If you make your own burgers at home then you already know that there are a million different ways to do it. This homemade burger seasoning is my go to. It’s easy, I always have the ingredients on hand and it doesn’t overpower the beef. It just perfectly enhances it. That to me is a huge factor. I’m a big red meat fan and love the natural flavoring of it.

I’ve experimented with a lot of different burger seasonings over the years. There are a ton of great ones on the market. But sometimes you just wanna get in there and season it yourself. On those days, I make this simple seasoning at home.

Seasoning Ingredients:

  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Dried basil
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Onion powder or dried flakes
  • Mustard Powder

Here’s How To Do It:

Add all the ingredients plus the beef into a medium size bowl
Mix until nicely blended. Don’t over mix or it will cook up too firm and not as tender.
Form into patties
Use whatever cooking method you’d like
Flip them
Add cheese

Another great tip for delicious burgers at home is melting the cheese perfectly. I happen to have a great little trick for that.


And serve! I went bun-less here and i do that often. This instantly becomes keto friendly by just ditching that bun

Thats it! This is so easy to do and makes such a big difference when making burgers at home. Between this and the secret to melting cheese that I mentioned above, you’ll have the best burgers ever right in your own home.

This is an awesome homemade burger seasoning. If you haven’t tried making your own at home yet then I really hope you give this one a try.

    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!!

    Hi T!! I just tried this recipe and was wondering if perhaps there’s a typo in the ingredients list? I’m assuming it’s meant to say teaspoons instead of tablespoons, because I ended up with some very VERY salty burgers haha! I even thought when I was adding everything that it seemed like quite a lot for one pound of beef. Please let me know so I can try these again soon, because I could tell that the burgers would have otherwise had a wonderful flavor!

      Omg thank you so much for telling me. Total error I have to go back and correct it. So sorry about that!!!

    I just followed the recipe as is and the burgers turned out extremely salty and potent! I think the Tbsp should be a tsp! Will have to try again!

      Hi! I’m so sorry to hear that. I actually got that comment a while back and there WAS a typo. It said tbs but meant tsp. I thought maybe it didn’t save and went back to change it again but (on my end) where I see the recipe card It says tsp. Please let me know if you visit the page again and see tbs. I’ll have to have someone look into why it’s not showing. Thank you

    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

  • Anonymous August 30, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    What ingredient is suppose to be a tsp instead of tbsp? Getting ready to try this recipe and want to be sure I use the correct measurements.

    • Al Dente Diva August 30, 2020 at 2:25 pm

      Hello yes it is. I’m so sorry I keep trying to edit it and it won’t let me.

  • Kathy Deane September 4, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    Please correct the spice amounts-I was also confused by the amounts

    • Al Dente Diva September 8, 2020 at 12:19 am

      I’m so sorry I keep editing on my end and it won’t let me. Just pull back on the salt

  • Helen September 18, 2021 at 9:14 pm
