Sean's Burgers

Thursday, May 28, 2009

I disliked anything with hamburger my entire life until I was pregnant with my 3rd child. I found myself craving a good hamburger, so I perfected this recipe. Now that I am not pregnant, I’m back to disliking hamburger, but I still love this recipe and often substitute ground turkey or use both.

Sean's Burgers

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1 small onion, chopped
1 egg
1-2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon ketchup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
1 pound ground beef or turkey or half and
6 hamburger buns

6 slices of bacon cooked
1 tomato sliced
Ketchup and mustard

1. Put everything in a large bowl and mix by hand.

2. Form 6 patties indenting slightly in the middle
So they cook evenly.

3. Freeze patties on a cookie sheet with wax
paper underneath.
4. Place in a freezer bag

If you don’t want to freeze the patties you can cook them on a pan or use an indoor grill like the George Foreman. If you try to cook them on the outside grill unfrozen, they will fall apart.

5. To cook frozen just grill them on medium-low
heat until done.

Top with bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, etc…

Yeilds: 6 servings
Note: I always double this recipe so I have enough to freeze.
Great to pull out of the freezer on a busy night!

While I was pregnant I also craved asparagus and oranges.
What are some things you craved while pregnant?


  1. oooh-I think that burger might be a new one. I crave salads and turkey sandwiches. I alternate between these two everyday for lunch.

  2. Crazy, I know, but I craved chocolate ice cream topped with hot salsa, and cigarettes! I have never smoked ever in my entire life! I craved them so badly though, I could taste them even though I have no clue what they taste like!

  3. Absolutely anything spicy. I put salsa and hot sauce on EVERYTHING! I really wanted a ton of meat too!
    My daughter, since she was really little, likes everything spicy, and always eats all the meat off her plate, asking for seconds. Coincidence? I think not!
