Things You'll Need
1 cup breadcrumbs
3 tablespoons whole milk
17.5 ounces / 500 grams ground beef
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon minced garlic paste
1 tablespoon chopped rosemary, or your choice of herb
Sea salt and cracked black pepper, to taste
Olive oil, for frying
Step 1: Moisten the Breadcrumbs
Put the breadcrumbs in a small bowl, and drizzle in the milk. Let stand for 5 minutes until the crumbs have absorbed the liquid.
Step 2: Combine the Ingredients
Add the moistened breadcrumbs to a large bowl with the beef, Dijon mustard, garlic and rosemary.
Step 3: Mix Well
Mix all the ingredients well to combine, and then season with sea salt and pepper.
Step 4: Divide and Shape
Divide the mixture into 4 portions, and shape into patties using your hands. Alternatively, you can use a burger press or mold.
To make hamburger patties that are perfectly shaped when cooked, make a small depression in the center of the burger so as the center puffs, the burger remains level.
Step 5: Fry
Place a nonstick frying pan over medium to high heat, and cook the patties for 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until just cooked through.
You can make beef hamburger patties in advance and freeze them for up to 3 months.
