Is this best spice recipe combined with 1lb of hamburger?


Randie June 10, 2012 at 6:37 pm

How much of this should be added to the ground beef? I have a 1 lb. package.

Dudes you don’t combine it with the meat, you just sprinkle it over your burgers before cooking them!

Better when combined…

I know that it says to sprinkle over the burger patties, but I tried to mix it in 1lb of ground beef. I understand now why it says to SPRINKLE. Those burgers were spicy (good, but spicy). If you really want to mix it in, I would suggest cutting the recipe in half.

I was considering trying this seasoning in meatballs, so I am glad for the feedback on how it is mixed with a pound of hamburger. Tonight, I am trying this on burgers the way it says though. I can’t wait!

This was really good! Added just enough kick. Will make this all the time. I sprinkled on both sides and upped the salt a little. In fact I just ate my burger and kinda want another. :/ Thanks for the recipe!!

I am so glad you liked it :)

I made these tonight for my husband. He liked them alot. I think it is the first burger I made that he didn’t have any complaints about. I did use some bacon grease( just a little to coat the pan) to fry them in. I think it added a nice flavor to it.

This was really good! i just got done eating a burger with your seasoning


Budget Savvy Diva August 18, 2012 at 9:09 pm

Awesome!!! It works well on steak as well


Jaime August 30, 2012 at 12:27 am

Used this tonight and it really put a nice kick to my hamburgers. Thank you for sharing this recipe!


Diana April 29, 2013 at 12:26 am

Just had burgers on the grill. This seasoning is awesome! I’ll be making more!

I am looking forward to trying this on our burgers tomorrow. Another thing that can be added to your burgers is either miracle whip or mayonnaise. I mix in 1 tsp per 1 pound of burger. It makes the burgers so tender and so full of flavor.


Anita July 5, 2013 at 3:31 pm

Tried using as a dry rub on a flank steak! Delicious!


Linda July 27, 2013 at 1:41 pm

Best burger ever…. Full of flavor with an unexpected kick and a sweet follow up… A must try!!!


bev February 21, 2014 at 10:29 pm

Nothing better than a good burger


Jessica Wagner March 14, 2014 at 1:04 am

I am tired of using the same seasoning everytime (usually just onion soup mix)… I will try this.


Debbie March 16, 2014 at 2:54 am

Never thought to use brown sugar! I will try this next time


Cyndy April 18, 2014 at 10:26 pm

Another seasoning to make up for those grilled summertime burgers, yummy.
