Ultimate Burger Patty Recipe! Devour a Jenny Burger

No matter what my family prefers on their burgers, they all agree that Jenny Burgers are the best burger patty recipe out there!

When my family gets together, there’s usually a big debate about what will make the ultimate burger.

Do you take yours with Cheddar, lettuce and tomato? Maybe you’re a blue cheese kind of gal? Go crazy and add feta with black olives.

Just what is a Jenny Burger, you ask?

I got tired of eating just plain burger patties whenever we had a picnic.

I kept thinking there had to be a better way to infuse flavor in the actual burger while letting everyone add their own toppings and spin to their meal.

Ultimate Burger Patty Recipe

We first served Jenny Burgers at a picnic and people went wild!

My husband and I were surprised at how people kept gushing.

We knew we had hit something.

And my husband, in his infinite wisdom (ha!) named the burgers after me…. Jenny Burgers were born!

After many years of keeping this to myself, I’m sharing my recipe.

Because, really, you shouldn’t have to suffer through another boring burger again.

Jenny Burgers hit the spot for Game Day!

Ingredients

  • 1 large white Vidalia onion (not yellow!)
  • 1 clove fresh garlic
  • Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 pound ground beef (85/15% preferred)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Step 1: Dice the large white onion. While you’re at it… learn how to cut onions without crying.

Step 2: Mince a clove of fresh garlic. If you’re someone who likes serious punch, add in an additional clove (that’s what we do!)

Note: Don’t use dried garlic as it won’t reconstitute without added liquid and flavor the meat.

Step 3: Mix in 1 cup of onion and all of the garlic.

Step 4: Add in one serious splash of Worcestershire sauce. (Don’t hold the bottle after the splash to pour in additional sauce. The taste will take over the burgers.)

Step 5: Add in some salt and pepper for taste.

Step 6: Mix again well.

Step 7: Divide your burger meat into 3rds or quarters. I make monstrous burgers for the boys! Even so, it seems everyone always finishes it.

Grill away, and go team go!

While you’re getting the ingredients ready, learn the trick to cutting onions without crying!

    1. I love a good burger, I tend to cover my in tomato sauce and or a hot sauce, the addition of Worcestershire sauce sounds wonderful, thanks for sharing #weekendpotluck.

      1. You’re going to love the addition of the flavors. I just got so bored that I started playing with a recipe that would work for everyone. My husband, who has fallen in love with the recipe, then deemed it Jenny Burgers. The name stuck!

    2. What a delicious looking burger, and easy to make too! Thanks for linking up with us this week at the Best of the Blogosphere! We’d love to have you back for a new link up tomorrow!

      1. The burger is fabulous (and I’m not saying that just because my husband named them after me). They really do make people oooo whenever we have them over for “plain old burgers.” πŸ˜€

    3. That is one big beautiful Jenny burger! My Mom used to do something like that – but no onion – I’m going to try your version for sure!

      Thanks for joining us again at Throwback Thursday!!

The collection starts at 7am Friday New Zealand time – which might be some time Thursday your time – aren’t time zones confusing? Well they confuse me! Hope to see you soon. Cheers, Carole

    5. This sounds so similar to what I do too! I add a tiny bit more worcestershire (I just love it) and balsamic vinegar. Also love adding in chopped jalapenos and bell peppers for a crunch.
