If you don't like raw onion, microwave the chopped onion is a bowl for 5 minutes until soft. Cool before mixing with the ground hamburger.
In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, bread crumbs, worcestershire sauce, egg, milk, and onion. Using your hands or a wooden spoon, mix all the ingredients until they are well combined.
Divide the mixture into 4 to 6 equal portions and roll each into a ball. Using the palm of your hand, press down on the top of the ball and make it into a disk. Using your fingers, smooth and shape the outside edges until it is perfectly round. Make a thumb sized indent in the top to decrease shrinking during cooking.
Preheat a pan over medium-high heat and add some cooking oil to it. Or you can preheat your grill to medium heat. Place the burger patties on and cook them on each side for about three minutes. This will cook your burgers to medium. Of course, the cooking time will vary according to the thickness of your burger. Place your homemade hamburger patties on a toasted bun, topped with your favorite condiments, serve, and enjoy.
