They looked good!
Mix in some dry oatmeal. I tell my wife that it LOWERS the cholesterol in the burger
(at least that's what the Cheerios folks would have you believe) in reality, it keeps them moist inside.
I usually put in about 1/2 to 3/4 cup (as a guess) to 1-1/2 lb of hamburger? I really just throw a bunch of stuff in a bowl until it "looks" right. My wife insists on buying the 90% lean beef (70% beef is really better for grilling), so 90% burgers that aren't "fixed" stick to the grate and are dry. I've solved this problem by blending in the oatmeal and a significant dollop of bacon grease.
One of the local eateries around Clear Lake call that type of burger a squealer. They grind bacon into the hamburger. Just using the drippings is the lazy way to do it.
