My family always enjoys a good BBQ. Hamburgers are generally offered, but don’t necessarily take center stage. Imagine my surprise when everyone requested doubles and even triples of this recipe!
Sweet Chili Hamburgers
- Cook & Prep: 20 m
- Serving: 4
These burgers can be made fresh and grilled immediately, or they can be made in advance and frozen. Make sure to place a piece of Gefen Easy Baking Parchment Paper between each patty if you’re not freezing them in a single layer.
In a medium-sized bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well.
Take 1/3 cup ground beef mixture and fashion into a ball. Place the ball into a hamburger press and flatten into a 3/4-inch patty. You may fashion the patties by hand, but be careful to ensure even thickness throughout.
Grease the grill and preheat to high. Generally three minutes' grilling on each side should be adequate.
If using an Israeli brand of sweet chili sauce, reduce the amount to 1 tablespoon as it is much sweeter than the American brands.
The trick to a perfect burger is to only turn it once.
