I will admit to grabbing a burger at a restaurant on occasion. However, I have decided the absolute best ones are made at home. Below you will find how to make super juicy grilled burgers that will be great for any occasion.

Super Juicy Grilled Burgers
Fat and seasonings are the two things you need for super juicy, flavorful grilled burgers.
Use a Fattier Meat for Burgers
For the best tasting burgers, choose ground meat with a higher fat content.
For example, pick regular ground beef instead of ground chuck, ground round or ground sirloin. If the package labeling doesn’t clearly indicate what you are buying, don’t be afraid to ask the person behind the meat counter to point you in the right direction.
Another upside of the fatty meat choice is that the price per pound is often less. When you have 4 hungry boys to feed, that is a bonus I’m willing to take. Besides, we do not have burgers all the time, so a little extra fat from the meat isn’t a big deal.
Add Seasoning for More Flavor
If you’ve ever tasted ground beef after cooking on its own, you will recall that it does not have much flavor. So, it is important to add additional seasoning.
A combination of sweet Italian pork sausage, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, onion, garlic and fresh rosemary are used to pack a lot of flavor into each bite. Worcestershire sauce and onion increase the juiciness of the burger without adding a lot of extra fat.
This recipe doesn’t specifically call for bacon. However, it is a wonderful addition to the blue cheese and avocado.

The burgers in the photos here were done free form. If you really like more uniform patties, then consider picking up a hamburger press. They even have presses that let you stuff your burger (another way to add things like bacon and cheese!)
Do you make your own burgers at home?
Are there particular flavor combinations that you enjoy?
