Burgers, even not previously made, are a pretty quick weeknight meal, especially if you have an indoor grill like a Foreman or a griddler. Sure, you don’t get that delicious charcoal flavor, but they are pretty convenient and most even have easy clean up with removable plates.
I always search for new burger recipes to try, but this one I came up with just because I happened to have the Old Bay sitting on the counter next to the ground beef. Both ingredients were parts of separate meals, but it just made too much sense to combine them.
Old Bay Burgers
Source: A Cookaholic Wife Creation
- 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
- 1 small onion, diced
- 1 slice of bread, torn into tiny pieces
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 3 tbsp. Old Bay seasoning
- 3 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 tsp. prepared mustard
- 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1. Combine all of the ingredients together in a large bowl.
2. Form into 6 evenly sized patties.
To Freeze: Wrap each patty in a sheet of wax paper and place on a baking sheet. Flash freeze for one hour, then transfer to a sealable bag, discarding wax paper. Can be stored for 3 months.
To Cook Immediately: Heat a grill to high heat. Place the burgers on the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
To Cook from Frozen: Place burgers in the refrigerator up to 24 hours before you want to cook them. Allow them to fully thaw before grilling as listed above.
You could probably go even heavier on the Old Bay seasoning in these burgers. The flavor didn’t come through as nicely as I expected it to, but they were still really tasty burgers. I served them topped with a slice of American cheese, lettuce and tomato.
