For the Patties

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • ¼ cup onion minced
  • ¼ cup Panko
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1 ½ tablespoon parsley fresh chopped

For the Sauce:

  • 3 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning

For the Burger

  • 5 slices american cheese
  • 5 slices tomato
  • ½ cup lettuce
  • 5 potato rolls


For the Burgers

  • Combine the ground beef, onion, Panko, egg, Old Bay, hot sauce, worcestershire sauce, mustard and parsley in a large bowl. Mix until combined, but do not overwork the meat or it will get tough.
  • Form into 5 evenly sized patties.
  • Grill over medium high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until it reaches your prefered cooking doneness. Add cheese on top and cook until melted.

Assemble the Burger

  • While the burgers are cooking, lightly toast or broil the burger buns.
  • Whisk together the sauce ingredients - mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and Old Bay. Spread a heaping tablespoon onto the burger buns.
  • Add lettuce and tomato to the burger bun, followed by the burger. Place the top of the burger bun over the burger to form a sandwich.


  • Press your thumb in the center of the patty before cooking to ensure it doesn't puff up while cooking. 
  • Double the sauce recipe to dip fries in as well! 
  • Panko can be replaced with a slice of bread torn into tiny pieces. 
  • To freeze: form patties and layer between sheets of wax paper. Freeze in single layers for at least an hour, and once fully frozen, wrap up and transfer to a ziplock bag or airtight container.
