Craving fast-food is a fierce battle to overcome. Despite having a lot of food in the fridge, we can’t help but want the most delicious burger in town. However, the risk of doing this is on your health and money. Our DIY burger patty recipe is a delicious alternative to fast food burgers. There’s the benefit of knowing what’s going in your meal. And, you never know, it’s probably better than the burger you’re craving for. 

This burger patty recipe requires both pork and beef. But it’s up to you whether or not you want to follow that ratio. You can make it all beef, all pork, or even replace it with some ground chicken. And while we may have chosen to cook them in a pan, you can always grill them for a summer barbeque party!

Be it breakfast, lunch, or dinner, this burger patty is best served any time of the day. Just imagine the juicy, meaty patty sandwiched between pickles, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and two burger buns. We’re sure you’re drooling by now, so let’s hop to it! 

If a burger patty isn’t enough to satisfy your stomach, throw in some fries on the side with our Copycat Chick-fil-A Waffle fries. Now, it just feels like you’re eating in a fast-food chain within the comforts of your own home.

5 from 1 vote

A juicy homemade burger, this DIY burger patty will save your wallet and your diet.

Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 8 mins
Total: 23 mins


  • ½ cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • lb pork, 10.58 oz, ground
  • lbs beef, 8.69 oz, ground
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp ground black pepper
  • Cayenne pepper, for garnish


  1. Finely chop onions into small chunks.

  2. Add onions, salt, and pepper into the pan, and sauté them on medium heat until caramelized.

  3. Add the Italian seasoning and continue to cook until it is well incorporated.

  4. Combine your meats in a bowl. Add the sauteed onions, then ⅛ teaspoon of salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning, and mix.

  5. Divide your mixture into roughly 8 portions. Shape the patties in your hands, making a little dent in each one to prevent the center of the patty from swelling during cooking.

  6. Over medium heat, preheat your pan, and pour a generous amount of vegetable oil.

  7. Carefully place your patties on the pan and fry each side for roughly 4 minutes per side.

  8. Use a spoon to baste the patty with juices on the pan as they cook.

  9. Once done, garnish the patties with cayenne pepper and serve. Enjoy!
