I quite simply LOVE these hamburgers! They fit all three of my requirements: Easy, tasty and economical. The winning trifecta! The BBQ sauce is both sweet and tangy and the burgers are juicy. My secret ingredient in the sauce is coffee. Good, strong coffee that gives this sauce a unique depth of flavor. This is a wonderful way to stretch your meat dollars because adding oatmeal to the ground beef, gives you 12 quarter pound burgers from two pounds of beef instead of eight quarter pound burgers. I do a bit of bulk cooking so I can freeze meals for future use and these freeze very nicely. Baking the patties saves on clean up too. No grease splatters on your stove. Just wad up the aluminum foil and toss it. Whether you are planning ahead for future meals or having a football tailgate party, my burgers will be a hit at your house!
Here’s what we’ll need.
