Skippy Burgers


"A drunken fraternity brother taught me this recipe. It's remarkably good. I usually add more Worcestershire sauce, beer and garlic salt during cooking. To fully cook the onions and jalapenos, the burgers will need to be well done. Serve on buns with your favorite condiments."

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil grate.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, dry bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, ground black pepper and approximately 1/2 of the dark beer. Mix until firm enough to form patties, using remaining dark beer as necessary.
  3. Shape ground beef mixture into 4 thick patties. Create a well in the center of the patties, and fill with onion and jalapeno. Form the ground beef mixture back around the onions and jalapenos, and flatten.
  4. Place patties on the prepared grill, and cook 5 minutes per side, or to desired doneness.

Was very good. I mixed the onions straight into the beef, instead of in the middle. Used Amberbock as the beer, but would definitely cut it down to 1/4 of a bottle. Cooked it on a Foreman, so...
