Sirloin Burgers

We are not really burger people during times other than summer. There's nothing like a hamburger fresh off the grill with some corn on the cob and a drink...or two. They definitely are a quintessential summer picnic food. When Michelle was coming over, I knew that I wanted to make something that could be easily made and eaten so that more time could be spent enjoying each other's company than messing around in the kitchen with a fussy meal.

Even though there was a hint of spring in the warmer air, I still busted out the Foreman grill. Our big grill didn't have any gas and I love to use my tiny grill. These burgers were delicious and are definitely a nicer version of plain old hamburger (think thawed patty) that I will make over and over again.

Sirloin Burgers

1 lb. ground sirloin
2 Tbs. finely chopped yellow onion
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1 or 2 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
4 slices cheddar cheese
4 hamburger buns, split
Sliced tomato, onion, lettuce, pickle for serving
Ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard or other condiments of your choice for serving

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

In a large bowl, mix together the beef, yellow onion, garlic, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Form the mixture into 4 patties, each 3⁄4 inch thick.

Grill the hamburgers directly over medium-high heat, turning once, 3 to 5 minutes per side. When done, no pink should show on the inside and should read 160 degrees on an instant read thermometer. If making cheeseburgers, place a slice of cheese on top of each hamburger during the last 3 minutes of cooking.

Serve the hamburgers on the buns with tomato, white onion, lettuce, dill pickle and condiments.
