When making hamburger patties at home, try adding some chopped bell pepper and onion with a tablespoon or two of milk. Mix altogether and fry or BBQ. Makes a tasty juicy burger.

Also good if you add a package of instant onion soup mix to 1 pound of hamburger.(04/26/2006)
To be sure hamburgers are cooked through, I make a hole in the middle on both sides with my finger before cooking so the middle cooks along with the rest. (04/26/2006)
I also add some feta cheese to the patty, makes it even better (04/27/2006)
You can add many tasty things to home made hamburger patties. The other members' ideas are tasty. Salsa is good if you like that flavor, or BBQ sauce, ketchup/mustard or tomato sauce mixed in. All will help keep burgers moist. Try chopped canned mushrooms. Shredded cheeses. Or for something different, experiment. "Think outside the box". For example, finely chopped canned pineapple or something else that might be served with beef on kabobs will give a unique flavor. (04/27/2006)
Ok I know I am gonna spell this wrong, lol, but I'll try it like it sounds. I add a little Worcestershire sauce to mine. I also add fresh garlic and onions chopped up very fine. (04/27/2006)
We buy a product called "liquid smoke". Add it to your raw hamburger, mixing it in well and then cook. It gives it a good flavor. You can find it near the ketchup and stuff at the grocery store. (04/28/2006)
How do you get the patty to not fall apart during grilling? (07/20/2006)
I always add 1 egg for every pound of beef to keep the burgers from falling apart while grilling. (07/22/2007)

Also great if you take some well chopped up pepperon,i not too much, and throw it in with the hamburger. (04/18/2008)
I like doing hamburger patties just like I do meat loaf. I add the bread or crumbled crackers to the raw hamburger, with the spices I like, a lot of time I like garlic and chili powder. Put an egg in and some onion, and sauce. (sauce can be spaghetti sauce or any variety of tomato sauce). Make the "ball" so that it can pass from hand to hand when finished mixing. If it is too juicy add more crumbled crackers, if too dry, add a little more sauce. Then pat out patties. You can also throw in some steak sauce if you don't prefer the chili powder. I love spicy burgers! You can make meat balls in the oven also with this technique, with some sauce over them. So, the basic is for hamburger patties to fry or grill...and for meat loaf, and for meat balls. Yummy, serve with a nice variety of toppings. We love cheese, tomato, lettuce, and onions. (07/10/2008)
