Homemade Burger Seasoning Ingredients:

Now, mix everything to combine it all.

Use about 1 tbs of the seasoning per 1.5 pounds of beef. Feel free to adjust that if you’d like more or less.

adding seasoning to the ground beef

Mix the burgers and seasoning together but don’t over mix the meat. The burgers will become too tough like that.

Form the beef into equal sized patties

Then place onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Put them in the fridge to marinate for a couple of hours. The seasoning will really make its way into the beef that way.

When you’re ready to make the burgers, remove them from the fridge and sprinkle them with just a little more of the seasoning.

Now put the unused homemade seasoning in an air tight container to be stored.

    I always end up having to buy a bottle of this or a bottle of that, just for a teaspoon of an ingredient that I will probably never use again. Which ends up with me having all these bottles haphazardly thrown into my pantry; coupled with my lack of organizational skills, that is not a pretty pantry let me tell you!!! So I am relegated too having to buy my seasonings/rubs but props to everyone who is able to make their own!!

    I was going to try these today. Is one tablespoon of garlic powder correct?

    • Al Dente Diva July 30, 2020 at 1:46 pm

      Yes but you can use less if you want for sure

  • Roger June 10, 2021 at 5:38 pm
