With Labor Day coming up I thought it would be a good time to do another grilling recipe. I have had this Grilled Beer Burgers Recipe on the menu for some time now and never got around to making it. The weather here in Upper Michigan has been really nice; the days are hot and the evening cool down really nice- so last night I decided to fire up the grill.
This is another very simple recipe with very little prep time. The egg serves as a binder for the burger, and the beer gives it a nice moist texture. For the cheese I used what I had on hand which was a combination of sliced cheddar and American cheese. You can add condiments to taste like ketchup, mustard or horseradish.
This Grilled Beer Burgers Recipe is really good-for Labor Day if you want to try something a little different give them a try.
1 pound ground beef
4 slices of bacon (cooked)
1 egg (lightly whisked)
4 slices cheddar or American cheese
1 small onion (finely chopped)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup beer
4 Hamburger buns
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
1. Cook bacon till crispy brown and set aside.
2. Mix together the ground beef, onion, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, egg, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mix in the beer until absorbed by the meat mixture.
3. Divide into 4 patties.
4. Grill the burgers to your desired doneness; place a slice of cheese on each burger and close the grill till the cheese is melted.
5. Place the burger on a hamburger bun, then add a slice of bacon, followed by a slice of tomato. Enjoy.
