Hamburger A La Michelle
I am a notoriously picky eater (and always have been), but I love hamburgers. I definitely have my preferences in how they're prepared, cooked, and served, though. Today's picture shows how I make hamburgers when I eat them at home (well, at my parents house this time since I'm still visiting them).
I mix Worchestire sauce, chopped or minced onion, and black pepper into the meat before I cook it. I even have a particular order/method to mixing it and I always do it by hand. I sometimes add a little Worchestire sauce as it's cooking as well. I'm the only one in my immediate family that does it, but I got it from my maternal grandmother. She used to mix stuff into hamburger meat, though not the same stuff. And she used to use fresh onions, but I tend to use dried chopped or minced onions to save time and tears.
I serve (well, eat really) the hamburger on a lightly toasted (in the oven) wheat bun with ketchup (spread on both top and bottom bun as well as on the meat patty itself).
