What do you feel goes into making the perfect hamburger?

Do you add anything to the ground beef before cooking?

What process do you use for cooking them?

85/15 best, no more fat than 85/20 very fresh certified Angus beef and don't overcook it. One of those sure looks tasty after this fowl food of the last few days.

Made from fresh lean ground beef - no frozen patties! Not a lot of relish on the bun.

Chopped onion, can of mushrooms, secret bbq sauce, egg, and depending who is in charge in mixing the burgers, without without breadcrumbs.

Prefer on the BBQ.

If in the convection oven, on a broiling pan.

Try adding a little Dijon mustard mixed into the ground beef - a tablespoon in total mixed in for 6 burgers. Don't forget to thumbprint the middle of the burger before frying/bbq'ing. Somehow it keeps the "shape" of of the burger during the cooking stage.

Sprinkle on some adabo.....

"Adobo's perfect blend of garlic, oregano and other Latino spices is the perfect seasoning for all your meat, poultry and fish dishes"

Use it on everything that goes on the grill....

Great on burgers....
Then dress it with a little mayo, mustard and some raw sweet onion...

Some of my special steak seasoning on a 7 or 8 oz 93% lean beef patty, whole grain buns, jalapeños, tomato, lettuce, spicy brown mustard, onions. Maybe a little of Harry's Habanero sauce for good measure.

I am a big fan of an old fashioned burger that literally drips grease down my hands while I am trying to eat it. I think if you over-handle the ground beef (I prefer sirloin) that it gets a bit tough so I gently mix in salt, pepper, a bit of either Worcestershire or steak sauce and occasionally a bit of steak seasoning. I also try not to mess with it much while it cooks. I only flip it once. I like a very fresh bun that has been toasted golden brown. Adding bacon and cheese to my burger is definitely the icing on the cake.

OMG! Now I am soooooo hungry!

For me.... its all in the architecture of the burger itself - pre cooking.

Grab some minced beef, some onions, cheese and an egg. Grind up the minced beef by hand into a smoother texture, then kneed one full egg and some chopped onions into the mixture, until nicely mixed. You can either - grate some cheese and repeat, or, insert a ball of cheese into the inside of a patty itself, which is scrumptious when you bite into it....!!

I like to add chilli powder and sometimes jalepenos to spice the burger up!

Next, toasted buns, layer of lettuce, raw onions and away you go....

Not forgetting the side serving of sweet potato fries!

For me the perfect burger is simple. Just lovely ground beef, shaped and sprinkled with season salt or salt and pepper.

Like Cricket mentions, not a long of mixing and try only to flip them once.

An NO "squeezing" with the spatula while cooking.

I think adding cheese, butter sauteed onions and a little mayo makes it perfect.

Oh, and ... come closer and let me whisper in your ear... buttered buns.

Buns lightly toasted on the skillet in butter make the perfect finish to the ultimate burger.

I like a really good bread (buns) for my hamburger, something that's not too heavy and thick. The beef patty should be well cooked and marinated. I like some cabbage, cucumber, white onions, cheese, and ketchup in it. That's basically it.

I usually use ground sirloin, with egg, diced onion, a TBSP each of Dijon mustard and worcestershire sauce, and some crushed crackers or croutons. I press some Montreal Hamburger Seasoning inot both sides, then grill them over charcoal. Turn 'em once, a slab of jack cheese on top for the last couple of minutes, then onto a toasted bun, laced with blue cheese dressing and a thick slab of red onion!

Speaking of shape...

We use to roll in a ball then flatten the raw burgers. Now we use a round Tupperware container and tip them out onto the broiling pan or plate to go to the BBQ.

I mix a little bit of bacon, and some onion, in with it. Well done for me, and usually I'll eat it with horseradish, when I'm in the mood; otherwise, tomato, swiss chard, and Miracle Whip, which I prefer to mayonnaise.

Continuing "Speaking of shape..."

We have a set of those individual metal measuring cups and I find they make wonderful burger shapers. Just dump the meat on a plate or waxed paper, press the correct cup size onto the pile of meat, press hard and cook out the patty like making a cookie. The meat comes out with a tap tap, then simply add a small portion of wax paper to the top and press with a plate bottom to the desired thickness. Since you start with a round you get an almost perfect burger every time.

1/4 cup makes a thin 2 ounce burger
1/2 cup makes a quarter pounder
1 cup makes a half pound burger or steak patty.

This compresses the meat but but does not overwork and make it tough.

Fresh ground beef. Diced green pepper and onions mixed into the meat and grilled on an open flame. On a roll with a slice of raw onion, tomato, a pile of cilantro and ketchup.
