Patty Directions

9. Mix all of the ingredients together gently; you don’t want to mush and mash it.

10. Form into patties and make an indent with your thumb so the burger won’t bulge. The indent will rise as the patty cooks.

11. Preheat your grill to high

12. Brush both sides of the patties with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper

13. Brush on the BBQ sauce as the patties start to cook

14. Grill until golden brown and slightly charred, turning once (7 minutes for medium-rare)

15. Tops burgers with your favourite toppings.

Don’t forget the napkins!
