These simple, delicious grilled burgers are made with fresh garlic, a little grated onion, and a few teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce.

Serve these flavorful hamburgers on grilled or toasted buns with your favorite potato salad, sliced tomatoes and onions, dill pickle slices, and condiments. They make delicious sliders, too!

I've included some variations and spread ideas below the recipe.


What You'll Need

  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds ground beef (85% to 90% lean)
  • 1 large clove garlic (or 2 small cloves, pressed)
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons onion (grated)
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

How to Make It

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and blend well. Shape into 4 to 6 hamburgers. Cover and chill until you're ready to grill.
  2. Grill to desired doneness.
  3. Serve with hamburger buns, condiments, and toppings, along with potato salad or other summer sides.
