Growing up, my grandmother used to have all the family over for cook outs in the summers. We loved eating on her screened in porch and the burgers were always amazing with a nice slice of homegrown tomato.
The simply amazing part of the hamburgers was an easy and well known ingredient that gave them a wonderful flavor – Lipton Onion Soup Mix in the burger meat! This is such an easy way to make burgers that a lot of people forget that simplicity with burgers can make them the best!
With each pound of hamburger meat, I add in one envelope of Lipton Onion Soup Mix. Mix well with your hands – don’t be afraid to get in there and get the meat mixed well and hands are the best tools! Another tip is to use meat that has some additional fat to it. I know we normally like to buy the leanest ground beef possible, 93% in most cases. However, for burgers this makes them to dry so I go with 80% or 85% lean ground beef. Once they are cooked, you can blot off some of the grease if you like.
