Gourmet Hamburgers Patties: Red Onion Burger

Ah, hamburgers — everyone loves the mouthwatering char-grilled goodness. But with that amazing taste comes “hamburger hands”…that dreaded sticky mess from making the patties. Not to mention portion size and prep time. Here’s the perfect solution: Create delicious gourmet hamburgers in a Ziploc® brand bag beforehand, then score the bag for individual portions and freeze for later.


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • ½ cup red onion, peeled and diced
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper

Make ahead:


  1. Place all ingredients in a gallon size Ziploc® brand freezer bag. Seal, pressing all the air out, and mix thoroughly by kneading the bag with your hands.
  2. Lay the bag on a flat surface and press on it gently to even out the hamburger meat. Then, using a chopstick or ruler, score the bag, making 9 squares. Freeze or use immediately.

Ready to eat Directions

  1. Heat a charcoal or gas grill to medium-high.
  2. Break the patties along the score marks. Take out however many patties you need and keep the rest in the bag.
  3. Place hamburger patties on the grill and grill for 4 minutes a side for a medium doneness. Serve on hamburger buns.

This recipe came from ZipLoc.com and was one of the tastiest burgers I have ever had.
