Hyperbole Burgers

Recipe name: Best Burgers Ever
Source: Susan @
Servings: 6 Burgers
Cookbook date: July 18
Date prepared: July 15

2 pounds extra-lean ground beef
1 package dry onion soup mix
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
3/4 cup rolled oats

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium high heat and lightly oil grate. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix together. Shape into 6 patties. Grill patties over medium high heat for 10 to 20 minutes.

Tim here. Well as the title suggests the dish didn't quite deliver. To be fair it was a lot to live up to "best burger ever" and I've had a few burgers in my 27 years. While it isn't the best burger it was a good burger, I would even say a tasty burger. Now for the substitutes. The only thing I changed in the ingredients was that I halved the Tabasco sauce. Looking back I think I could have added the amount suggested but Tiffany tends to like the food to be not hot so I played it safe.

Instead of cooking the burger on the outdoor grill we cooked it on the George Foreman. Overall we both liked this dish and will definitively be cooking it again.
