This was definitely drool worthy. Now I know why people come over to his house! I'm not a BBQ type person and propane scares me so I just used our George Foreman grill and kept cooking em til the sides were no longer pink. I made them into mini burgers. The only change I made was to drastically downsize the amount of salt and pepper. It did seem like a bit much so instead I used 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp of pepper for the pound. Oh, I did add one extra thing and thats poking a hole in each patty, throw in some cheese and close it off so its all ooey gooey and yummy when you bite into it. Other than that, no changes. I love this recipe because you don't have to let your meat marinate and can make em immediately, its incredibly easy and its SO flavorful that honestly, condiments are not even really necessary. My husband and I loved em. I will definitely make this again and again. Thank you for the post!
These burgers were great! Excellent flavor. The only thing I changed was using only one fresh clove of garlic as opposed to two...garlic can be pretty overbearing if you use too much. Other than that this recipe is perfect. I had a leftover burger the next day and chopped in up into my mac and cheese (kind of a hamburger helper effect) and it added such a great taste to a boring dish. Awesome burgers!!!
Made this for dinner tonight and nobody in the family liked them but am looking around for other recipes. (not the fault of the recipe) Family not use to fancy meals I guess lol
I gave this recipe to my fiance to make for me, since he is man, he grills *bang on chest*. He absolutely loved them! I don't know if he deviated from the recipe but mine was a little too salty for my liking. But overall, it's good.
This was a quick and easy recipe, with all ingredients readily available in my kitchen, but we really didn't like the strong basil flavor. Will not make this one again.
The basic recipe was fine but I tweaked it a bit for my family's and my taste. I omitted the basil leaves and cut the salt down to 1/4 teaspoon. I added a teaspoon of soy sauce, 1/2 a teaspoon of onion powder and 1/2 a teaspoon of ground mustard. I replaced the minced garlic with garlic powder. I fried it on the George Foreman grill and melted cheddar cheese on the top. Fabulous!
