Lela's Famous Burgers
Updated On: Oct 06, 2010

Mar 2nd, 2009 by Foodie

This is the recipe Gordon Ramsay used on Kitchen Nightmares when he went to Lela’s and created Lela’s Famous Burger. I’ve prepared this recipe three times and been delighted each time! These hamburgers taste best when prepared on the grill, but can be a little difficult because they tend to crumble. I suggest squeezing as much liquid out of the hamburger patties as possible before putting them on the BBQ. Don’t forget to add some color to the burgers while cooking them.

For best results you should get your hamburger meat from a local butcher and avoid prepackaged patties at all costs! Prepackaged hamburger patties are uneven in flavor and taste. Use a meat which has about 15% fat for a nice balance between flavor, health, and price.

Good luck and let me know how it works out for you!

  • 1LB-1.25LBs Ground Beef
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Dijon Mustard.
  • Worcestershire Sauce (several splashes)
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 3 Tablespoons Ketchup
  • Enough Red Onion to equally distribute in the ground beef. (I’ve had the best results putting the onion in a food processor)

Cooking the Hamburgers:

Medium heat works best for cooking hamburgers as it allows for nice grill marks and color, but provides enough time to cook the inside without drying it out. Prepare your grill (or your pan) by allowing it to reach medium heat. Place your hamburger patties on the grill (or in the pan) and resist the urge to press them with a spatula or move them around too much; either of these practices will dry out the burgers and can also cause Lela’s Famous Hamburgers to crumble.

Flip your patties after 3 minutes of steady cooking and allow them to cook for 3 more minutes. You may need to flip once or twice more depending on the heat of your grill (or stove). USDA says that the inside of your hamburgers should be 160 degrees before eating. Some of you might like your hamburgers medium, or medium rare. Under cook hamburger patties at your own risk.

Now top those bad boys with some of the freshest tomatoes and lettuce you can get your hands on! You can now enjoy the tastiest hamburgers I’ve ever eaten!
