Burgerlicious burgers

Lately I’ve been cooking my way through my favorite cookbook, The Rookie Cook.

This is a simple, well-seasoned burger that you can cook on the stove – particularly if you’re like me and you live in an upstairs apartment with no grill.


  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt (or seasoned salt of your choice)
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • pinch salt and black pepper
  • about 1 pound ground beef*
  • 4 hamburger buns (I used Kaiser rolls here)

*This makes 4 burgers; I made 3 here and saved the remaining meat.

Combine all the ingredients except the meat and rolls in a large bowl, and mix well.

Add ground beef and mix well.

Form patties from 1/2 cup of hamburger mixture.

Cook patties in a non-stick skillet on medium-high heat for 5 to 6 minutes on each side; or you can cook in oil.

Serve with toasted buns or rolls, and toppings of choice.

Makes 4 servings.
