Easy Beef Hamburger Recipe – Bringing Families Back to the Dinner Table with Canadian Beef!

When you think of family dinners what image comes to mind?  For me it’s sitting at the table with everyone eating, laughing and sharing stories.  Now, when you think of what you are eating, what do you think of?  When I asked by friends this question the majority of them said – beef!  The dish in their mind was either steak, roast or hamburgers and I believe it’s because Canadian Beef brings family’s together.  It’s not surprising why, the best family dinners usually happen on the weekend when you can get everyone participating together, and the best meals usually include beef.  Dinners made during the week are faster, easier and suited to fit the picky eaters.  But the weekends…they are when we take the time to make delicious dinners created together, and these family meals are usually made with Canadian Beef.  For us, it’s beef in the crock pot in the winter and my husband’s amazing burger recipe on the barbecue in the summer!  
Burger on the BBQ
As you may know, Bee is always eager to help in the kitchen, so she is usually helping me make the salad, potatoes or both.  She usually watches her Dad make the hamburgers because she’s not into touching uncooked meat yet as it’s “yucky” (she may get this from me).  It’s so nice when we can all get involved with dinner, I feel like every time we are in the kitchen together we are creating memories.  I remember cooking with my mom when I was a little girl and watching my dad on the barbecue and I’m so happy to be able pass these traditions to our daughters (soon WeeBee will be old enough to participate).  And while cooking together is fun, bringing your family back to the table is important.  
Bringing Families Back to the Table Canadian Beef
The ingredients for the burgers are pretty basic, the main one of course is the ground beef.  We always choose Canadian Beef for a number of reasons, which I’ll highlight soon.  The other ingredients include an egg (we only use egg whites in our burgers), bread crumbs, salsa, a little bit of ketchup and some Montreal Steak Spice (which as a side note, we cannot live without on our steaks).  Basically you just mix all these ingredients together, mold the beef into burger patties and pop them on the barbecue!

    I was impressed by how much steak prices had gone down in Safeway and stocked up on them. I don’t buy many roasts in the spring/summer as we do quite a bit of BBQing at this time of year instead. I make a lot of chili, shishkabobs and stew as well. Burgers are our “too lazy to cook” fall back!!

  2. Little Miss Kate

    Yes, same in our house, not as many roasts this time of year. BBQ season is the best! Shishkabobs…not one I think about often, will have to remember that one!

  3. Growing up, my family always managed to have supper together every night, with hamburgers on the menu quite regularly. I so wish that the craziness of today’s world allowed the same. We really enjoyed hearing about each other’s day and catching up on the news. Now there is texting for that instead, I guess.

  4. Sounds good, have never thought about adding some salsa to the burgers but I definitely will try it out!

  5. 5 stars
    We just had some Canadian beef burgers on our bbq this past weekend – my kids devoured them!!!
