Jim's Famous Hamburger Recipe

We made these when we were trying to use up things from the fridge and freezer. They were simple to make and the rosemary gave them a great flavor. A little different from just regular burgers thrown on the grill.

Jim's Famous Hamburger Recipe
simplyrecipes.com

1 lb hamburger meat
2 heaping tablespoons of chopped fresh rosemary leaves (not the stem)
2 Tbsp A1 sauce
Salt and pepper to taste (perhaps half a teaspoon of each)
Buns
Lettuce
Tomatoes, sliced
Onions, sliced
Avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
Mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard

Mix the rosemary and A1 sauce into the hamburger meat, distributing evenly. Add salt and fresh ground pepper. Form out the hamburger patties. If the meat is low-fat, you may want to add some grapeseed oil or olive oil to the mixture, or after the patties are made (but before cooked), rub some oil over them. Place on a hot grill or grill pan.

If you are indoors with a grill pan, be sure to use your stove fan. If on grill pan, lower the heat to medium high. Grill on one side until you can see the juice begin to run at the surface. Flip over and grill on the other side, again until you can see some juice coming through. If you wish, grill the buns on remaining grill surface. Onions can be either served fresh with the hamburger or sautéed a little in olive oil.

Serve burgers with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, avocado, mayo, ketchup, and or mustard. (For the low-carb version skip the bun.)
