My sons wanted hamburgers for dinner. I just purchased a hamburger press so I could make my own burgers and freeze them for later. Fresh is always best but I have been buying frozen pre-made ones for awhile now. I decided to make some but my way. The kids loved them - very flavorful and juicy. I made 8 nice sized burgers and any left over meat mixture can be used for meatballs or meatloaf. Good anytime. Enjoy!

Thanks to the milk and hot water, these are some juicy burgers! Packed with seasonings, these will be delicious at your next cookout. Mustard is an unusual ingredient to add to the actual burger but we loved it. It gave a little zing to the meat. We did chill the mixture for over 3 hours and it really helped the burgers hold their shape. We fired up our gas grill to make these, but they'd be just as yummy using an indoor grill.

How to Make Eileen's Juicy Burgers

Step-by-Step

  1. I use a George Forman grill, never fry my burgers. I heat up the grill for a good 10 minutes or so to have it good and hot.
  2. Get out a large bowl and add all ingredients and mix very well. Chill the mixture for an hour or longer so the patties will hold shape.
  3. Form your meat mixture into good sized patties. I used a hamburger press and make a small indentation in center of burger so it cooks evenly.
  4. Do not press down on your burgers because you'll lose the juices that are inside to make the burgers juicy and flavorful and could cause the burgers to end up dry.
  5. I grilled our burgers for 6-7 minutes on each side or until the pinkness was gone from inside but you can decide how you like yours done. Again, you can fry them but grilling them sure taste better.
  6. Once done, place on your choice of buns. We love onion buns. Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
  7. ***** Tips*****
    Great with salads, mac and cheese and good old french fries.
