9-5: Modern-Style Hamburger

Simply Delicious has provided a plethora of burger recipes for me to try, like 9-15: Peppercorn Beef Burgers and this recipe, 9-5: Modern-Style Hamburger. I like to cook these on the electric griddle because I can cook the entire batch off at once and they all cook evenly.

9-5 Modern-Style Hamburger_Page_1I tend to prefer burgers that are dinner sized. These burgers are more like sliders or a thin lunch style burger. 🍔

9-5 Modern-Style Hamburger_Page_2The tip was very relevant this time. The burger meat must be mixed very quickly because it gets runny really fast. I put my bowl in the refrigerator to chill the beef mixture before I formed the patties. ❄

My mix was runny so I set it aside to chill and washed my hands. After a few minutes, I formed the patties and set up the electric griddle.

(Editor’s note: It’s important to note that green onions and chives are different things–we didn’t have any chives and this seemed the closest substitute.)
