Now once you have that ground beef, you mix in some onion powder, salt, pepper, dried basil, teriyaki sauce, Italian bread crumbs grated Parmesan cheese, and an egg. The original recipe didn’t include an egg. However, I found it is needed to make the patties stick together with all those added ingredients.

Once you have you meat mixture all combined, it’s time to shape the patties. You can free form them by hand. However, I love to use a patty maker. They help make them all consistent in shape and size. This helps them all cook the same on the grill too!

If you don’t need all of the patties, just place waxed paper or parchment paper in between them and place them in a freezer bag to freeze for later. Now, I love these on the grill but you can always cook them inside in a skillet too.

Once you get those patties cooked, top them with a slice of American cheese and stay on the grill for a minute to make that cheese nice and melty. Serve this up on buns with your favorite burger toppings. This recipe will definitely elevate your grilling game!
