Hamburger Patties

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup potato chips, smashed
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • 1 whole onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups beef broth, more if needed for thinning
  • 4 dashes Worcestershire
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Salt and pepper


Hamburger Patties

  1. Combine the ground beef, eggs, potato chips, dry mustard, garlic powder, and some salt and pepper.
  2. Using your hands, mix all the ingredients until fully combined. Form into four hamburger patties.
  3. In a 12-inch skillet with the butter and oil over medium-high heat, fry the patties on both sides until no longer pink in the middle. (about 5 minutes a side)

  4. Remove patties from the skillet and pour off any excess grease.


  1. Reduce the heat to medium and add in the sliced onions. Stir and cook until golden brown and somewhat soft, about 3-5 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the beef broth and the corn starch. Mix well.

  3. Add the beef broth mixture and Worcestershire sauce to the onions and stir as the mixture comes to a low boil. The sauce will reduce and thicken.

  4. If the sauce appears too thick, you can add more broth for thinning.
  5. Return the cooked hamburger patties to the gravy. Spoon the gravy over the top and let them simmer and heat back up for a couple of minutes.
