When we're having homemade burgers, I don't just make patties of the ground beef. I love to spice it up. Here is a burger with shallots, garlic, celery salt…..hmmmm. I like to season the ground beef and then form it into patties.
1 lb ground beef (I used ground sirloin)
1 medium shallot, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
¼ teaspoon celery salt
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
In a bowl combine the ground beef, shallot, garlic, celery salt, salt and pepper.
Form 2 large or 4 small patties. If you have time you can refrigerate it for about 2 hours.
Preheat a grill or a heavy skillet to medium-high heat, spray it with oil, and grill the patties on both sides until they are cooked to desired doneness.
If you like cheese burgers, place a slice of cheese on top of each patty, or add some crumbled blue cheese and allow to melt.
To assemble the burger
Put the mayo and the green salad on the bottom half of the burger bun, then continue with the burger patty, tomato, onion, ketchup and mustard. Place the other half of the burger bun on top and serve.
