Marinated Grilled Burgers

Juicy and Flavorful

I like to keep frozen burger patties on hand for those times when you just don't have the time to thaw some ground beef and mix and shape your own. But I find the frozen ones boring and tasteless and dry. So I like to marinate them as they thaw. It adds great flavor and keeps them juicy. 

1½ cups ketchup
1½ cups water
¾ cup brown sugar
6 Tablespoons dried onion flakes,
3 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
3 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
3 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons pepper

Mix all ingredients with a wire whisk and pour over burgers.

Allow to thaw completely before grilling to your satisfaction.
