3 pounds lean ground beef

¼ cup panko bread crumbs
4 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon tabasco sauce
Salt & pepper to taste, added while grilling
Preheat barbecue grill to medium heat. Apply a small amount of cooking spray immediately before grilling to prevent sticking.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix by hand until evenly incorporated. Press out patties into either 6oz or 8oz portions. Putting parchment paper between two 6-inch plates work well for keeping them even.
Cook burgers to an internal temperature of 185F (approximately 6-7 minutes per side) and serve hot. Bon appetit!
*Chef’s Tip: Cut a white onion in half and rub it on the grill once it warms to help clean, condition and slightly flavour the grill.
Makes 6 x 8oz patties, or 8 x 6oz patties
