Perfect Burger Patty - Trial #1

Hola! I am back! Labour Day weekend was spent in my hometown. Did not even switch on my laptop there. Being with your own family is the greatest isn't it? I can just sleep and laze around and feel so happy and content when I am back at my parents. Last weekend pulak we went back to hubby's hometown in Malacca. Explain panjang-panjang ni konon nak bagi alasan kenapa lama tak tulis lah :)

Anyway, just wanna share that a dear friend ShiQin bought me this amazing Progressive Perfect Burger Press during her trip to US recently.

So now, I am in the quest to find the perfect homemade hamburger patty. The first recipe I tried was given by my Mat Salleh Grandma ;p I chose this first because the recipe made it sound so simple. Here is the recipe:

450g minced meat
1 onion, grated (I chopped)
2-4 garlic cloves, crushed (I chopped)
2 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
2 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Place the minced meat, grated onion, garlic, mustard and pepper in a large bowl and mix together. Shape into 4-6 equal-sized burgers, then cover and leave to chill for 30 minutes. (Of course I use the burger press instead)
  2. Wipe the frying pan clean, then heat until hot. When hot, add the burgers and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side until cooked to personal preference. 2-3 minutes before it is done, place a slice of cheddar cheese on top of it. Done!

Made 3 thick and juicy burgers. Each patty weighs around 170g. I love its simplicity! As the oil is the only ingredients used to stick the meat together, the meat crumbled in our mouth as you eat. Nyummm~ I will rate this 8/10 (just in case others tastes better) Definitely a keeper!
