Homemade Burger Patties (Josh’s secret recipe)

I do a lot of the cooking in our house but when it comes to homemade burgers I am given my marching orders.

I’ve made burger patties before, and they’re ok I guess, but when Josh gets in the kitchen and makes a burger, I’m telling you, it’s like no other burger you will ever eat.


This is a big call, but I’m making it. Josh makes the BEST burger patties around. And I’ve eaten a lot of burgers.

And guess what – he let me take photos and tell you about it! Today is the best day ever.

I’d never even watched him make the patties before. And I’ll admit, even as I was watching I was thinking…hmmm, that is not how I would do it. I take it back. I take it all back. If I ever have to make a burger patty again (and I hope Josh always makes them for me) this is exactly how I will do them. And how you should too.

Crack 2 eggs into a bowl and whisk up.


Add the breadcrumbs, and mix them into the eggs.


Add the mixed herbs,


Beef stock cube (don’t leave this out…I’m pretty sure it’s the secret ingredient)


Crushed garlic,


And a squeeze of BBQ sauce

And mix that all up.

Add your mince and get in there with your hands and mix it all together.

Split the mixture into 4 and shape into patties. Normal people might make 6 patties out of this much mince but Josh likes to make man patties. Big is good!

Look at that patty! Yuuuuu-um.


Coat them lightly in flour.


And put em in the frypan.


Fry for about 7-8 minutes on either side until they are cooked through. TIP…cover the pan with a lid and they will cook through better.



And make the most epic burger ever.


No other burger will ever compare.
