Recipe: yummy burgers

So we bought a cow, right? But would you believe that this week was the first time we've made burgers on the grill with the *amazing* ground beef? They were delicious, cooked to perfection (way to go B!) and London even loved the mini-burger I set aside for her. And for the three of us, it was enough to freeze dinner for another night (read: to be enjoyed in my post-baby sleep deprivation haze). 

Inspired by this post via Pinterest:

1.5lb lean ground beef
1 heaping tbsp BBQ sauce
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Onion powder and black pepper to taste (I use both of these pretty liberally)

Mix all ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl
Form patties approx. 1-1.5" thick
Press firmly with your thumb in the middle of each patty to create a significant indentation; this will allow the burgers to stay "flat" and cook more evenly
Grill each side to your liking OR sautée 4-6min on each side in a buttered pan over medium heat 
Serve on buns and top with lettuce, tomato, etc.
