Welfare Epic Burgers

You know how sometimes, like towards the end of an expansion, it’s so easy to gear up your brand-new character that you feel like you’re cheating? Epic gear that is really easy to get has come by the nickname of ‘Welfare Epics’, which became the inspiration for this recipe. It is so easy and so simple but the burgers are so awesome it feels like you cheated to get them! And you do, kinda!

You can get preformed burger patties at the store for only a couple bucks more than a pound of ground beef. You can certainly use this recipe and form the patties yourself but when you're pinched for time, getting preformed patties will save you a good 10-15 minutes. You could clear trash halfway up to the first boss in an instance in that amount of time!

Once you've got your patties it's just a matter of making them taste more epic than your average burger. That's where this recipe comes in. Simple is better so I've stuck with basic ingredients that do more to enhance the flavor of the meat than to cover it up like some spices do. Top this burger with some classics like lettuce, tomato, pickles and cheese and people will think you worked hard on them!

Welfare Epic Burgers

2-4 Servings | Total Time: 20 min | Apprentice

  • 1 pkg Preformed Burger Patties (2-4 patties)
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • Kitchen Weapon Proficiency -Indoor Appliance Grill
Recommended Addons:
  • 2-4 Burger Buns
  • Pickles
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Onion
  • Ketchup
  • Mustard
  • Mayo
  • Cheese, your choice
Craft: On both sides of each pattie sprinkle desired amount of onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Gently rub the seasoning into the meat. Heat up your indoor grill and spray it with cooking spray. Place the pattie on the grill and close the lid. Cook 3-5 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from the grill and immediately add cheese if desired. Repeat for other patties.

Strategies: To enhance the flavor even more you can get ground beef instead of preformed patties. Then mix in the seasonings with the beef as you form the patties. This will take some extra time though! Don't have an indoor grill? No worries. You can purchase this appliance for $15-20. You can also just as easily cook this on an outdoor grill when the weather cooperates. Just keep in mind that it will add a little time as well.

LFM: Fries, Tator Tots, Chips, Potato Salad, Coleslaw, Fruit Salad or Baked Beans.
