I'd like to send this one out to shootfightermike in honor of his love for beer and burgers. I know the trend these days is to back off of heavily seasoning burgers and enjoy the purity of a high-quality burger, but forget that for now. Try this once, and you'll be blown away. Nobody I've ever cooked them for has ever not told me they are the best burgers ever. One warning though, don't try to grill too many of them at once. You get an assload of flare-ups because of all the shit dripping out of them. I cooked them for about 10 people at a pre-UFC dinner. I thought the whole deck was going to go up in flames.
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ package dried onion soup mix
  • 3/8 cup crushed saltine crackers
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2½ lbs hamburger meat
Mix all that shit together really well, form into patties, and grill 'em up. Serve on buns with your favorite toppings. I go this one from Ruby Ann's Down Home Trailer Park Cookbook. A joke gift I got for Christmas in 2004, that turned out to have some really good recipies in it. The offical names of this one is Lovie Birch's BBQ Party Burgers.

That's okay. I hardly ever post on the ones I mod. This one will be different, but I'm going to take a back seat to crescentwrench and alpo. They're the real pros here.

How many burgers does that yield?

"Sounds kind of good except for the mayo."
I don't like mayo on burgers. If I go out for fast food, mayo is the one incredient I insist they "hold". But it works in the burger. You can't really taste it directly. It just helps make up the overall flavor.

Making these tonight. I'll report on my results later. What wine does one drink with Trailer Park Burgers? Franzia Burgundy is what I'm thinking, lol.

That is a weird recipe, I will have to try that. I usually just mince some onions and garlic, then add some worcestershire, black pepper, salt and apple cider vinegar, then mix into the meat and grill over charcoal/oak mix with the top closed. Was that a run on sentence?

Absolutely a runon. 

I have always used the James Beard style.  Run an onion through the fine holes of a box grater and add to the meat.  Pour in a little cream, salt and pepper to taste, and mix.   Throw a pat of butter and a squirt of vegetable oil in a blazing hot cast iron skillet and cook. 

Mmm, I could eat a burger every day. 

Anyone ever watch the Burgermeister on old Discovery afternoons?  It's the same guy who did Death by Chocolate and he looked like a 70s porn star.

I thought these burgers were good, but a little too much like meat loaf on a bun, and a little more work than I like to put into a burger.

Meatloaf on a bun?  I love meatloaf sammiches!  God I can't wait to get home and fire these up.

Okay I made them and here's how it went.  First off it's raining here so grilling out wasn't an option.  It also screwed me for barbecue because now I have 17 pounds of pork butt in my fridge and no way to smoke them :-(.

So I broke out the trusty ol' cast iron skillet.  Not being one to leave well enough alone and always ready to test my theory that Bacon Makes it Better I first fried up a few pieces and crumbled them right up in the burger with the rest of the ingredients. 

For once it wasn't a bad thing that my shitty stove burner has a slope, these things did put off a lot of grease in addition to the bacon fat I left in there.  Which was actually a plus since it gave me a nice pool to fry up some onions. 

Melt a big ol' slab of cheddar and bun them up with some bread and butter jalapenos I had in the fridge and urethra!  These are truly a hit and I'll definately break these out the next time I burger up for a party.  The wife fell in love with them, I may have to do it this way from now on. 

If you're in the mood for something more than a classic cheeseburger these are absolutely the ones to make.  Indoors or out.

Good Lord, I can't imagine what my grill would look like with bacon added to these beasts. Sound excellent, though. I'll do this next time too. Glad you liked 'em. Welcome to the trailer park.

C-Dub, quit making excuses... I have one of these and it is great. Folds up and stores in this zippered bag, so you can just throw it in the garage when you're not using it. It is all one piece too, so one person can put it up and take it down. I throw it over my smoker all the time if it starts to rain.

The bacon was cooked so it didn't add a whole helluva lot. 

That's cheaper than I thought it would be.  I thought about stringing a tarp over the clotheslines but it was a little too low for safety.  So I just threw them in the oven last night and forgot about them.  The timing was off a little though because my thermometer went off at like 5:30 this morning.

No problem. I wish I could take credit for its creation. :^) How was cooking them on the stove? Was it messy? Smoky?
