Best Hamburger Recipe

Grilling is one of my favorite things to do in the summer. There’s nothing better than getting together with friends and family for a big ol’ BBQ. After you make this hamburger recipe, you’ll never go back to frozen patties again. They are SO good! The hamburgers are so juicy and have the perfect amount of flavor. Melt some cheese on top and add lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles (or desired toppings) and you’ll have yourself a delicious burger that can’t be beat!

And don’t forget the sides! This hamburger patty recipe pairs perfectly with my sweet potato fries or baked Parmesan potato wedges. Or if you’re looking for something on the lighter side, try my baked zucchini fries or roasted Parmesan broccoli. YUM! :)

How to make hamburgers

This grilled hamburger recipe is super easy to make and comes together in just a few minutes. Just follow the simple instructions below to get started.

  1. Combine ground beef, BBQ sauce, salt, garlic powder, and pepper in a medium-sized bowl. Mix just until combined with your hands and shape into 4 patties about 3/4-inch thick. Make a well in your patties with your thumb to prevent from bulging.
  2. Place burgers on the grill and cook 4 to 5 minutes. Flip and then cook an additional 4-5 minutes, or until juices run clear.
  3. Serve hamburgers on buns with your favorite toppings.

How do you make hamburger patties stay together?

  • Make sure to use 80/20 ground beef. The fat helps bind the meat together.
  • Some people will use 1 egg with 1/4 cup breadcrumbs to help bind their patties, but I like to use BBQ sauce. If I’m feeling fancy sometimes I’ll use teriyaki sauce. You could even use ketchup. The sauce really adds an extra boost of flavor, while helping bind the meat together so the patties don’t fall apart while cooking.
  • Use a large spatula when flipping, and don’t flip until the patties have cooked 4-5 minutes.
