Ingredients

5 lb ground beef (80% lean 20% fat)
1 red onion, chopped
2 eggs
2 scoop whey protein powder
1 Tbsp glutamine
2 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp thyme
1 pinch nutmeg

Here, I used powder garlic, but you can use real garlic if you want to.  I just happen to have a huge bottle in the cabinet.  You don’t have to measure the spices.  Just eyeball however much you think taste good.  The whey protein acts as a binder like the egg.  It will hold your burger together and help hold its shape.  The glutamine increases mallard reaction, more browning, more meat flavor.
