How to make hamburger patties

Ah, burgers. Hot, juicy, thick burgers. Am I the only one who craves a burger every once in a while? I’ll bet not.

Burgers aren’t always the most inexpensive meal you can make, but if you find ground beef on a good sale, stock up and enjoy your own hot, juicy, thick burgers!

Of course, you know I am going to include these in my large family freezer cooking days whenever I can because they are just so easy. Mix the meat with some spices, shape into patties, and you’re good to go. Not a lot of ingredients and not a lot of steps. It’s the perfect large family freezer meal. And then you can have a hot, juicy…I think you get the picture… anytime you want one!

Alright, enough chatting; let’s make hamburgers for the freezer.

Thick and hearty burgers for those times when nothing but a burger will do.

  • Author: Jamerrill Stewart

10 lbs ground beef

4 TBSP garlic powder

6 TBSP paprika

4 TBSP cumin

4 TBSP parsley

Mix burgers with all spices in a very large bowl.

Shape into thick patties. (I got 27 burgers from my 10 lbs of ground beef)

Layer between sheets of freezer paper or parchment paper on a cookie sheet and flash freeze.

Store patties in freezer bags until ready to cook.

Grill, pan fry, or oven bake burgers.

For baking, set the oven to 375* and bake burgers for 30 minutes.

Flip burgers and cook for 15 more minutes or until internal thermometer reaches 185*.

I usually put these in the oven for the last hour of our read-aloud time in order to contain the mess and so I don’t have to keep tending to them. Line your pan with double layers of aluminum foil to make clean-up much easier!

Here are a few ideas on how to season frozen hamburger patties  

Sprinkle it on:

  • Seasoned salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Chili powder
  • Good old salt and pepper

Slather it on:

  • BBQ sauce – I’ve been liking a combo of Country Bob’s and Sweet Baby Ray’s.  Surprisingly good mixed together.
  • Italian dressing – don’t save it just for chicken breasts
  • Hoisin sauce
  • Worcestershire sauce

Cheese it up:

  • Cheddar
  • American
  • Swiss
  • Pepper Jack
