Hearty Backyard Burger Recipe
One of my favorite parts of Summer is grilling. I have finally got to the point where my husband is not the only grill master in this home. He use to be the only one who would grill our meals, but as I watched him tend the grill, I got more confidence to cook over an open flame. You see, I once set the grill up in flames years ago and that really traumatized me, but thankfully, I have overcame my fears.
This past weekend, we celebrated the beautiful weather by cooking some brats and burgers. It was the perfect weather to crack open an ice-cold beer, so the Hearty Backyard Burgers recipe from Giant Food Stores was perfect. Their yummy burger recipe features hamburger meat that is seasoned with actual light beer, chopped onion, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce.
Since my local Stop & Shop (part of the Giant family of food stores) was having a great sale on all the BBQ fixings we’d need, we stocked up on condiments, produce, and meats for Fourth of July. I love that their sales were amazing, and that I can plan ahead with their helpful recipes. My kids love shopping here too because they always get a free cookie at the bakery.
Once we got home, I portioned out my meats and got started on creating the Hearty Backyard Burger meat. Unlike traditional burger recipes, this one called for beer which I initially thought was “different”. However, after tasting the final product, I have to say that I will be recreating this Hearty Backyard Burger again! We loved the flavor combination the garlic, onion, and beer provided the juicy meat with.
Want to make this Hearty Backyard Burger? Here is what you”ll need:
- 1 1/2 lbs of 80% hamburger meat
- 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
- 2 garlic cloves finely minced
- 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup of light beer
- salt & pepper to taste
- Lettuce, red onion rings, tomato for dressing
- Whole wheat buns
Mix first six ingredients until fully combined. Using a burger press, form your beef patties.
Make sure your tomato, lettuce, and red onion are prepped, set aside.
Once grill is heated add the burger patties, and cook until they are no longer pink in the middle (160 degrees F.)
Enjoy these burgers with an ice cold glass of beer, or lemonade as I did. They also go perfectly with some fresh cut watermelon, and chips. I don’t know about you but I love chips with burgers! We also added some sharp cheddar slices to a few of our’s which made them even tastier!
You can find this recipe along with several other tasty burger creations on their official recipe center. There is a creative burger option for everyone so be sure to visit the Giant Recipe Center online today!
