1 lb ground beef
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
4 hamburger buns
Toppings of your choice (lettuce, tomato, cheese, etc.)
In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, egg, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix well with your hands until everything is evenly distributed.
Divide the mixture into four equal portions and shape them into patties about 1/2 inch thick. Make a slight indentation in the center of each patty to help prevent it from puffing up while cooking.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. If using a grill, preheat it to medium-high heat and cook the patties for the same amount of time.
Meanwhile, lightly toast the hamburger buns.
Assemble the burgers by placing the cooked patties on the bottom buns, followed by any desired toppings. Top with the remaining bun halves and serve immediately. Enjoy your delicious beef burger!
