Best Burgers

These burgers were just something tossed together as a “let’s see how this will work” kinda thing. I had no idea that they’d become so juicy and delicious. If you like cheeseburgers then add sliced sharp cheddar because it’s so much better than American and less salty. P.S. Don’t let the list of spices fool you – burgers won’t be spicy, just moist and tasty; add more for a spice kick.

2 pounds ground chuck
2 Tbsp. chili powder
2 Tbsp. paprika
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. black pepper

Make about 8-9 patties out of the meat and place on a wax-paper lined baking sheet. Mix all the spices together and sprinkle on each of the burgers; spread around and gently press into each patty then turn and do this again. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and place in the fridge until you’re ready to cook them to your liking. I gave them a 4 hour sit and it worked quite well.

A hamburger patty is an excellent, inexpensive investment. I recently received one as a gift and can’t live without it now.
