so well.

    Yeah. Cooking good food is a pain in the ass for one person. I can never buy grapes because they'll go bad before I can eat them all. Same thing with salads. All meat has to be frozen otherwise it'll go bad, too. It seems kind of a waste dirtying up 3 pots and an assortment of cooking utensiles to make myself dinner when I can just make a turkey sandwich.

    Yep. Except with the grapes. If I buy grapes from Wal-Mart I can usually have them eaten in under 1 week which is about all they are good for

    i like to add garlic, onions, and spicies to the meat before forming the patties. once it's on the grill i'll slap on a coating of bbq sauce and some cheese. and of course the buns need to be toasted.

    Wow. I buy from either Albertson's or Reasor's (local chain) and their grapes start turning after 3 days.

    Hence my rant with Wal-Mart versus local / most other food chains. Every single time I buy vegetables and fruit at a local food chain it almost invariably spoils in 1/3 to 2/3 the time that its supposed to last. And I usually had to pay alot more money for this fruits and veggies that last a very short period of time.

    Yes my freezer stays well stocked, usually because I raid Karldar's fridge and freezer quite frequently

    My parents freeze their bread. I'm not sure why. They go through it like 10 times faster then I do and I don't freeze mine.

    Well, it depends. If it's a nice fluffy rye bread, I won't freeze it as it's gone in 2 or 3 days. But if it's some loaf of sandwich bread, I'll freeze it. Sometimes it'll be gone in a week, sometimes it'll be there for a month and a half.

    I start with ground round.

    Make a mixture of 1 part salt, 2 parts ground black pepper, 4 parts crushed red pepper, and 2 parts dehydrated onion. This is my burger seasoning. Mix this into the meat before cooking. I tend to make aobut a 1/4cup of seasoning for about 8 quarter pounders.

    Now, the only way to prepare these truly magnificent burgers is over a mesquite wood fire....get out your grill, and git 'r done!

    Serve with cheese of course....nothing but Muenster will suffice.

    And for the side, garlic mashed potatos, and some greens.

    I like my food spicy, so the recipe is a little on the hot side. The reason for dehydrated onions, is they "rehydrate" in the burger's own juices, and since they do not have moisture of heir own, they also do not cause uneven cooking like fresh onions do.

    If you want a little more spice, get rid of the crushed red pepper from the seasoning, and put some Thai Chilis in place...be careful though....those little suckers have bite!

    ground beef
    quarter pound of sweet pork sausage for every pound of beef
    half a white onion, diced
    anaheim pepper, diced
    garlic, one clove per pound of beef
    oatmeal to keep the patty together

    mix

    cook over grill to taste though medium rare is best
    throw a slice of pepper jack cheese across the top
    place on bun with Chard, red onion and jack daniels BBQ sauce.
    eat three, drink beer, ride the calories off tomorrow

    Exactly how I do it minus the BBQ sauce. However, it sounds good. I think I'll try it.
