Hoedown Grilled Hamburgers

1/2 cup sour cream
3 green onions — chopped, with tops
3 tbsp bread crumbs
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1 lb lean ground beef
4 hamburger buns
shredded lettuce
1 tomato — 4 slices per hamburger
1 yellow onion – 4 slices per hamburger
2 tsp mustard
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp ketchup


Prepare white or yellow sweet onion by slicing in thick slices, place in plastic bag or glass jar with ice water, seal and refrigerate until ready to use.
This makes the onions very crisp and juicy.

Slice a vine-ripened tomato into thick slices.
Mix sour cream, chopped green onions, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce and lemon pepper seasoning.
Mix this in with the ground meat until combined well.
Shape into 4 patties.
Place meat on grill over hot coals and cook to desired doneness -minimum 160 F-, turning only once or twice. Mix the mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup. Blend well.
To serve, divide the ketchup mixture evenly on the warmed hamburger buns, top with a meat patty, tomato slice, onion slice and shredded lettuce. Also good with alfalfa or radish sprouts.
Don’t forget to wash your hands with soap and warm water before handling any food!
