Basic Burger Recipe

By • Dec 13th, 2007 • Category: Burger Recipes

A simple basic burger recipe that provides the base for all other burger recipes. A good place to start. Makes 4 basic burgers.


  • 1 egg
  • pinch of salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1lb ground beef
  • 3 tbs fine dry bread crumbs
  • 4 slices of American cheese
  • 4 burger buns


  • This couldn’t be any simpler. Whisk together the egg, salt and black pepper in a large bowl. In a separate bowl mix the breadcrumbs into the beef using a fork or your hands. Then simply mix the two mixtures together and shape into 4 burgers using your hands.
  • As with most burger recipes you have the choice of grilling or shallow frying your burgers. The cooking time depends on the thickness but for an average size burger it should take 5-7 minutes on each side.
  • Add one cheese slice as soon as you take your burgers off the heat to allow each slice to melt. Serve with your own choice of topping.

    Tasted like a meatloaf…probably because I used seasoned breadcrumbs. I’ll have to try with regular breadcrumbs next time.

    Tried it. Not so good the first time. The second time I added a little ground cumin, onion powder and garlic powder and it was perfect. I received several compliments. Very easy recipe!!

    Does anyone know what I would have to do to make a giant beef patty? Big enough to cover an 18” pizza?

    Same here with the issue over italian seasoned bread crumbs.

    I switched up to regular bread crumbs and used a prefab spice mix (Cumin, ground paprika, salt, etc.) I found at the market and am currently hero of the grill.

    Simple recipe for some awesome tasting burgers. Thanks loads!
