My burgers are famous with my family and friends. It is just a perfect no nonsense burger, nothing fancy. I never add any topings myself, however, it is a delicous burger topped with tomatoe, lettuce, onion, ketsup, spicey mustard. Usually my friends and family top this burger with the minimal, some kind of condiment and American cheese.


1.5 lbs chopped sirloin
1/3 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1 egg
1 bottle Sutter Home Cabernet Sauvignon
6 slices of American Cheese
Hamburger Buns


Preheat grille to HOT, 400 to 450 degress, if you have a themometer on your grill, if not make your grill hot. Combine in a bowl sirloin, brown sugar, breadcrumbs and egg. Mix throughly with your hands until all ingredients are completely mixed together. Using your hands, make 6 burger patties, placing them one at a time on a platter. Place burger patties on grilling surface. Pour a small amount of wine in a small bowl. Dip a brush in the bowl of wine and coat the surface of the burgers with the wine/brush. Cook time each side is 3 minutes. After turning the burgers, coat the other side of the burger with the wine. Turn the burgers one more time, and add a slice of American Cheese. Cook burgers until cheese is melted to your taste. Remove cooked burgers to a clean platter and get ready to serve.


Personally I just put mayo on my burger, however some friends and family use ketsup, some use a spicey mustard, sliced tomatoes, onion, lettuce are always on hand to top your burger. Buns can be heated on the grill or not. I leave this to your individual taste. Everyone loves the taste of the burger so much that few build their burger too high. Thank you!
