Papa's favorite burgers

I made these today with Papa Joe ( the Papa in the recipe title refers to Hemingway not Papa joe). They are fantastic--delicious and juicy.

Makes 7 big burgers

  • ⅓ cup dry red or white wine
  • ¼ cup grated cheddar
  • 2 tbsp. capers, drained
  • 2 tbsp. grated tart apple
  • 1 tbsp. minced parsley
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1½ tsp. ground sage
  • 1½ tsp. India relish
  • ½ tsp. Beau Monde seasoning ( I substituted season salt)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced garlic, minced
  • small scallions, minced
  • egg, beaten
  • plum tomato, cored, peeled, and grated
  • ½ small carrot, grated
  • ½ small yellow onion, grated
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp. canola oil
  • ​Hamburger buns, lettuce, sliced tomato and onion, ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise, for serving


Mix ingredients, except for oil, buns, and condiments, in a bowl; form into four 6-oz. patties. Heat oil in a 12" skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties, flipping once, until cooked to desired doneness, 8–10 minutes for medium rare. Serve on buns with lettuce, tomato, onion, ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise.
