Homemade Beef Burger

Your new favorite burger recipe! Our homemade beef burgers are much tastier than take-aways or store-bought, plus they are a lot more simple, easy, and quick to make that you might think.

Tips for the Best Burger

  • Prepare buns and toppings first and cook burger patties last.
  • Shape the patties wider than your buns as the meat will shrink on the grill or pan.
  • Season patties before cooking.

I have this burger form that I used for forming our burger patties.

We also loved to add some cheese between patties, and Michael loves to add more sliced cheese over the patties.

Classic Burger Toppings

  • sliced cheese
  • pickled cucumber
  • fresh red onions
  • tomato
  • iceberg lettuce
  • bacon
  • burger dressing
  • jalapenos to add some heat

I hope this burger recipe becomes a new favorite for you.

You will need:

For the burger

  • 500 grams ground beef
  • salt and pepper
  • cheese (optional)

Burger toppings

  • burger buns
  • cheese slices
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 1/2 bunch green leaf lettuce
  • 1/2 cup pickled cucumber
  • 1 medium-sized red onion, thinly sliced into rings
  • 1 pack bacon, fry
  • ketchup
  • mustard
  • fried onion (optional)


  1. Shape the meat into round flat discs, and to get perfectly round shapes, press the mixture into a burger former or a metal pastry cutter. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Place the burger patties in a frying pan and cook until they are done all the way through, and there’s no pinkness in the middle. To check this, press down the top of burger patties, and if pink juices are oozing out, then cook for a few more minutes.
  3. To serve, spread the bottom halved of hamburger buns with burger dressing, Top with topping of your choice. Cover with the hamburger bun tops.


  • To freeze, separate the patties with non-sticking baking paper, pack flat into freezer bags, and seal. Freeze for up to 1 month and transfer to the fridge to defrost 12 hours before cooking.
