This post was originally written in the summer – when burgers are a staple – but that’s not to say you can’t whip up some of these super-juicy, cheesy, meaty, savoury best burgers whenever the mood strikes.

Some of the best parts of summer (for me) are the smells….
chlorinated pools, fresh cut grass, barbecues smoking, coconut sunscreen, the crisp, clean air after a storm…
I love all of them.

Creating those smells requires a bit of work though, so since barbecue season is upon us, I thought I’d make up a batch of my Dad’s hamburgers – aka: Best burgers EVER.

This started out as my Dad’s recipe – but then he went all “super-spicey” on me to the point that the girls and I can’t eat his anymore.

This is the non-colon-scorching recipe that I’ve evolved;

Best Burgers Ever – hands-down, without-a-doubt, awesomeness

You will need:

Best burgers ever, homemade hamburgers, homemade hamburger patties, cheesy burgers, backyard burgers, best hamburgers

I don’t usually follow a recipe – I do it by “feel” – if the meat seems too loose, add more breadcrumbs, if it feels too dry add another egg or ketchup or mustard.
It’s about the flavours YOU like.

Directions:

Best burgers ever, homemade hamburgers, homemade hamburger patties, cheesy burgers, backyard burgers, best hamburgers

Best burgers ever, homemade hamburgers, homemade hamburger patties, cheesy burgers, backyard burgers, best hamburgers

Best burgers ever, homemade hamburgers, homemade hamburger patties, cheesy burgers, backyard burgers, best hamburgers

Look at this scrumptious deliciousness!

I use just over a half cup of meat per “best burgers” patty.
This should give you a 6oz burger (before cooking).

Best burgers ever, homemade hamburgers, homemade hamburger patties, cheesy burgers, backyard burgers, best hamburgers

Best burgers ever, homemade hamburgers, homemade hamburger patties, cheesy burgers, backyard burgers, best hamburgers

Best burgers ever, homemade hamburgers, homemade hamburger patties, cheesy burgers, backyard burgers, best hamburgers

This recipe makes eighteen 6oz burgers, so making a large batch like this is super-convenient if you have impromptu guests over, or if you need to bring something impressive to a pot luck barbecue. Your guests will rave – these are seriously juicy, cheesy, savoury and just about the best thing you will eat all summer long!

Best burgers ever, homemade hamburgers, homemade hamburger patties, cheesy burgers, backyard burgers, best hamburgers

Fresh buns, and early evening sunshine round out the perfection.

Best burgers ever, homemade hamburgers, homemade hamburger patties, cheesy burgers, backyard burgers, best hamburgers

I feel like one of Pavlov’s dogs right now – I’m actually salivating just looking at the screen! lol

Test out the recipe and see if you don’t agree that these are some of the best burgers you have EVER eaten.

Have a great one!

    1. Take this recipe and add a bottle of Jamaican hot sauce, banana peppers, fire and a side of Pepto. Lol. Sorry, I don’t have it, email Dad..

    1. Try out the recipe and let me know if I’ve exaggerated… but to be honest, anything slathered in cheese can’t be anything but scrumptious right? lol
