Blamburger Recipe

Did you know that Kent's parents once owned a restaurant and gallery in Aspen, Colorado called Toklat? This recipe, courtesy of his mom, Isabel Mace, has been our families go to summer BBQ staple for years, and we wanted to share it with you!



  • 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 cup wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • l/2 pound ground lamb
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons high-grade steak sauce
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten


In a skillet, lightly sauté the minced garlic clove in 1 tablespoon of oil. Add parsley, wheat germ, and sesame seeds and saute lightly again. Remove from heat and let cool.

Put ground beef and ground lamb in a mixing bowl. Add the cooled sauteed ingredients, salt, steak sauce, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, and eggs. Form into 3-inch patties. Place patties on grill and cook about 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked to desired doneness. You will need to lengthen cooking time if at a higher altitude.
