Fancy Hamburgers

1092The fourth of July is just around the corner.  I actually have the day off so I am going to cook up a special 4th of July menu for myself and a few friends.  I decided on burgers, a pasta salad and an apple pie for dessert.  Nothing too fancy.

I found the burger recipe in a 1973 Good Housekeeping Cooking for Two cookbook.

Fancy Hamburgers


1/2 lb ground beef

2 TBS sour cream

1 TBS bread crumbs

6- 8 fresh mushrooms, trimmed and chopped

1 green onion, finely sliced

1 TBS fresh chopped parsley

1/2 tsp salt

fresh ground pepper

In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients; mix well.  Shape into 2 large patties.  Heat a medium frying pan over high heat; reduce heat to medium.  Cook on first side, for about 8 minutes.  Flip the patties and cook for 8 more minutes or until your desired degree of doneness.
