All American Hamburgers

Happy grilling season! Who doesn't love a good grilled hamburger?? So good! And this is a great classic hamburger recipe that I've stuck with for a while now. I like the mixture of spices/seasoning added to the hamburger mixture - it makes for a yummy burger! I use an old Tupperware hamburger mold (circa 1979 - it was my Mom's) to press the patties together and then make an indentation in the middle with my thumb to help the patties keep their shape during grilling.

All American Hamburgers

2 lb hamburger
1 teaspoon Lawry's seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 egg
hamburger buns, toasted
American or cheddar cheese slices, optional
toppings of choice

In a mixing bowl combine hamburger, seasoned salt, pepper, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce, and egg. Mix with your hands until combined. Form the meat mixture into about 12 patties (or less is you like bigger burgers), press an indentation in the middle of the patties with your thumb, this helps them keep their shape while cooking. Place patties on grill and cook until no longer pink inside, about 3-5 minutes per side. Place a slice of cheese on patties during last minute of grilling. Place cooked patties on toasted hamburger buns and top with lettuce, onion, tomato, pickle, and mustard (or whatever you like :)).
