Decadent Beef Burgers

Print Friendly and PDF


5 lbs medium ground beef

1 c. onion

1 c. grated cheese (a hard cheese that doesn’t melt too easily is best)

1 c. BBQ sauce of choice (I use The Keg’s, yum)

1 tbsp. coarse salt

2 tsp ground black pepper


Fine dice the onion and add to the meat in a large bowl.

Add the salt, pepper and BBQ sauce.

Form into approximately ¼ to 1/3 lb patties and place in the refrigerator for an hour if possible.

Prepare a dry rub or spice mixture of your choice, or use a store-bought one you like, ex: Montreal Steak Spice.

Get your grill as hot you can and oil it carefully, these are sticky patties!

Before grilling sprinkle with the spice mix and grill.

Note: Because of the cheese and BBQ sauce, the patties will char easily, so keep an eye on them.

Yield: 16 patties

Tip: From my darling daughter, to have pretty cross grill marks on your burger patty, do a quarter turn on them before turning them over. 

I served these burgers with slices of mozzarella, arugula, horseradish mayo, my quick pickled cucumbers and a large slice of yellow onion, but they are delicious served any which way. Bon appétit!
