We Americans love our burgers. Here is a recipe for the classic American burger.

1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp olive or canola oil
4 hamburger buns or rolls

In a large mixing bowl, mix the bread crumbs, egg, salt and pepper; add the beef and mix lightly but well.
Shape mixture into 4 equal patties about 1/2-inch thick. Using your thumb, press a shallow indentation into the centers.

Brush both sides of the burgers with the oil. Place on a medium-hot grill and grill, covered, 4 to 5 minutes per side (or according to the doneness you prefer). Meat should be cooked to at least 160 degrees for safety.

Place on the buns with your choice of condiments.
