Listen.


And listen closely.


Stop buying pre-made hamburgers!


A hamburger patty very well may be the easiest thing to make for yourself. When you buy those pre-made ones, all you do is add extra money to your grocery bill for essentially the same amount of effort! With a pound of plain ground beef, you can make anywhere from two to four patties, and you can season it with all your favorite flavors that much easier.


(You can also get a variety of different meats, too, like ground bison, turkey, chicken, and so on, which makes it even easier to get a burger exactly the way you want it!)


For this summertime classic, my partner and I worked together to set up some absolutely delicious homemade burgers (fried in a pan rather than a grill, since not having a grill should not stop you from homemade burger goodness). I was craving these so bad and simply refused to buy something at Wendy's that I could just as easily make (and make better) at home.


And the magic in burgers... that's something else we can talk about, too. Especially since we like a little spice to our meat, we're looking at lots of savory flavors—but also the flavors of the condiments and toppings themselves, like spinach and mustard!


Magic in Homemade Burgers

While you can honestly choose a ton of different components here depending on your intentions, from the wheat in the buns to the mayonnaise you slather on them (if that's your thing), we're looking at a magical blend to inspire fun, passion, and energy (because who doesn't need more of that in their life this summer?)


To get this focus, we're looking at cumin, spinach, and something spicy like chipotle or chili powder (whatever spice level you can handle). With Mars and its fiery kick here in the cumin and chili, as well as earthy spinach's energy of abundance, brightness, and endurance thanks to Jupiter, you've got the recipe for a stable foundation and plenty of creative, jubilant energy to cheer up the whole house!


Nothing picks up the mood like burger night as it is—but when you invoke these dear foods to lend their talents to you, it only brings the mood up that much higher!


Homemade Burgers


Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Makes 4-6 Servings


Ingredients:

2 Lbs

Ground Beef, portioned into patties

1 Whole

Onion, half finely diced and half sliced

1 Large

Tomato, sliced`

1 Cup

Spinach, washed

4-6 Slices

Cheese (optional)

1/2 Tbsp

Cumin

1 Tbsp

Chili or Chipotle Powder

1 Tbsp

Garlic & Onion Powder

1 Tbsp

Worcestershire Sauce

1 Pack Large

Burger Buns

Condiments

Mustard, Ketchup, etc.


Directions:

  • Prepare your onion and set the sliced half aside. (Make sure the onions are as finely chopped as you can get them!)

  • Mix all your spices on a separate plate or bowl

  • Portion your ground beef into equal sized patties (at least 1/4 a pound) and roll them in the spice mixture

  • Add onions to the meatball and continue to knead them in

  • Shape them into discs with a well in the center. This prevents them from ballooning up weirdly as they cook!

  • Get a pan hot, then keep on medium-low heat and lay the patties down when the pan is ready, leaving them to cook until the brown color starts creeping up the side, about 2-3 minutes.

  • In the meantime, finish slicing your tomatoes, wash your spinach, and separate your buns for toasting if you like toasted buns.

  • Flip the burgers and let them cook another minute or two, then lay cheese on them and cover the pan for another minute to let the cheese melt.

  • Build your burger with the condiments and toppings of your choice and dig in!


Homemade burgers kick the pants off ones you might just pick up on the way home any time. They're endlessly customizable, so quick and easy, and the perfect meal for those picturesque summer days. Fire up the grill (or the pan) and try these out!
