Over the winter, I was craving (during my pregnancy with my daughter) hamburgers. I didn't want store-bought, I wanted a nice homemade, hand-pressed burger. I also wanted simple and easy.
I went to the Lea and Perrins website and did a recipe search and found this recipe for Mini Meatloaf Burgers. They were a hit! Pregnancy craving was satisfied and even my hubby liked them. I've been making them this way ever since. I even use the same recipe when I make meatloaf or meatballs. YUM!
Today, when I made burgers, I made a couple of changes to the recipe.
Here's the revised recipe:
Mini Meatloaf Burgers
1/4 cup Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce
2 tbsp ketchup
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef*
1/4 cup onions finely chopped
2 tbsp quick cooking oats, ground*
In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients. Add salt & pepper if desired. Shape into patties.*
* The original recipe calls for 1 lb. of ground beef, making 4 patties. I increased the meat, keeping measurements of other ingredients the same. I was able to get 7 burgers from the mixture.
The original recipe also calls for 2 tbsp. of plain breadcrumbs. I usually use Italian Breadcrumbs because that's usually what I have in my pantry. This time I was all out and didn't have time to make my own, so I used quick cooking oats. I measured out the 2 tbsp. and poured them onto my cutting board and gave them a quick chop. Worked perfectly!
My husband cooked them on the grill tonight, but I've also made them on the stove using a grill pan. Great either way! Less clean up for me when hubby grills them!
