Why Aren’t Burgers Too Good at Basketball?

Too many turnovers! Haha! That was a knee slapper. Ok, maybe not. 

Every time I make a burger I just think it is the most delicious burger EVER! But I’m a little biased.

Here is my juicy sizzling burger recipe. Enjoy!


  • 5-8 Ounces of ground beef (I use grass fed beef. 85% lean/ 15% fat. I find that if you have beef that is too lean, it’s kind of tough and not as tasty)
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 Tablespoon garlic powder


  • Small Skillet (If you don’t have one, you could use a regular pan but I like the taste of the burger when it comes off the cast iron skillet)

Step 1: Put a small skillet on the stove on medium heat and pre heat the oven to a low broil.

Step 2: While that is heating up, mix all of the ingredients together except the olive oil and shape it into a patty. 

Step 3: Pour 1 teaspoon of olive oil into the heated skillet and slowly lay the patty onto the skillet (if you just plop the patty on the skillet, the oil will spill and get everywhere). Leave it on the skillet for about 1 minute.

Step 4: After 1 minute flip the patty and let it cook for 1 minute on the other side (the side that is cooked should have a slight dark brown color).

Step 5: Once both sides are cooked, stick the skillet in the oven for about 2 minutes. This will properly cook the inside and outside of the patty. 

Step 6: Cook patty until desired doneness and let it sit for about 2 minutes.
