Day 120 : Garlic Lover’s Burger

These burgers are not only packed with garlic flavor but many others as well.  They are SUPER moist, and also so super simple to make.  I like to make them on the foreman grill because they are pretty delicate/moist when starting out, but you might be able to do them on a special rack on the BBQ or in a skillet as well.

I know it seems like a LOT of garlic to cut up and add 3 T. worth, but trust me when I say you want to use it all.  The blend of flavors is out of this world and you will never want to have a simple boring burger again.  Tonight was our first time trying it with the suggested black beans addition and I liked it, but Jeff wasn’t as big a fan.  We usually do add onions though.

I like mine on a bun with just mayo, lettuce and pickle.  Jeff  has also tried it with ketchup and claims it takes on an almost meatloaf taste that way.  Even Archer enjoyed them tonight, so I guess you can say these are “kid friendly”.

Garlic Lover’s Burger

  • 3 T. soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • fresh ground pepper to taste
  • salt to taste
  • 4 kaiser buns

Optional

  • black beans (1/2 – 1 can… they act as a bulker and add nutrition), rinsed drained, and roughly chopped
  • chopped onions
  • spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce, which makes it more meatloaf style in flavor

Directions :

  1. Combine ingredients in bowl and mix with hands.  Take care not to over-work the meat.
