Need a new idea for hamburgers Sun, 01/28/07 1:15 PM (permalink)
If you were to invent a new hamburger (pattie) what would you put in it?
I try to come up with a new pattie every year, but I’m starting to run out of ideas.
I’m looking for something that will be blended in the meat so all the customer has to do is grill it and place it on a bun.
I run a small mom and pop butcher shop and I like to have something that they can't get at wal-mart or Sams.

        We love shredded zucchini and cheddar. They're really moist for grilling. We use a hand grater for the zucchini and the cheddar. Add a few seasings and off to the grill.

          Since I have no idea what you have added in previous years, here are some ideas for both some common and somewhat unusual ingredients:

          A1 Sauce
          Worcestershire sauce
          BBQ sauce or rub
          taco seasoning
          Cajun seasoning
          teriyaki sauce or soy sauce
          curry powder
          dry mustard
          onion powder or garlic powder
          French onion soup mix
          onion powder plus dill weed
          Italian spices
          Italian spices plus grated Parmesan cheese
          finely shredded or grated cheese (cheddar, blue, etc.)
          Rotel tomatoes and green chilis
          peanut butter or ground peanuts

              Not sure what you've tried, but how bout a little bacon or sausage? Seems like it would simmer in nicely as the burger cooks...

                  I like to make what I call inside-out cheeseburgers.
                  Very simple, really- just make your favorite burgers, and put your cheese of choice inside, instead of on top.
                  It ain't rocket science, but it's different.

                    I like that idea! I may have to see what I can do about that one.
                    Thanks for all the ideas so far. Keep them coming.

                      How about adding either pimento cheese, terriyaki and pineapple,or grated apples?

                        How about an old-time freshly-ground flavorful burger, something that has been lacking the past few years. Something the food police won't be coming after to tell me the fat ratio isn't up to government standards. Something that the fast food places haven't cheapened by squeezing every ounce of flavor out of by cooking them until they resemble shoe leather. That's what I want in my burger - forget the additions. Just a good, honest-to-goodness, juicy burger that I grew up on.

                          Grated Hot Pepper cheese blended into the meat mixture to go with the serranos.

                          Have you done stuffed burgers before? Like rongmtek posted above.

                          you could create various fillings and stuff the burgers, that way when they are grilled or cooked they will ooze with goodness when you bite into them.

                                The one butcher stall at our farmers' market sells uncooked patties with sweet red peppers, onions, and mushrooms (all chopped fine) mixed in with the ground beef. They are great!

                                    My personal choice is adding some good country sausage. The fat and the spices will kick it up a few notches and will definately add flavor. I do that all the time with my burgers. It does not destroy the beef taste and the burger gets juicier with a hint of spice.

                                    I have also found that it does not matter if you use expensive sausage. Almost to the point, the cheaper, the better.

                                                Hey Boss,

                                                I made these Portabello burgers a while back, absolutely outstanding.

                                                http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=17401

                                                Last night I pulled the remaining 2 patties out of the freezer and grilled them up, still as juicy as ever. I used an 80/20 ground beef for them.

                                                    Maybe try selling some hombrewed spice kits (made for 1lb, 2lb or 3lb amounts). Let the customer experiment on their own...

                                                        Our corner Drug store has went by the way side, now there is a little second street coffee shop.

                                                        She serves fat juicy hamburgers, fries and all the old men sit around all morning and drink coffee and tell tales, also the best place to hear the latest news around town.

                                                        Back when we had a corner drug store, my parents had a small shop up the street from them. When I was 4-5 yrs old, my mom would pin their order and some money to my shirt and tell me to run to the girls at the counter.

                                                        They would take the order, give me a vanilla coke, fix my order, put it in a bag, hand me the change, and tell me to run back to my mom.

                                                        That was 33 years ago, to this day there is a lady in town, when she sees me she squeezes my cheek and says

                                                        "You were the little boy that would run into the drugstore with a note pinned to your shirt"



                                                        Life in a small town.
