Simple Hamburgers Lyonnaise

Simple Hamburgers Lyonnaise

I found something a bit closer to meatloaf than hamburg in a Craig Claiborne tome. It called for 2 pounds of hamburg, to make 6 burgers (yikes!) - it was not terribly hard but it was not hamburger simple either. Julia Child had a similar recipe (but I think she called out wine instead of cream). This is an Americanized version, maybe something Howard Johnson's could have swung with.

1 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoons cream
some oil (for pan)
some flour (to sprinkle meat)
1 garlic clove chopped (optional)

1. combine.
2. shape into 4 patties, flatten, should be about > 1/2-inch thick
3. heat oil in skillet. add patties and brown well on one side; then turn and brown - about 10 minutes on the second side.
