Josh's Homemade Hamburger Patties


Today I am sharing my husband's mouth-watering recipe for homemade hamburger patties.  Now, I must tell you that I had to beg him to let me publish this recipe.  Beg!! I owe him big time, but he finally let me share it.  They really are that good. They are better than any hamburger I have ever tasted; perfectly juicy on the inside, and grilled just right on the outside. 


Let me tell you a few tips before I divulge this recipe.  When making the patties, form the meat-mixture into a ball, between 1/4-1/3 lb.  Then, flatten them, but leave them pretty thick.  That will make them juicier and taste better.  Also, do NOT over handle the meat.  Josh made me take notes on that one.  (Kidding.)  But he did emphasize it!  You want your burgers to come out perfectly!  So, follow the steps below, then invite your friends over for the best burgers they will ever have!

Now, my husband has never measured any of these ingredients.  He just eyeballs it and mixes it up, then smells it, and then maybe adds a little extra of something.  So, I stood right beside him with my notebook and pen in hand, writing down how much of everything he put in.  I know some people can cook to taste, and others need exact measurements.  Feel free to add the ingredients to your liking, or follow what I have written down.


Josh's Homemade Hamburger Patties
  • 2 pounds, lean ground beef
  • 2 tbsp. dried minced onion
  • 1-2 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 tsp. onion salt
  • 1 tsp. parsley
  • 2 tbsp. A-1 sauce
  • 1-2 tbsp. worchestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. liquid smoke
  • dash of cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
About a half hour before you make the patties, let the ground beef sit at room temperature.  Combine all ingredients and mix with your hands.  Divide meat-mixture into 1/4-1/3 lb. patties, leaving them pretty thick.  Do not over-mix the meat!  Grill away and serve with your favorite toppings. 

Here is a list of our favorite toppings:
  • Mayo or Miracle Whip
  • Mustard
  • A-1 sauce
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Avocado
  • Crisp Bacon (Josh)
  • Blue Cheese Crumbles (Becky)
  • Sauteed Onion (Josh) or Raw Onion (Becky)
  • Mushrooms (Josh)
  • Swiss Cheese (Josh)
  • More Crisp Bacon (Josh)


Now, I will try and work my magic and get his insanely good Steak Marinade recipe!

These sound yummy! I am going to try them for our family gathering on Saturday, but I am wondering if I can make them early and refrigerate them overnight? Will they turn out as good, or should I wait and do it all on Saturday? Any thoughts would be helpful...Thanks-Toni

A1 is a type of steak bbq sauce and liquid smoke is essence of smoked flavor. Both can usually be found together in the same aisle.
