The Perfect Summer Hamburger

Serves: 4

I had been using variations of hamburger recipes i found on here with no success until one day i made my hamburger meat in the same bowl as my olive oil and herb oven fries. The result was a hamburger so moist and delicious i have been using this recipe ever since. The simple ingredients bring out the flavor in the meat without overpowering it. The recipe uses fresh herbs which can always be substituted for dry if needed.

Total Time:


1 pound lean ground beef (i find 85% lean works best, but have used 93% lean with much success)

fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
salt (to taste)
2 teaspoons fresh parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh chives, chopped
fresh, soft hamburger bun, or rolls
tomato, lettuce, mayo, ketchup, etc. , for fixings

Split into 4 1/4 lb balls and press to 1/3 inch thickness (about 5 in diameter).
