  • In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Add the ground beef and breadcrumbs, and use your hands to mix until combined.
  • Gently shape the mixture into 4 patties, about ¾ inch in thickness. Use your thumb to press down in the center of each patty to create an indent.
  • Refrigerate the patties for 20-30 minutes to help keep their shape.
  • Preheat the grill or grill pan to medium heat and oil the grates or pan. Cook the burgers for 4-5 minutes per side until they reach the desired doneness.
  • Allow the burgers to rest for a few minutes, then serve with your favorite condiments.

Please note the video includes Dijon mustard, but this updated recipe now includes Worcestershire sauce for a slightly more savory flavor. Dijon mustard still works really well for this recipe.
