Here at home, we enjoy preparing and eating the best hamburger recipe we can find and we like to try different types of hamburger recipes. Whether we are firing up the grill for barbequing or we are making our burgers while cooking them in the oven, we like to try new things. Maybe you and your family do as well. If you love burgers, you and your family should experiment with different types of hamburger recipes just to see what is out there and to find your most favorite recipe so you can make it again and again.
Experiment with different types of Hamburger Recipes
You can adapt hamburger recipes just like you can any other type of recipe. You can use different meats and vegetables to make your own burgers at home. Take out what you might not like and substitute them with ingredients you do want to eat. Another thing to consider is the types of buns you serve with your burgers. For instance, will you use store bought burger buns or will you make them yourself?
Either types of buns are great with homemade burgers, but if you really want to make an impression as well as enjoy some good eating, make your own homemade burger buns. For instance, onion gravy burgers will go well with cheese burger buns, onion buns, mushroom and onion buns, whole wheat buns and so much more.
Recipe for Onion Gravy Burgers
What You Need
- 1 pound hamburger or ground beef
- ½ cup crushed crackers
- 1 envelope onion soup mix
- ¼ cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1 can sliced mushrooms 4 ounce
- 1 ½ cups water
- 2 Tablespoons flour
- ¼ teaspoon basil
- ¼ teaspoon oregano
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- 4 buttered and toasted hamburger buns
How to Make It
Using a large mixing bowl you will add the hamburger or ground beef, crushed crackers, ½ envelope onion soup mix, milk and egg. Mix with your hands to combine all the ingredients until well blended. Divide this meat mixture evenly into 8 pieces and then roll and shape those 8 pieces into burger patties of about ½ inch in thickness. Flatten the burger patties out a bit after forming them. Saute the burger patties on both sides until they are brown. Set aside until needed.
Using a medium size mixing bowl you will add the remaining ½ envelope onion soup mix, sliced mushrooms, water, flour, basil, oregano and garlic powder. Combine until well blended and then pour this mixture over the burger patties. Increase heat to high and stir continually while bringing the mixture to a boil. Allow to boil for about 2 minutes and then reduce the heat to low. Cover with lid and allow the dish to simmer for about 20 minutes, while occasionally stirring to prevent sticking and scorching.
Butter and toast the hamburger buns. Serve the burger patties over the toasted buns while pouring the sauce over each half of the hamburger bun.
