    Turnip greens smoked with salt pork on top. My favorite burgers, which I haven't tried on the egg: 2 thin 5" Patties stuffed with sauteed mushrooms, onions, bacon and feta cheese. Just a dash of allegro right before cooking.
    I have been making burgers this way for years! This is a solid method, and the juices from whatever you put inside are just extra! Also I take a large amount of hidden valley ranch powder and mix it in the beef. Try it, you won't regret it!

    I was in savannah, ga couple weeks ago visiting a friend. He made a burger on his gasser while I was there but he did that hidden valley ranch trick. Was not bad.
    Boom
  • What does freezing a burger or steak before cooking do? I have never heard of that before.

    Firms the burger up so it doesn't fall apart on the grill. I put my burgers rock solid frozen on a quit hot grill.  Great sear marks and medium rare in the middle.  I haven't tried it with steak.

    Made a couple 8 oz umami burgers tonight - fish sauce, garlic powder, fresh ground pepper and diced green onions.  Loosely mixed and loosely packed into patties, froze about an hour then threw on the egg, provolone at the end.  Toasted some bread on egg.  Delicious.

    Sorry no final product pictures.  I was too hungry.

    As I suggested above and you repeated with the exact recipe, Umami burgers are freaking good.
  • *smacks head with palm, why didn't I think of the freezer, I have tried everything else,

    lately my favorite has been homemade dijon mustard, basil and cheddar, 

    just pulled some ground out of the freezer to try the umami burger this weekend,

    @noleegghead I've seen that but this was different. It was literally 100% burger. Guy took bacon thru meat grinder. Pattied up and grilled.
    Years ago when we lived in NE, a friend who owned a pig farm would routinely provide us with ground pork.  Prepared in hamburger style, it was like eating a pork rib burger.  Outstanding. Mixed with bacon would have been OTT!

    Yum.  We buy ground pork now and then mostly for Asian dishes.  I'd like to give it a shot.  Maybe cook low and slow to 140 F internal with a sear.

    I've done the fish sauce thing and don't love it. I have been using finely diced anchovies mixed with the beef, veal and/ or pork for years
