This is the Best Hamburger Patty recipe for making homemade hamburgers! Super juicy burgers made with just a few simple ingredients, and they’ll taste even better than a restaurant!



  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef (we like to use 80% – 85% ground beef)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh black pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons steak seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce


  1. Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix together lightly with your hands. Don’t mix or squeeze the meat too much as it will result in a tougher hamburger patty.
  2. Preheat the grill to 425 degrees.
  3. Form the hamburger meat into 4 round patties and then use your thumbs to make a well in the center of each patty.
  4. Grill the hamburgers for 4 minutes on each side for medium to medium rare. If you like your hamburgers more cooked through just add a minute of two to the cooking time on each side.
  5. Remove the hamburgers from the grill to a plate and cover with foil for 5 minutes. We like to add our cheese at this time as the heat from the hamburgers will melt the cheese instead of doing it on the grill.
  6. Serve the hamburgers on hamburger buns with your toppings of choice.

Recipe Notes

To Freeze: Form the hamburger patties and place them into resealable freezer bags in a single layer, not touching the patties together. This way it will be easy to take one or as many out as you need, then defrost and grill.

Stove Top Method: Cook the hamburger patties in a skillet or on a griddle pan on the stove top. Add butter or oil to the pan over medium-hight heat. Cook the burger patties for 4-5 minutes on each side until the desired temperature is reached.
