Andy the Butcher's ‘Best Burger Ever’

Andy the Butcher's ‘Best Burger Ever’

Summer = BBQ. BBQ = Burgers. And there’s no better way to enjoy this summer staple than on a Saturday afternoon, cold drink in hand, with loved ones around. So, to get you set up for the weekend, here is my go-to burger recipe:


  • 1lb M&B 80/20 Ground Beef Chuck
  • ½ cup Onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tbsp of your favourite BBQ sauce
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Salt & pepper to season


  1. Mix all ingredients together (minus the S&P) until incorporated. Try to avoid over-mixing as it can cause the burgers to become dense and a bit tough.
  2. Form your patties. I like to form them slightly bigger than the bun to account for any shrinkage once they hit the heat.
  3. Fire up your grill! 
  4. Sprinkle your burgers with salt and pepper just before putting them on the grill. This ensures your patties stay nice and juicy. 
  5. Grill the patties for 10-12 minutes, flipping once only.
