For the grill----Hickory chips soaked in worcestershire and water one hour or more.
- 2 pounds lean ground round (can use ground turkey for a low-fat burger)
- 1 package dry Onion Soup Mix
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tsp. hot sauce
- 3/4 cup bread crumbs (if desired)
Combine food ingredients in large mixing bowl and mix well. Roll into patties, making roughly about 12 to 14 patties, depending on size and thickness desired. Spread Hickory chips over hot coals and wait until they flame up. If gas grill, reduce heat when this occurs. Grill burgers to desired
state (rare, medium rare, medium well or well) I prefer mine well and it usually takes them about 20 minutes or so to cook, turning frequently and depending on heat applied. Serve between sesame seed bun and if desired, plenty of lettuce, tomatoe, onion and pickles. Makes for a great summer cookout
and is nicely complimented by potatoe salad and/or baked beans.
