  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 medium onion shredded
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh mint chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • salt and pepper


  • Place all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix until combined.
  • Divide mixture into 8 portions and roll each portion into a ball. Gently press down to form them into patties. Place hamburger patties onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • To cook, grill hamburgers until cooked through, flipping to ensure they cook evenly (about 4-5 minutes on each side, depending on the size of your burgers. Check with a meat thermometer to ensure they are cooked through). Alternatively, you could fry them in a pan or bake them.
