This is a recipe that I have watched my dad make for years, and he learned it from his grandma "Ma" so its been passed on for awhile now! I still think his burgers are the best!!

1 pound ground beef (you can also use turkey, etc.)
onion, chopped fine
2-3 garlic cloves, chopped fine
mushrooms, chopped fine
1 egg
spices (rosemary, sage, oregano, thyme, as desired)
bread crumbs
Optional: chopped cilantro

Makes 4-6 burgers, depending on the size of your bread/bun.
Saute the chopped onion, garlic & mushroom. Add to your ground beef in a large bowl, along with the egg. Add your mixture of spices to please your taste, and mix well. Then add bread crumbs to thicken and soak up any runny egg. Form your patties and cook to your preference. You may sear in a pan and fry, or barbecue over a fire. As great grandma Ma would say, "Nuthin' to it!"

You can also use the same mixture to make meatballs. These can be added to spaghetti, stroganoff, etc. Another option is to make a larger batch, and cover it with the sauce of your choice and bake for meatloaf.
glory to my Dad, and generations past....
