For the burgers:


  • Veggie oil for frying

For the Sriracha Mayo:

  • 1 cup good quality mayo
  • 4 teaspoons  sriracha sauce (less if you don't want it too spicy)

For the toppings:

  • lettuce if desired
  • cheese if desired
  • ketchup if desired
  • mustard if desired
  • chopped onions if desired
  • 1 package burger buns


For the burgers:

  • Place ground beef in a mixing bowl.
  • Cut off crust of bread. Put in a flat bottomed bowl and pour olive oil over top. Let it soak in then flip over and let other side soak as well.
  • Shred the bread, I tossed mine in the food processor, and add it to the meat along with all your spices and eggs.
  • Mix this all together by hand, or with a fork, or on low speed in a stand mixer.
  • Preheat your grill.
  • Place on grill and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes. Brushing them with olive oil is a huge Shiksa tip and I am glad I did it. Also don't keep flipping them over and over. Just let them cook all the way on one side then flip. Over flipping burgers leads to broken burgers.
  • Note- you can also cook these in a pan with veggie oil.

For the Sriracha Mayo:

  • Mix the mayo and sriracha together until well blended. You can add more or less depending how spicy you like it. Spoon over your Ima Burgers.

Putting it together:

  • Place burger on bottom bun, add sauce and any other condiments you like. Add top bun. DIg in!
