  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 tbs finely chopped onion
  • 1 pkg G. Washington's Brown Seasoning*
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup plain breadcrumbs divided**
  • 2-3 tbsp milk


  • Reserve 1/4 cup of the breadcrumbs for coating.
  • In a large bowl, mix the remaining 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Shape into 4-5 patties. Dredge each patty with breadcrumbs on all sides. Cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  • Heat a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tbs olive oil and heat until oil shimmers.
  • Brown patties on both sides over medium heat. Reduce heat, add the 1 tbs of water, cover tightly and cook over low heat for 10-15 minutes or until internal temperature is 160 degrees F.


*1-2 tsp granulated beef bouillon may be substituted if Washington's seasoning is not available in your area.
**1/2 cup of rolled oats may be substituted for the mixed-in breadcrumbs. However, you still need 1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs for dredging.
