The Best Beef Burger

I'm usually chicken to make my own burgers because they never taste as good as store bought. That all changed tonight.

The Best Beef Burger
Makes about 8 3oz. burgers

1 egg
2 tbsp water
1/4 c. fine dry bread crumbs (you could probably use quick oats too)
1 small onion, finely diced
1 tbsp dry mustard powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. pepper
1.5 lb ground beef

In a bowl, beat the egg and the water with a fork. Mix in bread crumbs, onion, mustard, salt, pepper and Worcestershire.  Mix in beef (I did this with my hands because I find it easier). Shape into eight 1/2" thick patties, about the size of your palm. They will shrink when cooking so if they look big, don't worry. Mine covered my entire palm (I have big hands). You can cover and store for later or put between layers of wax paper and freeze for another day.

Place patties on the grill (indoor or outdoor) over medium high heat. Cook for about 10 minutes or until no longer pink inside.

Put them on a bun, garnish and eat!!
