Back when I was in chef school the place had two restaurants and a retail store that sold food produced in the school by the students. Eveything we cranked out was really top flight. Part of my training I worked in what was called The Academy Grill - you did two weeks waiting tables and two weeks working the line (same in the other restaurants). The Academy Grill had a hamburger on it's menu that was extremely popular. Served with fresh cut french fried potatoes or french fried sweet potatoes and a freshly made garlic mayo it comprised about 1/3 of what customers ordered. A BURGER that good, yeah because it wasn't made of just ground beef... Try these. What I do is cut pieces of parchment (or wax) paper and lay a long strip in square food storage boxes - as I make my patties I lay one down, fold the excess paper over it and lay my 2nd patty on top of that, plop on a lid and freeze them until we feel like having them. Really great. 1 lb ground beef 1 lb ground pork 1 lb ground veal (or 1/ 2 lb veal and 1/2 lb lamb, what was used at The Academy Grill) 1 bunch scallions, chopped 1 cup fresh flat leaf parsley finely chopped 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs (make your own out of old bread) 2 eggs 1 Tbls Herbs de Provence 1 Tbls A-1 Steak Sauce 1 Tsp Seasoning Salt 1 Tsp Fresh Cracked Black Pepper Combine all ingredients well with your hands (I used my Kitchen Aid mixer and the paddle attachment), shape into patties and store in microwave food storage boxes, 2 to a box. 3 lb. of meat should give you about 10-12 very tasty burgers. We just fry ours in a heavy cast iron skillet in a little EVO and serve on a plate with a baked potato and some beans. WOW !!
