Adding a bit of water to the mixture ensures that the patties stay deliciously moist as they cook to well done.
This is the Test Kitchen's favourite burger because it's so juicy with lots of real beef flavour. It's also the basis for variations.
My dad rarely cooked throughout the winter. Every once in a while he'd make a delicious Scottish classic, such as cock-a-leekie soup, but it was not often. However, when summer came, everything changed. Saturday night suddenly became burger night, and since the grill was involved, cooking the burgers – and naming them – became his manly duty. He would pick just about every condiment and spice out of the cupboard to make these moist, flavourful burgers. Waughburgers were never made the same way twice. The only constant was the heavy use of condiments inside the burger mixture. Eventually the job of choosing and stirring together the condiments for the “sauce” went to me, which I took on with great seriousness. I never needed anything but a slice of onion or pickle on top, but my brother, Duncan, still swears by the addition of a pineapple ring as a topper. – Annabelle Waugh
This burger from The Living Room Restaurant in Calgary makes the best-dressed burger list in Alberta, according to John Gilchrist, a restaurant critic for CBC Radio. Andrew Keen, executive chef and co-owner of the restaurant, swears by extra-lean Alberta-raised Galloway beef, but these patties are tasty with any ground beef. Unusual additions, such as miso, capers and sweet gherkins, give the burgers a complex, full flavour.
In bowl, beat egg and water with fork; mix in bread crumbs, onion, mustard, salt, Worcestershire and pepper. Mix in beef. Shape into four 1/2-...
Serve with your favourite salad.
Bacon keeps burgers moist and juicy. A centre of melted cheese adds a surprise.
Long, oval and soft flatbread, available at many supermarkets and Greek and Middle Eastern stores, is the mega bun.
From cheese and bacon to pickled hot peppers and red onion, any favourite topping is wonderful with these juicy snack-size burgers.
